    I worked at Disney ABC Television full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice people, fun atmosphere, interesting content, good benefits, allowed some flexibility to manage time.

    Cons

    No upward mobility in some departments, toxic employees permitted to be toxic, low morale in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Disney talks a lot about maintaining a positive work atmosphere, yet the company allows employees to misbehave and tarnish the work environment. Employees who are problematic need to be disciplined rather than be allowed to continue bad behavior. Some department heads don't promote good employees to look good for their bosses and to keep overhead costs low, meaning no chance of moving up if you're stuck in one of these departments.
