Know that a lot is expected. "Not my job" or "no one told me" is not in the vocabulary.

I love this company, more for what it stands for, it's global recognition and for its theme parks. However, when it comes to the workplace, maybe it was just my experience with my past manager, but I often felt I was not held at a certain standard or looked upon for promotional opportunities, because of my quiet demeanor. Yes, my great work spoke for itself and my boss definitely valued me as a team member but I couldn't help but feel that there was an ever so slight gender discrimination with this manager. Again, this is just my experience and I have had multiple supervisors while working for this company, all of whom were fine. But again to reiterate, those who are aggressive in this workplace are the ones who tend to get ahead.

It's difficult to move up the chain and if you have a quiet demeanor that is seen as negative

Family Friendly Company with great perks. Everyone works hard but you definitely have to be a squeaky wheel or boast about your accomplishments to be seen.

There are upsides to working for TWDC like their benefits, flexible hours, and perks - but there is also a double standard for men and women when it comes to career mobility, and one must have a lot of patience and be willing to work twice as hard for half the recognition. You must be able to speak up for yourself and have a willingness to ask for what you believe you deserve, sometimes twice or three times, and really stay on them to deliver. Finding a mentor, or an executive that you trust that will also repeatedly go to bat for you is crucial for your success - if it happens to be a man, all the better. There is definitely a 'good ole' boys' culture to a certain degree. And know that HR reps are in place to protect the company more so than they are there to protect you.

Working at Disney is great, it is the happiest place on earth after all. There are certain areas of the company that gender inequality actually runs in the favor of women (Marketing), other areas (like technology) women are few are far between. I find that the company caters to families and respecting time off for kids, but I find that if you don't have a young family and are single is when the inequality comes in.
