"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."

"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."

"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."

"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. "

"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. "

"It was a good company to work at and move up the ranks. Most of the team members were women sprinkled with gay men. There's a cap on how much you earn at each level and once you get to Publicity Director you can remain in that role for years until a spot opens up in management. Maternity time off is average. The HR team was hardly ever helpful. They had a solid Mentoring program which allowed you to network with people from other divisions."

"It's a great family company for the benefits. I haven't been pregnant so idk how the maternity leave works. It seems like they are *trying* to change. Putting women in more leadership roles, just not sure how long things like this take to execute. I think in general it's still a boys club, but the company was founded on that mentality anyway. I do, however, believe that they are aware of the problem and want to change it."

"Networking and who your senior-level advocates are is everything here...not necessarily about the work you do, but rather who you know and how much they will do for you. There is some (not-so-subtle) gender bias on the creative side I did notice at the highest levels, but generally women and men are treated equally. However, it is important to note that the majority of the leadership positions are staffed by men due to the good old boys network. This is why finding a male advocate who will actively support and push for you is key - this is a lot harder than it seems because most everyone is focused entirely on promoting their own careers vs. helping develop those below them."

"Depends on your division. Terrible work environment full of egos and backstabbers on the Studio side, much better in Interactive and the Networks."

"The management training here and the managers you will find here are going to be the best ones in the industry. I have never again had such good management. The training that you will get here for leadership will stay with you throughout your subsequent careers. I really do not have anything negative to say, other than some petty coworker stuff that can be like a high school atmosphere...but that remains pretty much everywhere and you rise above it. I loved my time working there and would have stayed had I not left to pursue a career in Engineering. It was an awesome job to have in college."

"I've worked for the Disney Company 4 separate times. First time as a housekeeper, then a merchandiser (both of these I was in the college program), a Graphic Design intern, lastly as a sales associate for the Disney store. My first time as a housekeeper, I would have told my self, "Do NOT pick this job!" Disney failed to mention they expect you to clean 16 rooms in an 8 hour day. Too much work to me but if you think it's worth $8.50 an hour to haul around a 50 pound "cart" then maybe you'll be better at housekeeping for Disney. The next time when I was a merchandiser I enjoyed myself so much more and made lifelong friends. I would advise women, don’t pick your favorite park to work at if you’re asked what’s your favorite park. The more popular the park the harder you will work. As an intern, I would advise you to always have a backup plan in case Disney does not decide to hire you on a full time basis. I.E. in case you’ve only been there for 6 months, now you need to break your lease at your apartment, figure out home to get home and find a new job. Lastly, as a sales associate, do not except working in a Disney store is anything like working in Disney World. The stores are way more sales driven and far less “just have fun with the guests” driven. I hope this advice helps."

"The people I work with are great. Upper Management is not very good at listening to suggested improvements, although they are constantly asking for ideas. Men are treated better overall, to be frank. I've never had an need with maternity leave but my female colleagues say the company is very generous to those who have had a need."

"It's a very polite culture and nothing gets done with a lot of collaboration and buy off by a lot of different departments. That being said, there are many women in high-level positions In fact, throughout my five years there, most of my Managers, Directors and VPs have been women."
