I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Well respected and well-reknowned company with plethora of resources. You can stay a professional lifetime and expand your horizons across multiple "industries".

Even though it's a massive company, I never felt like a "number". I truly felt like the company made me a better person - and I had a voice.

Cons

It is a massive company. So, if you want immediate reaction or results - you may get easily frustrated. Change takes time, communication takes time, results take time. But only because it is a well-oiled (large) machine and processes are respected. It is bureaucratic, more similar to a governmental agency - but most Fortune 50 companies I'm assuming operate in a similar function. That's why they are successful. Success takes planning and patience. However, it can be frustrating.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    During what they call 'peak season' the job is great. Long and a lot of hours given. It gets tiring, but is well worth it when youre getting a nice check once a week.

    Cons

    When it isnt peak season your hours decrease dramatically, and dont start back up again until peak season.


  2. "Unsupportive management, chaotic place to work, no room for development"
