Pros

A great nuruting environment that encourages innovation and individual freedoms. The company is truly concerned about the well being of its employees. The company works very hard to ensure that the integrity of the work environment. The compnay gives your the opportunity to learn and do a lot.

Cons

Too much of a locker room mentality/ old boys network, which interferes with and compromises the goals of the company and president. The "pay for performance" program is not properly administered. Some groups are paid for mediocre performance and other groups are not rewarded for outstanding performance. You are also asked to do a lot with limited resources.

Advice to Management

Loosen the purse strings and reward employees and individual employees for their tireless efforts. Acknowledge that it takes a lot to produce the products and reward those who make it happen.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Active, friendly place to work. Always something exciting going on or coming up. Massive company parties, like the picnic and holiday party (R.I.P.).

    Cons

    Human resources is slow accomplishing anything, from contacting you, hiring, posting jobs, and get promotions in order. Sometimes Disney corporate policies are in place that have no relevance to working here.

    Advice to Management

    "Pay for Performance" is a great motto, but I have seen HR policies and politics get in the way of good people with great reviews being promoted while consultants get converted over to full-time employees. It made no sense.
