    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.
