    I have been working at Walt Disney Company full-time

    Pros

    - Some of the best people in the industry and passionate
    - Good technology and in certain cases of course "best in class" / "envelope pushing"
    - Room to make a difference
    - Management cares about the employees
    - Pretty good bonuses
    - Management solicits feedback/ideas to make the studios even better
    - Pride of work and for the final product (wholesome, healthy, family oriented entertainment)
    - Great company events
    - Perks like Disneyland passes for family etc
    - People treat each other with respect, care+compassion
    - Team oriented work ethic
    - Interesting workflows to explore, understand and learn from while working at the company
    - Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Can't think of too many; esp if you are go getter and make a significant difference, you should also see recognition and title progress. People appreciate the impact you make.

    Advice to Management

    (Thumbs up) -- please keep up the great work and the awesome culture going and improving (the latter, only coz in life with anything "we can always do better"); and Thank you for everything ! Please always continue to produce outstanding products/stories, "working from the heart and genuine passion" and continue pushing the tech envelope. Consumers/guests recognize, understand and appreciate your products/experiences crafted with love, care, quality and just the right touch of surprise factor + freshness + tech + great innovation -- and they keep coming back for more and for-ever.

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

    Pros

    The company has some really extremely talented and passionate employees. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Depends on the division of the company but upward movement of career is hard to get unless you land in a division that makes lots of revenue

    Advice to Management

    Be open to taking a chance on employees who are looking to move up, they may not be the perfect fit but eager employees are willing to work hard and learn to fill the roles they are seeking.
