"When Disney is at its best, it cant be beat. The workplace experience varies from department to department and from leader to leader, but overall, the workplace is superior to most. I loved working for a company that truly valued being happy and nice."

"Management stinks: rather than inspiring people to greatness, they intimidate people into submission. It's all about process, for process' sake. They give lots of lip service to putting the "guest" first, but it's really all about project funding, building up management fiefdoms which are measured as the number of direct reports, and making their boss look good so they can climb the ladder themselves."

"I've worked for Walt Disney Company since 2004. Strong company with an amazing brand, known worldwide. People I work with are truly amazing and help each other out. Unfortunately, moving up within the organization depends more on who you know rather than on your skills and experience."
