      I talked with a Disney recruiter recently. He asked for my current salary. Kid you not he asked "is that TOTAL comp or..?"
      He never called back and by his reaction, I never pursued him.

      Disney is known for being a cheap @$$!!! The biggest of all in fact! They don't offer anything at all. Their benefits is not even mediocre. Stay away at all cost.

      So I guess they still don't compete with the likes of FAANG then I take it?

      Agree. Never ever go there. It's better to be unemployed than work for Disney!

      Spoken by an elitist idiot who's clearly never been unemployed before.

      Sometimes unemployment is much better 😂 you get paid (although too little) for doing nothing

      That awkward moment when you realize that you also work for Disney...

      I presume you quit Hulu back in March then?

    This Hulu guy flipping out is a tad much, but yeah Disney’s pay is nothing special. Definitely won’t be on par with FAANG. On the culture front, there is a lot of political back and forth right now because all of these teams they just hired are fighting for ownership. It’s an organizational mess too which is probably not as bad as Netflix. Growth problems. DSS is working around the clock right now but they just switched to RSUs in their LTIP so we’ll see how that goes. All in all, I would jump ship if recruited by FAANG. Disclaimer I don’t work within DSS but a tech group within Disney that is close to them.

      Agree. It's a 💩 show at Hulu & now with Disney it won't get better. It's actually worse. I think a lot of people will jump mid next year since the reigns & $$$ are getting tighter.

    I know several folks who have joined in the last year. They all hate it. Politics aplenty, management doesn’t seem to give good guidance to their reports on how to do their job effectively

      On certain teams bc of pressures of launch we didn’t even do our year end reviews the last two years.

    Disney’s known as the stingiest of the studios so expect to get paid 30-40% of a typical faang salary. It doesn’t compare at all with Netflix in terms of benefits and pay and work culture.

    Also a lot of favoritism and BS. Don't expect to get rewarded for doing a good job

    Apparently they don’t even give stock. On the other hand, it sounds like a chill place.

    • Actually it's not! Very tense and not chill at all
