Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Walt Disney Company as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

They are open to new and creative ideas and try to nurture their consultants. I worked on several animated series for Walt Disney TV Animation and the development people were great. Plenty of freedom given to head writers and artists.

Cons

Lots of people involved when receiving notes on a creative project, maybe too many.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Access to the theme parks. Behind-the-scenes knowledge (for the curious). Pride in the brand. You become popular with old friends and distant relatives.

    Also, the I.T. organization is large and generally follows reasonable and prudent best practices for software development and systems maintenance.

    Cons

    In I.T., way too many middle managers. Information is closely-held. Advancement requires significant role-playing and patience.

    Advice to Management

    I.T. Leadership: The surveys and feedback sessions you receive are skewed and sadly incorrect. Find out what your cast really thinks could be done to make the operation more efficient, and to make themselves happier and more productive. A lot of smart people work at all levels on your team; don't focus all your attention on the master politicians who made it into your inner circle.
