    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Of global operations (excludes India operations):
    1. Fantastic quality of management
    2. Remarkable coherence on IP led strategic growth

    Cons

    Of India operations
    1. Low-level self-serving management in India
    2. Continuing lack of strategic IP led growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sorry but you all failed to build a Disney in India. Got some volume on revenues? I can bet my money, its all tactical with no strategic builds.

    For a quick win you lost your chance and let low-level studio folks run your business. Clean it up Disney. I hope you do.

    Pros

    This company holds their brand at a high standard, and they take care of their employees. It was a team oriented company.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of room to grow unless you moved to a different state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees more with their hard work, but other than that, management is great.

    Pros

    Good benefits and reasonable pay. A challenging work environment.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. This place eats managers for lunch so the vision/plan at the group level is always changing. The review system is just a box to be checked by the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the review process work both ways, some of the managers are truly awful and need a lot more guidance.
