    I worked at Walt Disney Company for less than a year

    Pros

    Great learning experience, management interns are given the same responsibilities as front desk leaders. Training is very structured.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work life balance, schedule was always inconsistent with split days off, day and night shifts. Opportunities to move up within the company seem limited, at least in the shorter term.

    Former Employee - Manager in Burbank, CA

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

    Pros

    get into Disneyland for free, medical benefits were not bad, 401k,

    Cons

    no work-life balance, not provided the resources to accomplish what is needed to be produced, cliquey high school back stabby environment. Was told by my management when we pushed back for continually working the team 60+ hours weekly and burning team out "too bad if they want to keep their job they will work otherwise we have 200 other people wanting to take their job and work for Disney". They are great customer facing but very different employee facing.
