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

    Pros

    Good benefits, including park admission. There are some resume benefits in working for a large studio.

    Cons

    They overwork, layoff regularly, provide no opportunity for advancement, and generally provide an environment where most political and least talented thrive. I worked there for at the studio for five years, and it was all about them taking advantage of me and me getting nothing in return. Don't let the park workers fool you- this place is a mistake. If you take a job there you'll be sorry in the end.

    Advice to Management

    None. They wouldn't take it anyway.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse product line and locations offers some internal variety, strong consumer brand, financially strong company

    Cons

    Like with most major corporations - VERY political, little mentorship for future leaders, most are overworked and under appreciated, taking risks in encouraged but failure is not handled well, , change is constant and often uncoordinated, high stress, and career development is the responsibility of the employee. They are will to let people with many years of service walk without concern.

    Advice to Management

    Drive work/life balance and exhibit this behavior yourselves. Working all day, then back online in the evening, and being attached to mobile devices through the weekend isn't healthy for the workforce. Help future leaders develop skills to effectively convey context, delegate, and manage people. Bring back events to express gratitude - the summer picnic, family night in the park, holiday party - are all gone.
