    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very innovative, creative and extremely client focused

    Cons

    Very uncomfortable with the "culture", not for everyone. If you do not adapt completely it can be a difficult place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In a large organizations one size does not fit all. Care should be taken when evaluating people, skills and contributions. Audits and reviews are snapshots in time and not a true assessment of value to the company. Every circumstance is different.

    Former Employee - Lifeguard in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Walt Disney Company part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Recognizable company, safe work environment

    Cons

    Company is so large that you get lost in the crowd. Physically uncomfortable work environments, and very restrictive rules. Very little break time, very long, hot days.

    Extremely difficult to navigate the procedures for getting time off, and even though you may sign up to be a part time, seasonal employee, they take issue when you're supposed to leave to go back to school at the end of the summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accessible, and forgiving.
