    Pros

    Perks..... Hundreds
    Pay is fine
    A lot of A type personalities and hard workers
    Main Street Management is not half bad

    Cons

    Costuming is a bit demeaning, can seem like you are a little kids doll by the things they make you wear.

    Advice to Management

    Take consideration to what cast members say and work with them if they have a request.

    Pros

    - Great perks (ie. Silver Pass and Disney discounts)
    - Disney, especially Parks & Resorts, ESPN have been performing extraordinarily well over the past few years.

    Cons

    - Large company so culture varies from team-to-team
    - Can be very political - need to know and befriend the right people

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing what you're doing! The stock performance reflects everyone's hard work - keep the culture positive and try to turn around Disney Interactive.

    Pros

    The tickets and discounts are awesome but that is it

    Cons

    Long hours, not enough pay, overtime was frowned upone and it was hard to move up

    Advice to Management

    I would make it easier for those to move up and be willing to give all the information you can

    Pros

    Parks-Wonderful job if you are single and have no other obligations other than work. Can keep til retirement.

    Cons

    They literally "own" you. Even as part time always forced to double without notice and work 5 days/week 75% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Part time people choose this because they have school or to care for families. Yes we all LOVE Disney by its not our LIFE.

    Disney is a good place to start to get experience on your resume. Fun for people interested in entertainment.

    Communicate to your employees. Take time to say hello in person every once in awhile. Show you are interested in them and their careers.

    Pros

    Silver Pass, Disney events, lots of time doing nothing and playing around.

    Cons

    People are like high school teenagers, if you aren't "in" with the cool kids, you will have a miserable time working there. People seem snobby, because they work at Disney, so it's hard to get "in" when you are new.

    No promotion opportunities

    No encouragement, or congratulations - it's all about money

    Advice to Management

    get a clue, and focus.
