    I worked at Walt Disney Home Entertainment full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    My peers were fantastic as were the personnel I supervised. I enjoyed working with them.

    Cons

    When it came to management it was about looking good to their directors or VPs at the cost of the actual workers. Cuts in fulltime workers to part time, this brought the morale down in the security department.

    Advice to Management

    Sincerity and honesty will go a long with the employees. Hiring within, those who have experience, instead of looking outside and hiring friends, will create better promotion possibilities.


  3. Hard work, enjoyable atmosphere.

    I worked at Walt Disney Home Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to learn and build your skills and grow your career. I started here right after I graduated college and I am glad I did because Disney helped me create the structure and guidance I needed to thrive. Plenty of resources available to help you with just about whatever you need.

    Cons

    The job itself can grow stagnant and leave you looking for more. It can be difficult to influence management to improve certain processes to be make your job more efficient.

    I worked at Walt Disney Home Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Prior to 2009, the combination of a growing home entertainment industry and strong products helped fuel a highly profitable division. Smart people and great products from Disney/Pixar, ABC, Disney Channel and others made this division a top notch place to work for. Disney Home Entertainment drove a number of great innovations for the company including great retail presence, amazing franchises, and product innovations such as the Disney Movie Rewards program.

    Cons

    As with any Disney division, individuals still need to find ways to showcase their talents and find successes that can be noticed. After 2009 and the studio restructuring, the atmosphere became more conservative and difficult as the business continues to decline.

    Advice to Management

    Try to bring in a more innovative culture and willingness to try new things that can stimulate the industry.

    Pros

    Great work life balance and a lot of upward mobility. Culture is generally friendly. Location on the Disney lot was great.

    Cons

    Business is downward trending. Its a very political environment where who you are friends with is much more important to the results you deliver.

    Pros

    Super fun team of people, great atmosphere, and you can generally be proud of what you're working on. Beautiful Burbank campus, obviously the Silver pass which gives access to the theme parks is an amazing benefit and pretty decent health care benefits.

    Cons

    Most studio home entertainment groups are struggling and this one is no different. Trying to remain relevant, not a strong enough focus on digital and a lot of upper management that's been around awhile and aren't innovative enough to remain relevant. In general the company doesn't do much to promote from within nor work hard to keep the super talented employees it has.

    Advice to Management

    You've heard it once, you've heard it a million times - you have to leave Disney to get promoted. Value the employees you have, fight hard to keep them from jumping ship for better titles and more pay. Every employee, no matter what level should almost have to re-interview for their jobs every year just to ensure you've got the best people in roles year after year.

    Pros

    The company is large enough that everyone knows and respects the company.

    Cons

    Due to corporate politics, it's hard to get a promotion in the company unless you apply for a differenent position in another department

    Advice to Management

    They should listen to employees more especially support staff. We are overworked and our concerns are not always concerned in the discusion making process.
