Pros

The employee benefits and because it looks good on your resume. If you are a parent, this job is very flexible when it comes to balancing work and family life plus you can take your kids to Disneyland free all you want. If you are an average performer just looking for a regular paycheck and not too much hassle, this is a good place to be.

Cons

Being a hard and dependable worker is not good if you want to move up in the company. Anyone who actually does decent work end up being stuck in their same job because the bosses have grown use to that person making up for the weaknesses of the other staff. Sure it can get you a good bit of a raise compared to your co-workers, but it also means it's more difficult to move up. I worked for Disney for five years and every time I asked for a promotion, I just got the run around while my peers were promoted around me. I moved to another studio in the same job and suddenly found myself being promoted right away three months after I was hired.

Advice to Management

If you have a star performer then reward them accordingly. Your actions speak louder than words. If you tell someone they are valued but don't give them the opportunity for career advancement then you risk losing them to a competitor who will.

    Pros

    Fun company to work for, lots of perks like movie screenings and staff discounts. The people I worked with were fantastic, we worked hard but also took time out to laugh and have fun which is so important for staff morale. Career opportunities are there if you want them.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime at a low level in the organisation in order to meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    I hope management is looking at workplace flexibility for team members particularly with children, and not just for upper management levels.
