    Screwed up in India - It's not a 'Disney' in India

    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.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company

    Pros

    A creatively driven company at its core; one that inspires and impresses with its ownership/dominance of the market. Highly driven, competitive, and economically sound. A place where you will find great talent.

    Cons

    Sheer size of the organization results in high degree of bureaucracy. A lot of cooks in the kitchen for every discipline. Decision paralysis resulting from too much time taken on consensus building. Resistance to change in many respects, traditions that hold back new ideas. Changing career paths or crossing over into another area of the company is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is so much untapped talent in the employee base - it remains untapped because upper level management doesn't recognize creativity on the part of anyone who doesn't have the words "Creative Director of ___" in their job title. A good idea shouldn't be ignored because of who or where it comes from.
