I realize not only if is it important to have good company culture, it's good to have a unified company culture, and we certainly do. So sue me, I've drunk the Kool-Aid. If I had ambitions to be an analyst and had the tenacity to work year in and year out to try and climb the corporate ladder, I would stay in a heartbeat.
Three months into working there, we were given a summertime gift of all-day tickets to Disneyland! I've lived in Los Angeles for about 8 years at the time, and I had never been there! So I rounded up ex-Disney employee Jennifer Lee and our new Ex-NYer Richie Kim on a journey to Anaheim. One of the corporate benefits of being a Disney employee was having a pass for the employee and a friend to visit Disneyland as often as they wanted. I think she had been there something like 14 times in 1 year, so naturally she was our guide through the maze that was this theme park.
I've been to Disneyworld about 4 times in my life, so I was rather surprised to see how small Disneyland was. In a sense, it's perfect for a day trip, there are something like.
Although they didn't close off the park, there were quite a few corporations there on that day, I think our company and PWC basically had the run of the park.
I bought a sparkly Disneyland shirt as a souvenir that you can see in the pictures, and came away with a handful of memorable fotos. I can't believe this was a year and a half ago - I'm super skinny because I just came off of the flu. Goal weight! Goal weight!
As we're heading into the 2 year anniversary of having a coporate trip, I think we're about due! I wonder if it'll be Disneyland again!
