-Management does not understand the complexities of the things they often ask you to do.

    Perks, free admission if you have the time. Discounts on housing, merchandise, food. Notoriety.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in interacting with employees, get to know them, understand them, disney is about family on and off stage.
