How is Disney still among the top five most admired companies in the world? Do people really care that little about the way this place has been treating its employees in the middle of a pandemic??? I know this place has a strong brand, but I was hoping that for once that wouldn't blind people to its misdoings. I guess I thought wrong.

Well here you come back with your insipid
noise and veiled deragetory remarks.
You think if you repeat a lie that has just a kernel of truth over and over again that people will believe it.
Well they don’t .
It’s exactly people like you and others that are draining the magic.
Next time something goes down who can you hide behind.
@mvhp+19dNlyRV Okay, it's been over a month, "Executive Director." I've asked your name, I've done the insane. It looks like you're concerned over opinions after all.
Okay then @mvhp+19dNlyRV I'll bite - it would certainly help with perspective in this giant mess. What's your name?
Or, radical as this may be please bear with here. You could ask my name directly? Is that insane? Of course if you formerly reported up to me perhaps you know me and this is even more silly than. It already seems on its merit.
Quick! Somebody do the research and find on Rostr who is an exec at WDI that also has a spouse in DCL! LOOOOOOL
Mr. anonymous do I know you or do you know me? I am wondering how you can arrive at the conclusion that I am unimaginative and that I use the term Imagineer describing myself in a way that is less than fair. As I said previously I was asked to join WDI and to leave a position with which I was quite happy because it was agreed by several people within the company that my talents would be attributive to the goals of the overall business and accretive to the improvements underway pre-pandemic within the WDI business unit itself. Obviously ,y work has proven valuable otherwise I a, sure I would have been on the list of those selected to depart in favour of improving business performance and cost.
So not only are you arrogant and self centered.You can’t think for yourself.
How many people did you throw away to keep your lousy uncreative parasitic hide still employees and using the term Imagineer which you did not add any value toss you manipulated the system for your position.
I say shame on you, you obviously have none.
I do believe what I know to be true. I have no reason to doubt anything I am told. I was recruited into my position from outside the company and I feel aa though I create value and am valued. I haven’t been given any reason to doubt the sincerity or truthfulness of those above me. I am not immune to the impacts of reductions and I know that. My husband is still furloughed from DCL so I have seen first hand rhe impact of the pandemic on household income.
Cheaters will always cheat and liars will always lie. You don’t know what’s going on behind your back, Executive Director. Here you are giving it your all only to be betrayed by false promises. Oh the lies, the never ending lies. You don’t seriously believe them, do you?
I feel for those who find the need to be so bitter. Situations occur in the course of business that cause the need for uncomfortable choices to be made. This pandemic has created unprecedented challenges across our entire business portfolio that must be and to a large degree have been addressed with remedial actions that, yes, did include reductions of staff levels. The bitterness of thinking there is an “us v/s them” paradigm is unwarranted - personal feelings did not come in to play in the process or at least for the majority of the process I cannot speak for all decision makers but for those I do know and for myself I can say it wasn’t a personality contest.
I can read your post you took and see that you were given company quotes to hide behind. Your a shill .
I understand that bitterness can form when you are separated from your position within a company. I understand and I appreciate that feelings do come in to play - when you are selected to be part of a force reduction you feel singled out, picked on or otherwise targeted based on criteria that you create in your mind through emotional reaction. That does not mean that your selection as part of a reduction was done for any reason other than through deliberative and methodical analysis of the business needs and how to maximize value and streamline cost without losing productivity.
Hey Mr. Executive Director, you are brainwashed with Disney handbook. I was let go from WDI, and it was hardly respectful. My psychotic Manager actually enjoyed letting go the non-kiss asses. She was cold and heartless during the phone call, so Mr. executive director things are not as smooth as you make them sound. You might be in the cheese line too someday, so I advise you to come back to earth!
Poor management is poor management.
This is what we are living through.
Stewardship means planning for good and bad not hiding your poor decisions by covering them up with the cadh cow that the sweat and labor of others created in their divisions that you so callously tossed so they could maintain their positions and profits.
Hey the tides gone out and now we see who has a swimsuit on and who doesn’t.
How is that a man manages a company he didn’t create and becomes one of the largest stock holders in that company through excessive compensation under his tenure?
Somethings are moral some immoral.
For those who argue CEO’s (or any exec) is useless should ask themselves this. If you were to switch places with the CEO, who would cause the greater damage? Who’s job is actually harder? If a front like person or mid level manager can take over Disney, do a better job, while growing the business (we are talking about billion dollar targets here, not a few million) then be my guest. While I generally disagree with CEO compensation but the level of responsibility in their back is stressful and CEO’s do have bosses they need to appeal to as well.
Well, it happened because of poor management.
It’s called stewardship.Bob Eiger is at fault,as is Chapek and others .There bloated salaries are built on the bodies of the employees of the company they bamboozled.
Well it beats the alternative .. keep money draining departments and keep paying people for staying home all the while Disney files for bankruptcy multiple times. I don’t think people understand the basic idea of operating expenses and net revenue from a business perspective. But they do understand these same concepts when it comes to paying/trimming bills and saving for a future vacation. Most people choose to cut off a limb if that limb will k–l you, it’s no different than a business trying to survive. Maybe good people got let go but that’s just real life works.
Going back to why Disney is one of the best places to work .. well, it’s because it is. Grass is never greener, only equally brown. What makes a company better are the things it produces and how it makes people’s lives just a little bit better than without it.
You are a liar.
I worked for WDI for 14 years.
They kept most of the devious and their sycophants, a few are still there who have talent. But you all scrambled to save your semi worthless hides while you threw your colleagues under the bus.
We’re not sheep.
Everyone in California kind of voted for their Demise so it’s hard to feel sorry for them! FL employees suffered to buy a lot less bc the higher ups actually look to take care of the regular people....
So @ executive director, how is that something that was done with respect and with the best interest of the business? Keeping the managers on the team who had work taken away from them because they couldn’t handle it. People with one foot out the door already. Laying off the best coordinators while keeping the worst. For people who know what actually went on with the layoffs, your words don’t ring true.
Lol @ Executive Director. In my wife’s division they cut the newest people on the teams, not to the company. They chose the easy way out rather than actually “retaining talent.” It was a total joke of a process and a director who was trying to not step on any feet, so don’t try to claim otherwise.
We have made cuts, yes. I have had to cut several senior managers who reported to me and re-structure my department as part of the right-sizing effort within WDI. While job reductions are never easy they have been done with respect and with the best interest of the overall business, retained talent and the customer base at the forefront of the decision process. Disney remains an admired company because we cling to our core values while facing an unprecedented paradigm shift within the consumer-centric business model of the parks and entertainment division and the cruise line.
