I worked at Disney Studios full-time (More than a year)
Great projects, organised teams, good benefits (at level of other big studios), good facilities for employees and nice offices. Who wouldn't want to work at Disney!
Can feel a bit like a small cog in a big machine. Very important who you rub elbows with. Can be clicky. Committee of executives sending projects in different directions can be difficult to navigate!
Advice to Management
Changing your mind is an executive's prerogative. But having multiple executives sending projects in multiple directions and not communicating with each other can be costly and ultimately affect quality.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Studios (Pasadena, CA) in December 2016.
I was contacted by a Disney recruiter on December 13 and had an initial phone screening on December 16. I was told I would hear back soon. I never heard from the recruiter again. I found out that I was no longer being considered on 1/26 after logging on to their internal job site and checking my status.
