    Pros

    Great benefits, amazing perks, supportive leadership, magical corporate culture, true sense of being valued, respected & empowered

    Cons

    Pay is not great (but the perks/benefits can make up for this depending on your situation). Like any large company there can be bad apples (both co-workers and leaders), policies you disagree with from time to time, day to day job frustrations, and it is a business so there is still work to be done despite the temptations of fun to had

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great traditions on which the company was founded. The hard working members of the Disney family provide world class service and create innovative products that are second to none!

    Pros

    Disney has a great culture, and I love the team I work at - there's good work-life balance and senior leaders are fair. The people are very nice overall, and the work is always interesting because of Disney's strong storytelling brand.

    Cons

    Disney is a very hierarchical company, so mobility and promotion can be difficult and slow.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for employee development.

    Pros

    It's a great place to meet many people from all walks of life, the corporate culture can't be compared to other jobs I have/had. At the end of the day I am happy to work for this company and making positive guest experiences.

    Cons

    Management keeps changing every 6 months or so, I am seasonal and working a couple months out of the year there's always new managers on the team. I have well over 10 managers who I rarely see during shifts so it makes me question what they are actually doing on a day-to-day basis. Working in the sun is horrible but I knew what I signed up for but just wish that I was in the sun less than 3 hours at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Visit cast members during the day, every time I see a manager coming up to me I feel like I am in trouble because I never see them often.
