    Pros

    I love working in Disney. Im employed at Disney's Animal Kingdom but i've worked in all the parks and almost every hotel. You have the freedom to work in different areas within your training capabilities and meet all kinds of people along the way. Just the experience itself is rewarding.

    Cons

    There can be unpleasant times, even in the happiest place on earth. You'll run into angry guest, unpleasant coworkers and even leaders - like anywhere else. Show up, Do you job, Smile and you'll be fine.

    Hours can be brutal during major projects. There is no benefit for working over 40+ hrs.

    Pros

    There is opportunity for advancement as a manager to those who do not have a college degree. Great team building and support system with the Disney way of conducting work as well as great benefits and perks for employees such as park passes and discounts.

    Cons

    I have worked in the Entertainment department for 15 years but the company won't let me bridge my years of service because I dropped to seasonal status for a short period of time. However, if I had quit the company entirely and got hired back I could bridge my years of service. Also, the pay is not good when compared to the job/workload and comparable positions.
