I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time

Pros

The value of the brand, the connection to storytelling, the creative opportunities, the global reach, the scale of the efforts, the impact on the audience.

Cons

The politics. The emphasis on perceptions, over value. The fear of functioning like a digital company in a digital age. Management does not put their money where their mouth is when it comes to growing talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value and reward those who do good work, not those who complain the most and loudest, or have become the best at manipulating and maneuvering politically.

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

    Pros

    Our team supported and communicated with each other. QA learned from the developers and developers learned from QA so that the sprint could be delivered on time with quality.

    Cons

    Agile is still evolving. The effort was divided among many groups, and coordination delivery of interlocking software made environments very unstable.

    The reorganizations and loss of key people because contracts expired made the effort challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Study what worked and let the teams find their own strengths and solutions.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company as a contractor

    Pros

    Great people, lots of culture, decent pay. Somewhat flexible with the scheduling of days.

    Cons

    Expect to work on holidays. However, most companies expect this nowadays, so no surprise there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember very day what happens on the ground floor. Decisions that make perfect sense on paper (and I am sure that they do) do not always work on the ground
