I worked at Disney Consumer Products full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The people. By far the single biggest positive are the people you get an opportunity to work with. The HR Team does an outstanding job of finding intelligent, talented people of high quality character.

Cons

Success tends to be predicated on an individuals presentation and not as much on objective performance.

Advice to Management

Continue focus on the human capital side of the business.

    I have been working at Disney Consumer Products part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Cast Members are great, the job is fun, it's hard to be upset surrounded by Disney. The environment is usually fast paced and the time goes by quickly.

    Cons

    Hours are awful and pay is as well. It is hard work for just a "Sales Associate," they expect a lot from you, and it does not pay enough, in my opinion. But the coming and going of new workers lets you know that you are replaceable and makes me feel as though I can't ask about pay for fear of losing my job.


  2. "DCP was a great learning experience, but the overall apathy and clique-ishness towards freelancers were a turn-off."

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

    Pros

    If you are interested in learning the convoluted political inner-workings of a global mega-brand - this is where to find it! It was fascinating to learn about the constant clashes between the lines of business and studio. DCP requires high-level problem solving skills and solid soft skills.

    Cons

    Longterm cast members have a jaundiced eye towards any newcomers or freelancers. Be prepared to be silo'd off or excluded at first...

    Advice to Management

    Management should take credit for hiring the right person instead of trying to hog ALL the accolades for themselves. Giving credit where credit is due inspires loyalty and continued work excellence amongst your charges.
