I have been working at Walt Disney Company as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Our team supported and communicated with each other. QA learned from the developers and developers learned from QA so that the sprint could be delivered on time with quality.

Cons

Agile is still evolving. The effort was divided among many groups, and coordination delivery of interlocking software made environments very unstable.

The reorganizations and loss of key people because contracts expired made the effort challenging.

Advice to Management

Study what worked and let the teams find their own strengths and solutions.

    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.


  2. "Magic, good and bad."

    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.
