    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits (getting into the parks and employee discount are awesome)
    Friendly coworkers
    Great chance to work with very valuable intellectual property

    Cons

    Disney is a product focused company, meaning that the fellow software engineers are far from the top in their field. You'll come across quite a bit of incompetence and it can be very frustrating. There's also not a clear path for how to advance your career here.

    Advice to Management

    Have higher standards for technical skills in software engineers
