    Disappointing

    Production Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat place to get experience, they will work you to the bone so anything else seems to be a piece of cake.

    ConsThey work you to the bone and very difficult to work your way up unless you're in marketing, they are infamous for the high turnover there. Other than that, not much room to advance, very, very, very much a place you need to play the corporate politics game.

    Great people, fun place to work, hard to get promoted

    Manager, Marketing (Current Employee) Burbank, CA (US)

    ProsSuper fun team of people, great atmosphere, and you can generally be proud of what you're working on. Beautiful Burbank campus, obviously the Silver pass which gives access to the theme parks is an amazing benefit and pretty decent health care benefits.

    ConsMost studio home entertainment groups are struggling and this one is no different. Trying to remain relevant, not a strong enough focus on digital and a lot of upper management that's been around awhile and aren't innovative enough to remain relevant. In general the company doesn't do much to promote from within nor work hard to keep the super talented employees it has.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou've heard it once, you've heard it a million times - you have to leave Disney to get promoted. Value the employees you have, fight hard to keep them from jumping ship for better titles and more pay. Every employee, no matter what level should almost have to re-interview for their jobs every year just to ensure you've got the best people in roles year after year.

    From an admin. POV

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Burbank, CA (US)

    ProsThe company is large enough that everyone knows and respects the company.

    ConsDue to corporate politics, it's hard to get a promotion in the company unless you apply for a differenent position in another department

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should listen to employees more especially support staff. We are overworked and our concerns are not always concerned in the discusion making process.

    Walt Disney job Performance.

    Paralegal (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking for Disney was overall an acceptable experience. A large corporation has the financial backing for job security. A good work life balance.

    ConsSuch a large corporation it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. Sometimes it feels like upper, upper management is really not looking out for anyone else but themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more flexibility in work schedules. Understand that employees need vacation time and do not make them feel like they are asking for something unreasonable.
