I worked at Disney Consumer Products full-time (more than 3 years)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 ManagementAdvice
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.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in November 2013.Interview Details
I met with a number of key stakeholders in one day at several campuses. The process seemed lengthy and the structure that wove these corporate officers together was unwieldy. It didn't seem like a few of the interviewers knew exactly what they needed from the position of why the position was important, just that they needed help.
I found one gentleman to be downright arrogant. He immediately asked me to solve a problem with no background on the "why" or "how" of the situation. It was a sort of "gotcha" moment that was intended to put people on the spot but it made him seem desperate.
In the end, DCP seems to have the financial backing of actual goods being sold, as opposed to Disney Interactive. I enjoyed speaking with Margita, however.Interview Questions
