    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.

    Pros

    In spare time, you got the free option to play in the parks. Training was also paid, and helpful for the job. Some management also actually cares about you, and other managers clearly hate their jobs.

    Cons

    Worked REALLY long hours, sometimes 10-12 hour shifts, for dirt pay. The DCP accommodations are also pretty crappy, and they take the money straight out of your paycheck, and then give you really unreliable transportation to and from the parks/work.

    Very friendly staff and leadership who work hard to achieve great work, collaborative with others, and have fun doing it. Very organic, swift approach to trying and testing new things!

    Cons

    Sometimes there's a lack of focus and processes which can result in confusion, redundancies or lack of coordinated and efficient results.
