I found the placement experience on of both the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences I have had. It was fantastic to be part of such a dynamic organization, working across the words most influential entertainment brands.
My internship at The Walt Disney Company was thoroughly enjoyable and I would recommend applying to anyone hoping to take a year out at university into industry. I feel the experience I have gained here will be invaluable for my future career and I cannot express highly enough what a pleasure it has been to work for such an exciting, diverse multi-national company.
Working at Disney has been truly challenging and incredible at the same tims. From my internship the most important memory to me was my team the audit team! They are truly hardworking and thought me what it was to work with multi cultured individuals, work under pressure, manage and plan audits and lastly always to keep striving to learn more.
I did not enjoy this placement one bit. I was in a very unsupportive team who seemed to have a 'sink or swim' attitude. The job sounded fun, but all I was doing was pointless jobs like copying and pasting things in spreadsheets. I quit half way through the year. I would never recommend this placement in this particular department to anyone else.
I have given 10 stats because I have absolutely loved my placement at The Walt Disney Company. I am so sad to be leaving. I have worked here for 13 months and it has gone so quickly and i have learnt so much. I couldn't have wished for a better experience or host company.
Well it was enjoyable in different areas, it was very cool working at Disney with everything that comes with it. But me personally wasn't very happy with what I actually got to do. Mostly because the job ad didn't stay true to what the job actually was, and also bc my manager wasn't very good at managing.
I feel so fortunate to have worked with Disney. I loved every single second of the experience and felt so supported by my amazing team. I leave Disney with new skills and experience as well as huge personal growth. The responsibility given was huge and I benefitted greatly from this.
I absolutely loved it and I have been so sad to leave. The company and the people are just as magical as you would expect. The placement gives you so many challenges and you gain so much responsibility which really develops you personally and professionally. I loved going in every day even if I was extremely busy and under pressure. It was the best year and I really recommend it.
The workplace environment was very relaxed and the open plan layout encouraged everyone to interact which made for an enjoyable working day. There were several opportunities to get involved with outside of the normal working day, such as the May 4th Star Wars event, the Alice in Wonderland Urban Decay makeover and many more. I enjoyed working for a company within the entertainment industry as I was genuinely interested in any work I was undertaking.
