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

Pros

Great benefits and theme park perks. Fun working environment and supportive leaders. You can basically write your own ticket within the company because it is so diverse.

Cons

You must come from outside the company or leave and come back in order to make a decent salary. Senior leaders will openly admit this.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time

    Pros

    The value of the brand, the connection to storytelling, the creative opportunities, the global reach, the scale of the efforts, the impact on the audience.

    Cons

    The politics. The emphasis on perceptions, over value. The fear of functioning like a digital company in a digital age. Management does not put their money where their mouth is when it comes to growing talent.

    Advice to Management

    Value and reward those who do good work, not those who complain the most and loudest, or have become the best at manipulating and maneuvering politically.


  2. "Disney was an Inspiring, educational, rewarding, and fun place to work."

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company as a contractor

    Pros

    Great people, lots of culture, decent pay. Somewhat flexible with the scheduling of days.

    Cons

    Expect to work on holidays. However, most companies expect this nowadays, so no surprise there.

    Advice to Management

    Remember very day what happens on the ground floor. Decisions that make perfect sense on paper (and I am sure that they do) do not always work on the ground
