    Pros

    Great perks, insurance, stock options, company car and the all important "silver card"

    Cons

    very very corporate atmosphere, can at times feel isolated as it's so big with so many people at least that's the case at the studio

    Advice to Management

    keep speaking to executives and find out how they feel they're doing

    Pros

    I love working in Disney. Im employed at Disney's Animal Kingdom but i've worked in all the parks and almost every hotel. You have the freedom to work in different areas within your training capabilities and meet all kinds of people along the way. Just the experience itself is rewarding.

    Cons

    There can be unpleasant times, even in the happiest place on earth. You'll run into angry guest, unpleasant coworkers and even leaders - like anywhere else. Show up, Do you job, Smile and you'll be fine.

    Pros

    Disney is a great company to work for. They have great benefits. You get free park entry too for you and your family.

    Cons

    The pay is low. The hours can be long. There does not seem to be much room for movement up in the security division. Retired police officers get most of the promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting the old people that will only last a few more years. Promote a younger group who is looking to make a career with Disney and will stay around for the long term.

    Pros

    There is opportunity for advancement as a manager to those who do not have a college degree. Great team building and support system with the Disney way of conducting work as well as great benefits and perks for employees such as park passes and discounts.

    Cons

    I have worked in the Entertainment department for 15 years but the company won't let me bridge my years of service because I dropped to seasonal status for a short period of time. However, if I had quit the company entirely and got hired back I could bridge my years of service. Also, the pay is not good when compared to the job/workload and comparable positions.

    Pros

    Free park entry. Almost impossible to get fired.

    Cons

    You work with people that don't care about the quality of their work. Managers manage NOTHING. They just read emails and tell us what the email said.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the quality of people that you hire.

    Pros

    Some of the best dedicated people who really want to have a great career and make a special difference in consumer lives. Access to the parks, merchandise discount and employee movie screenings.

    Cons

    Too many folks working multiple jobs leading to less quality and burnout. Fear based atmosphere across many divisions. Less competitive pay compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the trenches and find out what the other 90% really thinks. Bring back the magic starting within thereby leading to higher employee satisfaction and better quality for customers.
