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. "The Disney Club: hard to get into, but worth it."

    I worked at Walt Disney Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Once you're in, the Disney family is very loyal. No one ever leaves because they are so happy there--like Disney Land. Promotions are slow to come but they do.

    Cons

    It does feel like a clique, and you really do have to know someone within, maybe even several people to vet you.

    Advice to Management

    They're doing a great job. The networking aspect of garnering a position is just part of the industry. But, for an outsider...it's near impossible to secure a position of any merit.
