Pros

Great perks (free entry to parks, movie screenings, 35% discount). Admiration for the brand

Cons

Career development is the responsibility of the employee. Corporate environment is very political. Perception is everything. SFAs are glorified assistants. Established employees can leave without pause or concern b/c everyone wants to work for Disney. Management not trained properly. Disney doesn't foster engagement among staff (no relationship building activities). It's an entertainment company in the business of making money and not enriching the lives of employees or the community they collect dollars from

Advice to Management

Train middle management

    Pros

    There is nothing good I can share about this company.

    Cons

    As an MBA intern, I'd advise you to stay away from this company. They don't have a culture of internships, and don't know how to make interns feel welcome and at home.

    Their divisions are siloed and communication lines between them don't function. There is no way you can obtain the proper information to do your work if that information resides somewhere else than where you're working.

    The learning opportunities are limited at best, but I guess you can have the Disney brand on your resume. They have a revolving door, and most of their good people leave. So you get stuck with all the poor-performing employees.
