    Corporate as all get-out, marketing-driven, no measurements, just old-school media mill

    Pros

    - learned a lot about how traditional media companies are attempting to be relevant online - was able to play a key role in managing creative resources and leading a few initiatives - given opportunities to take on more work - social atmosphere

    Cons

    - extremely political - cliquey - trivial material (entertainment) - Burbank

    Advice to Management

    Well, many people are happy with the way things are, although most of those I've spoken with are overworked. It's an extremely hierarchical organization, but I don't think there's any way around this for Disney.

    Great company; amazing brand, phenomenal products, talented people and zero work/life balance or support

    Pros

    Great company; amazing brand, phenomenal products, talented people and zero work/life balance or support. You are often tapped to work on projects above and beyond your job that end up being cool but then there is your day job too.

    Cons

    underresourced leaders don't listen zero work/life balance or support good luck getting headcount; you get funding before headcount

    Advice to Management

    listen change hire more for talent than for job descriptions
