I worked at Disney Interactive Studios full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The people you work with. This isn't "just" a job, everyone here wants to be here. Great benefits and perks. Salaries are decent. The facilities (depending on your location) are top notch.

Cons

Annual layoffs. Like clockwork, at the end of January there will be layoffs. If you survive it, don't breathe easy - there will be another round of layoffs in March or April.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about your people. Pick a game plan and stick with it.

    I worked at Disney Interactive Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - get to be part of a massive brand and create fun and creative things for kids
    - perks were good (free passes to disneyland, discounts with various vendors like Apple etc)

    Cons

    - a lot of unnecessary politics and power plays
    - can be very cliquey, and this affects professional judgement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing the corporate ladder game and focus on creating amazing experiences for your audience. Listen to the people you've hired as experts in their fields, you did hire them for a reason after all.
