    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    internal transfer opportunities at corporate between many lines of business, unparalleled heritage in entertainment industry, interesting growth potential in international markets; culture is generally positive and upbeat on the surface

    Cons

    true to american corporate culture, the company is afraid of change especially letting go of underperformance which breeds incompetence and laziness; work life balance is possible, depends on how much you'd personally like to put in. executives work around the clock more or less; compensation matches market, at best

    Relationship driven company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunities for both personal & professional growth, strong brand, lots of diversity, ability to stay with one company but do multiple different jobs, easy to establish a network of people in all lines of business to help achieve goals, company culture ensures everyone develops excellent guest service skills, great internship programs for college students to start their careers

    Cons

    Large corporation where you can sometimes feel completely replaceable, long work hours if you work within theme park operations or resort operations, being the company is so large it is hard to know all the answers to guest questions & you are taught to very say "I don't know"

  11.  

    No chance for advancement in company unless you know someone personally that work for company.
