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 Management

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.

    Pros

    I've been really fortunate to work on some great projects ranging from small scale employee-only events in Burbank to large scale projects at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. Being able to continue the tradition of making memories for younger generations is the best part.

    Cons

    I think that interns, like full-time employees, should be eligible for a Silver Pass that allows them to visit the Disney Parks as a benefit for long work weeks rather than the limited number of complimentary tickets.
