A really great place to work once you are a permanent employee
Sr. Mech. Designer (Former Employee), Glendale, CAApril 26, 2013
Pros: free coffee, cereal, and bagels
Cons: you are damned if your project goes over it's hours budget, even if you were assigned after the fact.
THey treat you like gold and give you a lot of creative freedom BUT its very hard to become a permanent employee and there is a lot of competition. Other than that, the work is stimulating and fun. The management has a good sense of comradarie.

Very inspirational and great properties to work with
Food, Health and Beauty Coordinator (Current Employee), Toronto, OntarioJuly 4, 2012
Pros: working for the best brand in the world and the co-workers.
Cons: small office and low growth opportunities chances.
Well, who doesn't like to work for Mickey and Minnie? The properties are great and have a huge legacy behind. I knew my position was not going to be a challenging one, but it motivates me to work for one of the most recognized brands of the world. The hardest part of the job was understanding I had to develop a low profile position and making the decision – more... to leave and look for a more challenging position with great growth opportunities. – less

Unique and fun job
Archives Registrar (Former Employee), Burbank, CANovember 18, 2014
The most enjoyable part of the jobs I've held in The Walt Disney Archives is that there is something different to research every day. I've also enjoyed coordinating museum and Disney Parks loans of our costumes and props for domestic exhibits and international exhibits.

It all depends on the leadership team.
Attractions Host (Current Employee), Anaheim, CANovember 18, 2014
Working here I have learned a lot. Fun place to work at. Difficult for advancement. Pay is not the greatest but hey payed vacation, sick days. Get people in for free. The most difficult will be at night or weekends because there are more new people. Something will always go wrong.

they are not ready for diversity, if you are a minority your hard work will just be hard work, you will not move up, nor will you be considered.

Productive & a lot of fun.
cast member (Former Employee), Tucson, AZNovember 4, 2014
A typical day at work since it was during the busiest time of the year that I worked (seasonal) was crazy but a lot of fun. I loved my co-workers, they were so sweet and it was great working with people who love Disney just as much as I do. The hardest part of the job was just the stress of it being a busy time of the year but it wasn't all that bad – more... because how could you be stressed while you're surrounded by your favorite things! The most enjoyable part of the job had to be interacting with the kids and getting to use the discount we'd get.. you'd think I were 6 years old by all of the things I have! – less
