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

    Pros

    Great people, leadership is terrific, inspiring, positive culture, great development, growth, and collaboration. I love working there and am lucky to be part of a great organization like Disney. I hope to finish my career at Disney. Good benefits and soft perks overall. Great tuition program

    Cons

    The salary will likely be a little less than you can earn on the open market but the soft perks if you love Disney are exceptional. Wish they matched more on the 401k but the company provides great benefits overall for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the outstanding track record you all have in building continued success.
