    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best managers I've ever worked under. Great articulation of the company's brand. Corporate culture great for employees with children. Decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Moving up can be challenging. At times very political. Unless you work in Burbank or Orlando, it can feel very disconnected.

    Relationship driven company

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunities for both personal & professional growth, strong brand, lots of diversity, ability to stay with one company but do multiple different jobs, easy to establish a network of people in all lines of business to help achieve goals, company culture ensures everyone develops excellent guest service skills, great internship programs for college students to start their careers

    Cons

    Large corporation where you can sometimes feel completely replaceable, long work hours if you work within theme park operations or resort operations, being the company is so large it is hard to know all the answers to guest questions & you are taught to very say "I don't know"
