    Pros

    Great people, smartest I've ever worked with. Some roles can give you real stand out and in licensing you work with the top partners in most categories. Disney has powerhouse brands so typically you will be working with senior contacts within the licensee's business and building a great network.

    Cons

    Networking can become your second career... The focus for a long time was on spin, not substance, with senior management focused on managing the message upwards. It can become frustrating and when it does leave. Once you leave you will look back and realise how much you learnt at Disney - it will have been challenging but it will have been worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Disney will always be able to attract talent and talented people will always deliver results. More clarity on how goals / aop is set and an honest two way discussion will create a plan that can be delivered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Disney Consumer Products (London, England) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online- then had a short telephone interview and then asked to go to the head office for a 1st round interview.

    First impressions were that it was a very corporate company/ building and a little intimidating. So many lifts and rooms to navigate. Even though the building was big the interview was in a very small/ slightly claustrophobic room.

    I had two interviewers the first was the UK recruitment person and the second the Consumer products person.

    The interview was an easy first half talking through work, experiance and looking forward in how I wanted to progress in my career and what I could contribute to the position. These questions were asked by the consumer products person.

    The second half was conducted by the UK recruitment person and were totally off the wall questions which caught you off guard. A bit of a gruelling end to an interview.

    I think the interview would have gone more smoothly and felt more relaxed if these questions were first and then experiance and qualifications after or if these were worked into the conversations when talking through work. This would have put me a little more at ease and allowed me to answer more confidently and with proper context and meaning.

    Although the process was a little scatty the interviewers were lovely people and tried to ease you as you sat in the intimidating environment.
