    Pros

    This is an amazing company that provides top-notch benefits to its employees. I would have stayed for the duration of my career had there been advancement opportunities in my market.

    Cons

    Working in a market with limited opportunity for growth made it a challenge to really connect with things happening in major hubs like Fla. or CA.

    Pros

    Multiple ways of advancing career. Even our resort president was previously a janitor first. Some departments promote faster than others. Free entry into the parks plus discounts. Lots of fun events and programs. Benefits are reasonable and company acts like it cares. Plus you're working for one of the most respected companies in the world with a focus on family entertainment.

    Cons

    Sometimes it depends where you go. When you start at the bottom, your pay is not great. Once you move up your hours hardly ever get better if you're working in the theme parks. Outside the theme parks you can get into normal schedule otherwise enjoy a random schedule. You can sometimes be at the whim of whatever area you end up in management wise. You may be on a great team or a not so great team.

    Advice to Management

    No micromanaging!

    Pros

    No pros I can think of.

    Cons

    Worst company you could ever imagine working for. I worked in a professional field and from day one was not provided mentoring or guidance one would expect from a company as big as Disney. I have worked for another Fortune 250 company prior to Disney and it was far superior. One major con is the fact the leaders criticize yet don't help you improve. The term "feedback is a gift" is regularly thrown around to sugar coat the constant berating by colleagues and leaders. If you are offered a job here, think long and hard before accepting. I can honestly say it was the worst professional experience of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and develop them.

    Cons

    Honestly I do not have a bad thing to say about Disney! The company wants everyone to succeed and there are so many tools and perks!! Maybe the pay is low but the discounts make up for it!!
