I currently have the option of picking which Disney office I want to work at (DTCI segment). What is the culture like at each of these offices, and which would you recommend? I've heard Bristol is pretty relaxed and cost of living will be way lower here (plus DTCI leadership is all here), whereas Burbank has a much more corporate feel to it, but is Disney's HQ. Thoughts?

    I’d recommend being in the same location as your boss/boss’s boss/etc. The culture’s heavily influenced by whoever your leadership is, and I found that leadership naturally cares more about the culture within their own location than in remote locations

    Go where the leadership is.

    I'm in Burbank so I'm a bit biased but there is nowhere else on Earth like LA. I'm a transplant - I've lived all over the US, and LA is the greatest city in America.

    Bristol is the middle of nowhere with nothing to do. Finding a career path outside of ESPN in Bristol will be a challenge in the future.

    Seattle is expensive, dark, rainy, and cold. The weather alone would make me miserable, plus it's a tiny little town with a lot less culture than a mega city like LA.

    Depends what group within DTCI. Go where your team is. Relationships/visibility are most important at Disney. Separately, Burbank definitely feels most like you’re “at Disney”.

    I’m in DSS Data in NYC and its pretty corporate despite being a smaller company acquired by Disney a little over a year ago

    I’m also at DTIC and based in Burbank. Been to all of the offices and culture wise Burbank is the best

    Nothing around Bristol. Be around leadership. Seattle is dev culture. Burbank is corporate.
