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

    Pros

    Strong brand, great leadership, products are great, collaboration is key, strong relationship building skills required, the goals of the company are clear and everyone is going in the same direction, global company, stability and growth

    Cons

    Big ship may not be as nimble, depending on people or department, may have political environment,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your internal employees with raises and market pay, the external ones are getting it so it's almost like your punishing those that have been with Disney (get out of the "I have to leave and comeback to grow especially in pay)" mentality.
