    Pros

    Great company with amazing brands and media. Being a world class brand with world class benefits enables Disney to attract amazing talent. I've worked for terrific leaders and managers.

    Cons

    The variety of cultures between the groups make it difficult to have realistic expectation. Frequent reorganizing at the top led to a many successes to be toppled so new management could "fix" things

    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?

    Pros

    The true assets of this company lie in the people who make up DCP.

    Cons

    As a "startup", Playmation set out to re-imagine the "radio drama" into the 21st century as an immersive and interactive audio experience for kids. This might have been a case of imagination coming before the proper execution of an innovative product.
