    I have been working at Walt Disney Company as an intern

    Pros

    Amazing people
    Access to the parks
    Early access to content

    Interning at Disney is honestly amazing. In my case, I rarely felt like I was being treated as an intern would and felt a part of the team.

    Cons

    It's a large company, and it's easy to sometimes feel lost in it. My hope is that they work on creating a program that will better help interns convert to full-time.

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

    Pros

    Awesome benefits and an opportunity to start career in early childhood education. If you have no experience in ECE this is where to start.

    Cons

    Poor management overall and no room for growth in the center. You get to only be a lead and I have been in the roll for 6 years not much growing. Wish there challenges and something to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Need more room for growth for staff and trainings

    Sometimes there is more downtime than I would like, but I am only an intern, so I understand that they can't give me a project that would take more time than my internship.
