I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time for less than a year

Pros

Work load is manageable and the workplace is generally stress-free. The culture encourages co-workers to be friendly and personable. If you enjoy the parks, then the unlimited pass is a very nice benefit.

Cons

Coworkers seemed to fall into two groups of Disney experience: 3 years or less with the company or 10+ years. My interpretation of this dichotomy is that (1) young professionals become frustrated with the corporate bureaucracy and many antiquated business practices (and leave) and (2) since Disney is one of the few private companies that still offers a pension, the "lifers" cling to their position (and protect it) until retirement. De facto, it appears that Disney prefers very loyal employees over very apt employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

An upgrade in the technical skill set of your staff will allow you to operate at the same level for a fraction of the labor costs.

    Free park admission, working for one of the best companies in the world. Making a difference in peoples lives, Making people happy all day every day.

    Cons

    Lower pay on average compared to other companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the pay could be a little bit higher, but I appreciate being given the opportunities to move up in the company. People who say there is no room for advancement are people that should not be advancing anyway.
