    I have been working at Disney Studios as a contractor

    Pros

    Great work environment. Exiting place with all the great film people shooting movies and shows...work life balance is awesome. They encourage moving around if you are doing contract work here and are performing.

    Lift the hiring freeze in departments that are understaffed.

    I worked at Disney Studios as an intern

    Pros

    They truly put a lot of effort in to their internship program. My supervisors worked hard to improve my skills and help me network with other execs. I wouldn't have gotten my current job without their help.

    Cons

    There is little entry level openings at Disney Studios. I wish they would add more head count.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! I think my management knew what they were doing and had a great program.
