    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training opportunities
    Overall, great, creative people to work with (everyone seems to have a strong talent expressed outside the office - many with entertainment avocations)
    Excellent benefits
    Disney VoluntEars offers many ways to donate your time and talents
    Excellent discounts on parks admission, hotels, and merchandise

    Cons

    West Coast locations have more telecommuting opportunities than East Coast locations.
    Some business units are a bit "silo-ed" amd would operate better with other units if there were more chances to encourage cross-departmental interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To encourage sales teams to work together instead of against each other when pitching the same client, make sure each sales team is gets a bonus whether their individual unit gets a schedule or not.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well respected and well-reknowned company with plethora of resources. You can stay a professional lifetime and expand your horizons across multiple "industries".

    Even though it's a massive company, I never felt like a "number". I truly felt like the company made me a better person - and I had a voice.

    Cons

    It is a massive company. So, if you want immediate reaction or results - you may get easily frustrated. Change takes time, communication takes time, results take time. But only because it is a well-oiled (large) machine and processes are respected. It is bureaucratic, more similar to a governmental agency - but most Fortune 50 companies I'm assuming operate in a similar function. That's why they are successful. Success takes planning and patience. However, it can be frustrating.
