    Pros

    An amazing Company with strong values and a drive to take care of their Cast Members! The Walt Disney Company is truly a dream come true! I look forward to my return with the greatest Company on Earth!

    Cons

    Through my 5 years with this company, I found very little cons. If I were forced to share, I would say that The Walt Disney Comknay forces you to be patient during a challenge. It is a large company and fast moving, but it working with a lot at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus of development! Remember your values and stick to them; teach them and make the world a happier place!

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time

    Pros

    Getting into Disneyland for free is amazing and so much fun! I am able to get into the park for free plus 3 guests! Plus, we get 4 additional tickets per year that we can hand out to friends and family. We also get plenty of holidays off, 10 sick days/ PTO, and 10 vacation days. I also love that we have two cafeterias we can access on a daily basis. I personally am not a huge fan of the food, but am grateful we even have the option. Lastly, I live 25 miles away from campus so 6 of us who live on the West Side of LA vanpool together. Disney provides a van that has Wi-Fi and we ride it to and from work everyday. It costs me about $50 a month (huge savings)!

    Cons

    It's a huge challenge trying to transfer into a new department/ role. It's very competitive! You just really have to network, and get on people's radar. In addition, having the option to work from home varies greatly between departments/ managers. Lastly, the environment that I work in is so quiet and boring. My management team never wants to do anything fun! Other departments organize bowling events, pizza parties, ice cream socials, etc. Again, depends on the department/ manager.


  6. Fun place to work!

    Pros

    Everyone I work with is very positive. They all want to be there and they all want to create magical moments for guests.

    Cons

    The pay probably isn't as competitive as other companies. But there are a lot of benefits in addition to the moderate pay.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really awesome perks as a cast member. I also met a lot of awesome people. Disney does train their employees very well!

    Cons

    Some of the managers are very rude and they don't really care about you. They basically tell you what you can and cannot do, which to me is not really working as a cast or team.
