    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time for 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.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Chances for development around different corners, able to transfer into different fields over time. Access to the parks are the best

    Cons

    The pay wasn't the best out there. Management didn't always have the Cast members best interests in mind when it comes to well-being and health at times. Long work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind that cast will get exhausted if they continue to be scheduled long hours

    It's a great learning environment and looks awesome on a resume. Silver Passes are awesome.

    You're always made to feel like you're about to be laid off. Can be quite heartless. Hard to get promoted. Many people leave and then come back to get raises.
