    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.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits with park perks.
    Good managers.

    Cons

    Crazy schedule, full time means no personal time. Especially in the magic kingdom. Park hours get extended all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of opportunity to move up, for the past 2 years they have been on a manager hire freeze. Except if you are an intern you can basically go right into management. While regular cast members have to sit back and watch while we have to wait for the freeze to be over.

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

    Pros

    good health plan, 401k, park tickets,

    Cons

    Siloed business units, Tons of waste, Narcissistic leadership, Cronyism, Continual "reorgs" that fuel the dysfunction they are designed to quelch. Your boss gets credit for your work, you get nothing. The politics are mind numbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Happiest Place on Earth is an oppressive grind.
    Promote from within for a change, I watched you bring in total idiots over and over wasting time and money.
