It's sad to say, but unless you're working for a woman-owned company, TWDC isn't going to be much different than any other workplace: not enough women are in executive roles, pay isn't equal, and men, in a silo, consistently make decisions that affect women and the representation of women. As for the next question (about the CEO supporting gender diversity): Yes, on paper he certainly does, and I think he truly believes he does. But that doesn't necessarily equate to equal hiring practices and good representations of women in Disney films, shows, and products.

    While there's a company-wide policy on flexibility, it truly depends on your department/position. If you're an assistant to an executive, you'll have a lot less flexibility than if you're working in marketing or creative, for example.

    Maybe. This is a difficult question to answer, as TWDC is a huge corporation with many different sectors, and so I can't speak for all areas. But generally speaking: The company does not (monetarily) value its positions properly, largely because someone in CA makes all salary decisions for the entire company, whether its for ESPN or Disney Theatrical in New York, or for any of its international sectors. In other words: How can they understand me, or the job that I do and value it properly? (I also discovered that a less-experienced, less-educated, incompetent male co-worker was making more money than me, and I suspect this isn't a rarity. While the company increased my salary to equal that of my co-worker, he is still vastly incompetent at his job and little has been done about that). Additionally, the executive leadership (of my sector) consists almost entirely of white men, with a few white women. There is a lack of diversity across the entire office, and it is difficult to grow or develop while here. On the other hand, the benefits are great, especially the company-wide work-from-home, flexible-work-hours policies. Essentially, whether or not you would like working here depends on your particular field and expertise, and what your priority is (flexibility, pay, etc.).

the company is really diverse and seems to treat and pay women and men equally. There is sometimes a nod to work/life balance rather than a true commitment to it, since we generally work when others play.

Parental leave policy is good and has improved over the past few years. Note that not all options and policies are actually available for use.

It's a great place to work and there is equal chance for growth within the company for men and women. Most of my direct supervisors/superiors were women.

We have some very smart, dynamic women in leadership roles but it's very division specific

Leaderships is still heavily male, but women are cultivating them as allies.

Anything is possible here. Women have to work smarter and harder than the men. If you learn the culture and are savvy to picking up on the inside politics.... you can be president or a VP.

    Perhaps more fair than most, but, most of the 100 VP’s look alike. Slowly changing.
