I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The company knows how to leverage its assets, add value to the community, economy customer base and employees. Everybody wins at Disney!

Cons

Like most companies these days, there are business areas the take advantage of their salaried employees, making then work 60-80 hour weeks without paying them overtime.

Advice to Management

Stop being so greedy.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a well recognized brand. Free passes to the park for you and your family.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours and obsolete technology means you will be very frustrated. The company embodies "group think" and so great ideas are squashed if a committee doesn't agree. Expect to be micromanaged as even Vice Presidents are involved in daily bug triage meetings. Very reactionary leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Plan ahead instead of reacting after the fact.
    Trust your team and delegate authority.
