I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Lots of opportunities to grow. Great experience working for a massive multi-national. Benefits were good, but a bit expensive. Lots of cool perks if you work in the right area.

Cons

Ladder climbers galore. Need to always watch your back for someone. Compensation does not encourage staying with the company for a long time. to move up you have o leave and come back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more incentives for good people to stay

    I worked at Walt Disney Company part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They hire from within, so there's lots of opportunity to change departments and move up in the ranks, they give great access to the parks for you and friends/family. Raises are annual, based on a percentage, as given by union contract.

    Cons

    You start as Casual Regular and your hours aren't guaranteed. They give hours based on seniority so if you're new, you may not get many hours. Because most of the cast members are younger, it may seem like a dramafest. You have to join the union. Only give benefits if you're Casual Permanent, which you need to wait for openings for, as well as do an interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See if it's possible to make life easier for the people going to school while working here. People are constantly getting scheduled during school times and needing to trade shifts.
