"Decent work environment, interesting events and offerings to work on, overall inexperienced workforce. Performance standards and expectations of techs are often low. Gear is largely new and industry standard. Good relationship with management, hard to get in trouble for anything. Overtime is available if desired."
"I have worked for Disney since 2006. I have enjoyed my time with the company but there has been a lot of transition within the Director and CIO positions which has resulted in a lot of changes including restructuring of the IT multiple times. This means a lot of uncertainty. Often a new Director or CIO comes in and outsources a lot of the jobs. After almost 9 years it can be quite frustrating and the latest round of outsourcing and layoffs has left me without a job."
"I have worked for Disney for 15 + years between 2 internships prior to full time employment. Disney is a great company with good values. If not for having been laid off, I would have made it a life long career."
"I have worked at the company for over 17 years and in the IT department I have seen more outsourcing and degrade of service. I am hopeful that this gets turned around and work is as expected."
"I've worked for Walt Disney World as a Senior Java Developer on the enterprise portal since 2005."
"Worked for WDPRO for 3 years, very fun environment and good people."
"I loved working for the Walt Disney World company for over 20 years. I grew and learned every day. Had a variety of roles and my last role supporting the national weddings director was my most enjoyable."
"I have worked at Walt World for about a year. The company culture can take a bit of getting used to, but Disney prides itself on maximum guest experience. Overall I have enjoyed it, but location on property makes a huge difference. Caribbean Beach was my first location and nearly my favorite job I have ever had. Great management and coworkers."
"I have worked at Hollywood Studios for the past 3 years at attractions such as Fantasmic! the Beauty and the Beast show and Rockin' Roller coaster. My co-workers and supervisors are some of the nicest people I have ever worked with. It is just not a place I would like to make a career at."
"I worked at Disney for two short back-to-back contracts as a Senior Technical Writer/Business Analyst Consultant. It was, by far, the most fulfilling and enjoyable role of my career. I enjoyed the work, the boss, the team, the creativity, the cooperation, the wonderful, up-beat culture -- everything. I cannot say enough good things about my consulting work at Disney. Unfortunately, budget prevented me from coming on board as a permanent employee and/or extending the contracts. I love Disney!"
"Very little room for advancement. You are better off leaving and returning. Many people hired in with less experience. Org management needs serious help. I report to people who have no technical understanding of what I do. No resources or training. You must be a Disney fan, that is the only motivation I have."
"I have been working with Walt Disney since Jan 2014. It is a great learning experience and I am getting great knowledge of the professional world."
"Truly where the magic happens."
"Great place to work if you can actually get hired full-time. Unfortunately, since the economic downturn of 2009, Disney relies mainly on contractors and temps. I believe one statistic I heard (unverified) is at approximately half of the 50,000 people at Walt Disney World are temps or contractors."
"I have worked for the Walt Disney Company since 2006 and have been there ever since. The work environment is good but needs to be utilized better. Management within the company is excellent but resources are needed to do a better job. Disney World employees hundreds of workers every day and opportunities to move up are fairly easy to do. Moving around to different locations and also applying for different positions is easy."
