Disney is a machine but an exciting place to be, especially right now. Streaming Services in particular! WLB can be a strain, but overall while it's corporate there's good spirit at Disney.

Disney is not known for good benefits and comp for tech , so make sure to check your offer through and compare. It’s also much less so a tech company than like Netflix
