    Pros

    The friends you make in the trenches. They become your family because of all the turmoil from senior team. They are dear friends that have become family.

    Cons

    You will never be promoted or compensated appropriately. In order to get promoted you have to have an offer from outside. Do not ever think you will ever get promoted on merit alone.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house on upper level staff and promote valuable team members. Stop making up titles like senior manager, executive senior director. And just promote talent.

    I worked at ABC full-time

    Pros

    Silver Pass and free parking to Disneyland

    Cons

    Leadership was outdated and unable to embrace simple technological changes and upgrades that not only would improve working conditions amongst the staff, but would also make the systems work better and cleaner. Worst part was, they already owned and had access to the systems and refused to allow the staff to make suggestions to improve things

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to take the time to hire people with skills to get the job done, why not allow them to try to make a positive impact?

    Pros

    Can learn a lot from various research departments and senior leaders who are willing to take the time to explain high level decisions. Otherwise, none.

    Cons

    The Walt Disney Company sets up their business units to fight against each other for resources and funding, and it's "every man for himself" on a personal level as well. Limited to zero opportunities to move up from within, even with repeated 5 star performance reviews. No clear, consistent goals or mission statement from senior management, and communication is poor at best. Most departments do not like each other and will not cooperate under any circumstances because there is typically no advantage to doing so. Many other key decisions are based on politics instead of logic or merit. Also the employee structure is extremely top heavy, with many company veterans of 15+ years who are not adapting to an industry changing at lightening speed. Making progress takes at minimum several months, if not years, or doesn't happen at all. People within departments often don't work well together either - more interest in being right than doing the right thing. Extremely disappointing experience, and wouldn't recommend any area of ABC or any other TWDC division to anyone.

  7. "This position is with Houston affiliate KTRK TV and it's the worst place to work."

    Pros

    Disney mothership so employees get Disney benefits. It's an independent station owned and operated by ABC. Disney or ABC does not interfere in poor management.

    Cons

    Worst work life balance, runs like a mom and pop place, VPs with no management skills or qualifications. Highly dissatisfied employees o are just there to protect their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    The management is very old school and believes in 18 hour work days.
