There are pros and cons that come with a job with the Walt Disney Company. As a College Program Intern (though you are under-compensated, put in poor living conditions, and worked to the bone) you meet a lot great people, have some wonderful experiences and it is a great internship to have on your resume. If you are looking to further your Disney Career, you need to either be hired into Professional/Management internships right away, or directly into Line-of-Business. This is because to be hired into entry-level operations is to undergo a long a grueling journey for even minimum job advancement. Do to the sheer number of employees and the craziness that plagues daily park and resort operations, good work can often go unnoticed; and with so many highly qualified and wonderful people clamoring for very view higher positions (that are often given to interns anyway) you'd have more luck swimming out of a pool of syrup than furthering your professional prospects in operations. Leadership is hit or miss, either you have absolutely stellar folks who are fantastic at what they do or people that (for one reason or another) make the operation ten times more complicated than it needs to be. It is also important to note that choosing to work for Disney is to see the less shiny side of the Mouse, a clear glimpse into the corporate atmosphere that every day becomes more apparent. Concern for ideals and the treatment of Guests and Cast Members is penultimate when compared to furthering company profits and gains.

In short, when you work with Disney you will meet wonderful people and life
  more... long friends, but depending upon your entry job you may find the experience to be interesting at best.  less

Disney was a great place to work. I learned most of my customer service skills there. Unfortunately the pay was very low. I made many memories working there from the people that you meet and the history you learn.
