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

Pros

Theme park tickets. Seriously, get your experience and then run for the door.

Cons

Non-existent work-life balance. Incompetent lower level executives are championed and retained. HR thinks staff turnover is healthy. A unique company history is not enough to make the top 25 list for culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people above market, not below.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Happy, smart people to work with, average pay, pretty good benefits. Beautiful offices to work in. Downtown parking is paid for by the company in Seattle, though that varies from city to city.

    Cons

    Layoffs happen constantly and it shakes up the morale of the company. Do not work in Disney Interactive, most layoffs seem to come from that division in my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to move up in their career by actively discussing and learning about other groups with open positions.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, main entrance pass and a company that overall exceeds expectations. Some businesses are better than others.

    Cons

    I expected a corporate environment but the politics are more challenging than expected. I believe the success of the company contributes to a culture where people are afraid to say no. While failure is not an option, nor should it be, I've seen management overpromise and then throw their people under the bus when it was impossible for them to deliver. Avoid certain areas of corporate until the leadership is held accountable for their underperformance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take look at your newer initiatives that are under resourced and hold the leaders accountable.
