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.

    I have been working at Disney Studios full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting product, leadership at top Studio level are forward thinking and making smart business decisions to position the company as an industry leader. Interesting product to work on. Good group of colleagues.

    Cons

    Tends to be on the cheap side in terms of salaries. Also seems to be a lack of concern for employee morale. Some of the people in charge should not be.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership needs to hold those at VP level more accountable for their actions and how they treat their staff.
