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

    Pros

    Very rewarding, great benefits and pleasant culture.

    Cons

    Long hours, out in the sun, lower-level management and organization could use some patch work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mainly to be more organize, time and effort wasted in wrong areas based on poor managerial planning.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and high level of collaboration. There is opportunity everywhere and people will engage you. Pay is competitive and the benefits are fantastic. Overall - this is the best storytelling and technology company in industry with the BEST CEO of any Fortune 500. Give it strong consideration.

    Cons

    Typical for a big company - executives can be a little over-bearing and the hours can be long. Perfectly manageable if you have a good level of IQ and EQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping empowering your employees.

    Pros

    Is a vey friendly place to work no pressure/

    Cons

    There are not that many cons that I can think of other than the hourly pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish there was more opportunities for full time instead of having Seasonal Cast Member they should just eliminate them and give full time status to part timers.
