Work Environment at the Walt Disney Company
Student Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Greater London – 28 August 2018
The Walt Disney Company in London offers its employers a very disney-esque environment in which workers can indulge in all that is disney:
You will be greeted at the door by Mickey Mouse's face, then proceed to listen to Disney music in the elevator, and finally be welcomed by a variety of disney merchandising spread over all the worker's desks.
The atmosphere is a little tense, as is expected in a company that overlooks 100+ shows on 10+ channels accross 5 continents, but overall people always have a smile on their face, or can count on their peers for help.
The offices are spacious, colourful and any issues related to machinery and IT are usually solved within 2 days.
As a student office assistant, I was trusted with small-ish tasks, but was quickly able to prove to my superiors that I could be trusted with heftier tasks, and it is their trust in my abilities that helped me grow and feel more confident over the course of my internship.
Great cafeteria, good rapport with supervisors, ability to get further training
TWDC does not offer internships to post-graduates
