    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 worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere at Disney World is joyous and full of diversity. This past employer tops my list of favorite places to work.

    Cons

    Some positions are expendable especially if the expected quotas aren't being met. The communication required to avoid a separation of employment should be more evident.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your professional as well as your personal relationships with fellow employees of equal interests. The Disney family stays in our hearts forever.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Walt Disney Company as an intern

    Pros

    My position at Disney was a "professional intern" which means that my job was specifically suited to my field and I had solid consistent hours, which many Disney positions as a "college program" employee do not end up being or having. I learned SO much because Disney has so many resources to do new and innovative things. Also, having Disney on your resume is awesome.

    Cons

    Hideous "costume" AKA uniform, very difficult to get days off.
