I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Perks perks perks! Free Admission, discount stays, discount meals, special free tickets to events. The list goes on and on and on.

Cons

No work / life balance (one of their so-called core values), Favoritism, Typical office politics, Honesty is not smiled upon (another one of their so-called core values).

Advice to Management

Remember your so-called corp values. Openness, Honesty, Trust, Balance... Remember your cast members have families - your perks are great but if we never have time to see our families how can we use them?

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meh - experience is a good thing and Disney is good on the resume

    Cons

    Meh - the work environment can go from good to bad in an instant with the expectation that everyone will become a stepford "This is the Happiest Place On Earth" robot...

    be prepared to check your brain at the door or suffer for thinking and having a point of view to help the moral of the company and ultimatley the experience of the employees....SAD!!!

    Advice to Management

    Meh - Retrieve back your sold souls and care about yourself and others and not just the dollar. Life is more than that, even at work. Let's truly embody what we sell to the world, a sense of family and hope for fun and 'magic/faith'
