I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The company knows how to leverage its assets, add value to the community, economy customer base and employees. Everybody wins at Disney!

Cons

Like most companies these days, there are business areas the take advantage of their salaried employees, making then work 60-80 hour weeks without paying them overtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being so greedy.

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

    Pros

    The perks are awesome if you a fan of Disney - free admission to the parks, 40% off on all merchandise, discounts on restaurants in Disney and some that are in the vicinity too! (same goes for random stores, just ask... once I got a 20% discount on shoes!)

    Cons

    You don't get paid that much, if you're working for Disney, you're working there because you simply love the company and want to be "part of the magic"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Uphold the Disney brand by being the 'nice, sweet, friendly' person people think you should be. Not everyone walks in that way...

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

    Pros

    My mentor was very good at balancing always giving me a project to be working on completing and an informal assignment (trying out a task reserved for my bosses) to let me apply the skills/information I'd internalized in meetings & observation of my superiors. I was thrown in the deep-end and expected to swim within days of the commencement of my time there. I was given tasks I'd be expected to complete effectively and efficiently or risk becoming the rubberneck in our small departments information pipeline. Direct access to company heads a plus. and pay that ranked top 5 my year of companies (outside of finance).
    Also, just because you8 got an intern position in one department, the intern program run by lovely Gina has all types of learning experiences planned. You leave knowing a great deal about each and every vital function the difference divisitons play to run thisd well oiled mickey mouse box office machine for

    Cons

    Occasionally, as an intern---sorry, Summer Associate...you do have to complete menial tasks that borderline help the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly for a day have mentor switch with a association in a similar or unfamiliar job duty.
