It greatly depends on the area of the company. Pay attention to how many women seem to be in the area you are looking, and whether they seem happy. Ask how many of the people in the management chain you would be under and working with are women.

    Certain divisions are toxic within the company and need to be cleansed or reprogrammed. They need to pay attention to where women both aren't and are fleeing from. It should be obvious where the problems lie. Also any area that likes to use words like "rockstar" for their employees, is likely to have problems, and not just for women.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It depends on the segment. Some parts of the company are much better than others. Technology is the worst I've seen.

Disney really is a magical place to work and there are so many benefits. There is a lot of room for growth in both policies and culture change around diversity, and steps are being taken in the right direction, but women aren't on equal ground yet.

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.

Women and men were equally represented in roles of all levels, save the highest executive tier. I was always impressed with the integration and the opportunities afforded to everyone regardless of gender or any other differentiating characteristics.

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.

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