Disney Stream Services review There are few women here but we all band together and support one another. We want every woman to succeed. You will not get the catty clicky environment. Just girl that like to have fun and help one another. A good place to be given all that is coming in the future.

    I pretty much get the flexibility to travel, pickup/drop off my kid, attend my child's events. If I am not feeling well I can take off for the day and makeup hours. I can work a weekend day if I want to have a weekday off. You are trusted if you prove you can be trusted with getting things done.

It really depends on your role, department, and boss. But be wary of taking a project hire position.

    I think it depends on your boss, really. I don't feel much flexibility in my role.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I work specifically in Imagineering. There are many high executive women, but it very much still has a "boys' club" feel. Many jobs now are Project Hires, which means fewer benefits (I get seven days off per year -- sick and vacation combined) and no job security.

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.

    Promote more women into leadership positions

  • Recommend to Women?

    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.
