I worked at Walt Disney Company as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Great managers, laid-back work environment, a lot of flexibility with getting the job done, ability to work independently to solve problems or with a cross-functional team, exposure to senior management, a wide variety of problems to solve.

Cons

Workload was far too light, it was hard to feel like I was bringing value at times. Not enough feedback on projects from management. Disney doesn't have positions for their MBA interns until they have headcount available.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (who says no to free admission to Disneyland/Walt Disney World), discounts on merchandise and food, you play where you work and work where you play

    Cons

    The point system is very unforgiving in Disneyland, Walt Disney World is much more forgiving as they don't weight them as high as Disneyland

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become a little more involved with your Cast Members, they look to you for help and answers. There were sometimes where the managers were more intimidating than helpful and you didn't want to go to them. Be proactive with Cast Members and see what you can do to help them thrive and succeed in the company.
