    I worked at Walt Disney Company part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, ability to move laterally, incredibly friendly working environment where creativity is always encouraged.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive, long hours, full time work is not guaranteed even after 5 years of working full time hours at part time status.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a better chance of success by eliminating the hierarchy of status, or make it temp to perm. Increase wages to be more competitive with other markets.

    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.

    Pros

    Benefits, People, Personal Growth, Experience

    Cons

    Training, People, Management, Long Hours, Hard Things to Clean,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more attentive to employees. For part timers, we don't get much work days. Sometimes we are away for 5 days and come back to work only to find out the hard way that some rules or procedures have changed and you get in trouble for doing something you thought was right but the protocol was changed without anyone saying something to you.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company strives to stay relevant, always takes a creative approach to entertainment.

    Cons

    A bit management top heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow creatives to do their job, during management meeting set goals to accomplish, don't just meet for the sake of meeting.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    Benefits at TWDC are top-notch, and the perks are unmatched if you have a family. Being able to put employment with this company on your resume opens a ton of doors when it comes time to seeking a new opportunity.

    Cons

    The company is very siloed, so it's a hard place to solidly expand your skills. Additionally, the company doesn't promote from within as much as you would initially think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your existing talent pool when searching for the right fit for openings.

    College Program Internship

    Former Intern - College Program in Orlando, FL
    Former Intern - College Program in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Walt Disney Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Met many wonderful, now life-long friends through this internship. All of us share a love of Disney, and were excited to be "part of the magic".
    -Free park entrances to all parks, plus 18 guest passes for friends and family.
    -Great discounts at Disney hotels and cruises, etc.
    -Decent merchandise and food/bev. discount around the holidays.
    -Every job I have applied for or had after this internship was impressed-not many make it through their college program, especially with a spotless record. This is a great internship to have on your resume!
    -Can request certain days off and will be given them if no one else higher than you wants off.

    Cons

    -Insanely long work hours, with low pay (I had a slight salary increase due to role in attractions/entertainment).
    -Working on holidays (I expected this, but I worked 7-7:30 from Dec 23rd-Jan 2nd) Overtime pay was nice though.
    -Intense physical appearance requirements that could affect many- hair color, facial hair, nail polish color/nail length, tattoo restrictions, costume checks, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent college grads are a great market- they often have no solid job lined up for after Disney- offer them full-time employment in their role if space allows/help them transfer! I had many friends who wanted to be kept on full (or even part) time, but instead went home and now moved back to be seasonal.
