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

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company as a contractor (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
