    Pros

    Good company, great benefits. Fast pace environment with lots of great opportunities to excel. Follow ITIL methodology and currently using service now for CMDB.

    Cons

    Lack of executive direction. Very political and most leaders are managing up. Large push to move everything to the cloud and outsource all IT services to India based companies. Disney like all companies are about the money

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared to navigate the political landscape. You will hear from CIO these great messages that you want nothing more then to apply, only to find executives lose the message and focus on political land grabs.
