    Pros

    It pays decent money for the work done.

    Cons

    No benefits. They hire through temp agency and keep people hired that way for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more communication directly with the primary art director would be helpful.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
