    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Waterdog is one of the veteran indie record labels in Chicago with its own recording studio. As a small company you're involved with every aspect of getting music to the market from engineering to promoting albums and shows. Plus you're working with one the best songwriters and performers in the Midwest. The Disney association is long-gone but this form would not allow Waterdog Music to be listed as the company.

    Cons

    Due to the downturn in the general music business, there are limited financial resources to expand what the company currently does or bring new projects to completion.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, paternity/maternity leave, park passes, and you work with good people.

    Cons

    Pay is not on scale for the work you do and Leaders are not at 'Disney' as front line cast members. Not many opportunities to move up in the sales environment. My Job was a facilitator and I got paid hourly where as any other Full Time Facilitation Position in the company is Salary.

    Advice to Management

    The company is hemorrhaging money due to turn over. Look at investing in your front line.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were great benefits as far as the parks went and the management was welcoming enough.

    Cons

    Long hours as to be expected in busy season. Leadership could have been better. I saw a shift in priorities in the company as a whole; more concerned about money.

    Advice to Management

    Get creative in engaging employees.

    Great team members from around the world

    Cons

    Some bosses treat you like you're replaceable, which you're because everyone wants this job.

    Poor pay for such a humongous company.

    Block out dates on park access to employees

    Advice to Management

    Treat all castmembers no matter the position just as well you do the customers.
