No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Disney Studios as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

I was extremely lucky to work with some of the funniest, talented and generally most interesting people I've ever met in this industry.
This was the first job that I absolutely fell in love with, something I did not feel was possible, where hours of the day just melted away leaving me with more creative energy than when I started. The work was both enthralling and exciting. This job was the reason why I love animation and am so drawn towards working in the industry again.

Cons

Not feeling fast enough with my work and not being able to work on more shows.

Advice to Management

Continue to create more artistic opportunities and continue working with great writers and storyboard artists and let them soar at what they do best.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Disney Studios full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits (Silver Pass gives you unlimited access to Disney Parks most of the year, great 401K, health insurance)
    Part of a great tradition and a great brand
    Great IP's to work with

    Cons

    There has been a great deal of turnover at the top ranks of the studio the past few years. That has resulted in shifting mandates where one head appreciates one approach and then that work is invalidated by a new mandate. However, all appearances show that the management has finally reached a stasis.
