    I worked at Disney Consumer Products as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for several Disney divisions on projects and Disney Consumer Products was absolutely the best group of all. Great friendly, supportive environment. Solid supportive management and they provided a lot of opportunity for success. One of my favorite jobs in my entire 25 year career.

    Cons

    I wasn't able to get a full time staff position at the end of my 18 month contract

    I worked at Disney Consumer Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Creative environment with lots of great people working at the top of their game.

    Cons

    Unstable leadership structure. Executives constantly move around the company and every time the leadership changes, people lose their jobs. It's super stressful. I was there for many years and every time an executive position changed we all lived in fear of "re-orgs". And they ALWAYS came. Sometimes immediately, sometimes months later.

    Advice to Management

    The best people with the best ideas get jaded very quickly when you create an environment where doing good work doesn't mean you will be recognized for it. Lots of talented people lose their jobs every time a new VP shows up. It makes us all shut down and discouraged us from doing our best work. Why bother when it makes no difference? When the relationships you foster and the ideas you share are immediately off the table when new management arrives?

    I worked at Disney Consumer Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Perks are great! Free entrance to Theme Parks and discounts to Disney Stores. Your spouse even gets his or her own Entrance Pass.

    Cons

    Where to begin - first of all there's constant changes with Disney. So if you don't mind with changes, then Disney is your place to be. It's unfortunate that Disney isn't the happiest place to work at. There is constant layoffs with Disney which I'm surprised when Disney itself is doing well. During my 5 years there, it seemed like you would put your sweat into your job and Disney can easily replace you or don't care about you. There is no work/life balance at all being in the accounting world. Expect to work a lot. Everyone was bummed that they disallowed working from home (YOA). Also if you want a career change, don't expect HR to help you. I reached out to HR MULTIPLE TIMES (emails and phone calls) and they won't assist you or follow up with you if you need guidance. Also, it's hard to move up unless you kiss butt to management which I saw multiple times (when they didn't deserve it). I'm much happier and stress free where I am at now than being at Disney.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your team - get to know them! Reward your team!!!! Your team are the busy bees and if they don't feel appreciated, they will eventually leave. Keep the morale up! Our team building events became work days pretty much...
