    I worked at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    Great group of employees to work with. Very family oriented. Wide range of project types. Free admission to parks a good perk if a fan of Disney

    Cons

    Work loads do not match the pay. Non-competitive salary to outside world. Very, very political. benefits are not as good as the rest of the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the who you know not what you know mentality and put qualified people in leadership roles. Unqualified people in leadership roles will cause you to not be able to retain good employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cast Member appreciation will go a long way, it has declined over the years. Overall great management in the parks.

    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.

    Disney has a way of not being very transparent when it comes to assessing how you are doing on the job

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    - Health care, 401k, Park passes

    Cons

    Everyone looks miserable and have been there for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new people with fresh ideas and energy. An employee who does the bare minimum is just as dangerous as one that does nothing.
