    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Emphasis on diversity, good cooworkers, access to parks and restaurants, overall goal of providing a great vacation experience for people from all over the world

    Cons

    Promotions are random, communication between teams is negligible, a silo mentality pervades, despite being a first name company the company is far more vertical than horizontal.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on letting people actually use their full potential, break down more of the walls between teams and curtail political promotions

    "Long hours, little pay, and lots of getting yelled at!"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Being a front-line representative of the Disney Company's legendary guest service is a plus in and of itself. The costume you wear, the tools you use, and the tours you give have so much history behind them that it's hard not to be proud about the nametag you wear.

    Cons

    You will never be able to raise a family off of the paltry wages Disney pays to its hourly cast members. Rubbing even more salt in your wounds is that you completely dedicate your entire self to the company when you become employed by them. When everyone else is off work (weekends and holidays), you instead can guaranteed to be working. Forget any fathomable chance of a M-F 9-5; it takes 25+ years of seniority to get anything even close to that.
    Add to all of these fun things the fact that Disney guests have no higher expectations in life than when they come to the parks, so when something goes wrong, prepare to have the wrath of Kahn thrust down upon you and taken out on you personally.

    Advice to Management

    Drastically increase compensation (it might help with the terrible employee retention) and learn to give balance between work/personal life.
