    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 worked at Walt Disney Company part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Chances for development around different corners, able to transfer into different fields over time. Access to the parks are the best

    Cons

    The pay wasn't the best out there. Management didn't always have the Cast members best interests in mind when it comes to well-being and health at times. Long work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind that cast will get exhausted if they continue to be scheduled long hours
