      Good place to learn

      Pros

      Good work/life balance, consistent workload, interesting platforms, and a healthy productive/learning environment.

      Cons

      Little room for growth. With consistent workload comes monotonous work, that could improve with automation.

      The worst, most dishonest company you’ll ever have the pleasure of working with

      Pros

      You get to work for “Disney” which is a name everyone knows. Outside of that, I can’t think of any pros since there aren’t really any perks.

      Cons

      Benefits package is terrible and base compensation is no where near commensurate to what it should be. Do your self a favor and work ANYWHERE else but here. Do that and you’ll get better pay, more work life balance, and benefits that are actually decent. Working here is confirmation that Disney truly ruins everything (good or bad - they make it worse).

      Good Work Life Balance; lots of bureaucracy

      Pros

      Free Passes into the parks (Subject to Blackout dates) Company wide priority is work life balance lots of opportunities to be promoted within the company.

      Cons

      Even with a distributed workforce, remote employee are second class citizens and there is a bias by some managers who seem to think remote employees cannot be as effective as in person employees. (I hope the pandemic will change that). Lots of bureaucracy, for example approval is needed for just about anything public you do, such as presenting at a local user group or interacting on social media about anything Disney related.. Contributing public posts to the company blog is a nightmare process that could take many months for approval. As part of your year end review, you have to prove you have taken time to do personal development, the work schedule is so booked there is no time to do that on the clock. Every single development team is built as a silo, meaning we all write our own deployment scripts and manage our own servers, which means a lot of teams are doing a lot of duplicate work, and doing it badly.

      Experience depends on team

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decentralized, empowered management; good work / life balance, good pay and benefits. I’ve loved my experience working here because I have good leadership.

      Cons

      Since experiences really depend on your team, if you have a bad manager, it could really shape your perception of the company. There is no standard review system, so it’s difficult to tell where one stands.
