I worked at Disney Interactive Studios as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Nice people, good free food.

Cons

Contract work... little to no conversions to FT positions (1 in the two years i was there). Constant "carrot dangling"; "Oh yeah, we are trying hard to get more people converted to Full Time positions" and then nothing happens, or even worse, dozens of people are laid off.

Advice to Management

Pack it up and move the whole operation in Palo Alto to Glendale already. We know it's coming anyways.

    I have been working at Disney Interactive Studios full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working on the enormous hit title, Infinity. AAA home run game with more to come. Great people. There's creative input you won't find at other studios. Work hard, get your stuff done, you'll be okay.

    Cons

    Don't fool yourself, it's the game industry. If this is the career path you've chosen be aware things can change quickly, always be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Smart decisions have been made to get us here, we're onto something good. The project's a hit, the momentum's rolling, let's keep it going!

    I worked at Disney Interactive Studios as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Don't work here because you are a Disney fan. There is nothing happy or fun about the culture at this location.

    Cons

    People don't collaborate and are not there to work together.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more positive work environment, encourage fun and collaboration.
