    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The reputation you hear about for The Walt Disney Company matches the employee experience. The company has a strong sense of ethics, a focus on inclusion, and gives everyone a chance to be innovative. Open jobs are posted across the entire company, so it's easy to see internal opportunities. As a salaried person, it's required that my leader takes the time to have ongoing career conversations with me. Also, we're encouraged to make a plan to get to those aspirations. There are a lot of opportunities to gain skills and experiences, both through everyday work/stretch assignments and through online and classroom learning. I've had the chance to move across several types of functions (like operations, sales, communications), which doesn't happen at a lot of other companies

    Cons

    It's very much a relationship-based culture. If you're not willing to do some networking, it's harder to move around. Also, there is a lot of collaborative work, so while there's a good degree of autonomy, working on major things means there will be a lot of conversation to get things approved / done

    Advice to Management

    Keep going in this direction, and encouraging more frequent and better conversations between leaders and their teams. This has been happening more and more, and it makes me feel more motivated and included than ever before
