"The happiest place on earth (to work)"

Pros

Fantastic organization, strong history and traditions. You feel the magic when you are on-site and the people are so engaging and willing to help guide you through your internship.

Cons

Not a lot of benefits! I thought we would be given full privilege to Disney benefits (park entrance, etc.) but I was mistaken.

    I have been working at Disney Studios full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Disney season pass, free screenings, the product is interesting (ie movie titles)

    Cons

    - office politics are absurd. Everyone is backstabbing each other and in defense mode. No one takes responsibility for anything.
    - one for one ratio of manager to SFA which leads to micro managing
    - no flexibility or appreciation....it's not a work hard play hard environment. It's a work hard and keep working culture
    - not treated respectfully...will give you a project at 5 pm on a Friday and expect you to complete it before going home
    - job is super easy and you don't have to use your brain...basically a vacation (with political stress)

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating your staff members and the work they do for you. They are people, not computers.
