Company Culture

This company really works to instill a sense of teamwork and pride in its employees. The job can be demanding but the incentives are equally valuable.

Support from management

Most of the time I found managers to be receptive and supportive.

Teamwork

The company gives a lot of on going training and opportunities to grow and become great communicators.

Freedom to work independently

A lot of effort is put into training and teaching image so I believe they trust employees to do the right thing.

Internal Communication

I do believe the company works to consistently communicate goings on with its employees.

Gender Equality

I truly believe Disney works to be an equal opportunity employer. I worked under many truly inspiring women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I think older employees are treated well, I worked with many.

Career Development

There are many opportunities for growth in this company and they really do invest in the continued training of employees.

Overall compensation for your work

I do think the pay should be better for middle management. Many great people turn down positions because the pay is not very competitive.

Office / Work Environment

Facilities were often upgraded to ensure the best working conditions for employees.

Environmental Friendliness

Disney has been making strides in better practices for the good of the environment.

Work-Life Balance

I think work life balance could be improved. Willingness to work with employee needs and requests has diminished over recent years.

Company Image

I was quite proud to work for Disney for 16 years and only left when I moved and the commute was unreasonable.

Job Security

I did feel my position was somewhat stable after I achieved a certain amount of seniority.

Handicapped Accessibility

I also observed accommodations for handicapped employees.

Workplace Safety

A lot of work goes into safety training and execution of best practices.

Challenging Work

Because the resort has grown so much there is a lot of effort needed to get in and out of the resort with traffic and construction delays the norm. The job is all about service so the days can be challenging constantly working to ensure guest satisfaction.

Inclusive / Diverse

I experienced many opportunities to contribute ideas and give feedback to upper management.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would encourage negotiating for area seniority.

What I like about the company

I had the opportunity to train and move into many different positions during my career with Disney. In doing so I got to experience the pride and excitement of being a part of many special events and company achievements. I met and worked alongside some truly great people.

What I dislike about the company

I feel resort seniority hurt consistency and quality of work in various areas. There was more pride in ownership of smaller employee groups and a more personally satisfying experience, ex: company willingness to accommodate college student availability.

Company Culture

It all starts with the leaders if they don't set the trend who will

Support from management

this the area that could be improved

Teamwork

they do encourage this but when comes time to put it into action there is no flow through

Freedom to work independently

They are good about letting you share your thoughts

Internal Communication

The company is constantly pushing how we can all improve your performance and our experience with the customer, yet when dealing with them behind the scenes the magnet does not set a good example '

Gender Equality

we have women mangers and in upper management, alll are treat very well

Attitude towards older colleagues

yes older employees are treated well

Career Development

not asa many as i would like as the company is a participant of a much lager company, the participant has contact with the lager company but is much smaller

Overall compensation for your work

im in a tipped position so a lot of it is up to me

Office / Work Environment

yes its safe and tech is a available

Environmental Friendliness

yes very much

Work-Life Balance

work life balance is impotant you have to have a life outside of work to recharge your self for the upcoming week

Company Image

yes with the exception of a few things its a good experience

Job Security

I've been there a long time yes my position is very much stable

Handicapped Accessibility

yes there is plenty of that at my location of employemnt

Workplace Safety

they are very good about safe training and proper info about what you need to do as well to prevent a accident

Challenging Work

Its not very challenging if you can manage your time well and multi task, the problem lies with communication with upper management and changing things for the better of the company and the customer involved

Inclusive / Diverse

yes they is a wide vast of people from all over of are treated very well

Suggestions for improvement

  • the culture needs to improve, get rid of the people who do not put in the effort and this includes a lot of managers

What I like about the company

I have been here a long time and i would change somethings, the over all experience has been good not great. Im going to start with the good about the company I work for for 1 the benefits are better than some companies out there paid vacation time, paid personal days and paid sick time all of which are provided by the company, vacation time grows the longer you have been there so you could end up having 4 weeks vacation. Insurance health and life are provide at a fairly affordable price. There are small raises every year but nothing special as there is a union involved and you can't do your own bidding. Most of the empolyess treat you fairly as well as mangment. Now for the not so good, management needs to improve the don't always set the best example and sometimes down right do not care, this can rub off on other employees very easily. So in closing you would have to take the good with the bad.

What I dislike about the company

the mangment needs to do a better job leading and setting a example

Company Culture

Even though it's a gigantic company it feels like a family because everyone is friendly and open.

Support from management

The work I do requires accountability from other partners which doesn't happen a lot of my work is unnecessary

Teamwork

A team that does not have honest rest communication is not going to be successful at this company.

Freedom to work independently

There's trust but there's also a lot of oversight

Internal Communication

We get a lot of information but a lot of our customers also know more than the employees.

Gender Equality

It does not matter your race gender or anything else at this company it's a very inclusive place to work

Attitude towards older colleagues

Again this is a very inclusive place to work the only time that age might matter is if you're close to retirement during layoffs you might be the first to be offered a package.

Career Development

It really depends on where you work. The location I'm in right now does not have a lot of upward mobility.

Overall compensation for your work

In comparison with others in my company my pay is pretty good but in the industry it's pretty low.

Office / Work Environment

For a Fortune 500 company they can't get their act together with air control and air quality.

Environmental Friendliness

Company has a better recycling program than most cities end of the great job trying to educate employees about how to save the environment at home as well

Work-Life Balance

My current role has a lot of work-life balance but there are very many employees who don't get a balance at all. Scheduling practices can be terrible.

Company Image

Anytime I tell anyone where I work they get excited about it which makes me excited

Job Security

my department has been reorganized four times in the last three years and I feel like if there were layoffs anywhere in the company my department would be one of the first to go.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes this company sets the example with being accessible to all.

Workplace Safety

There are a lot of security measures and good training to help keep us safe

Challenging Work

Current work is very thought-provokingand stimulating. But I have been doing it for a very long time so it's gotten a lot easier.

Inclusive / Diverse

Absolutely this is the most inclusive culture you can find.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make sure that when rhe organizations happened it's not just because executives think it's a good idea. There needs to be more input from the people who actually do the work on a day-to-day basis.

What I like about the company

I've been working at this company for 20 years. If you work full-time the benefits are excellent.

What I dislike about the company

There's a lot of bureaucracy. The number of reorganizations have gotten out of control.
