This study examines the characteristics of mentoring programs in ten organizations located in Rochester, New York. These programs were compared and contracted with the mentoring program employed by the Walt Disney World Company. Participants completed a survey on their mentoring program commenting on the components of the program, objectives promoted in the program, the average length of program and adjectives describing the program. This survey revealed that the mentoring programs in the Rochester area companies did resemble some characteristics found in the Walt Disney World Company's program, the biggest difference was found in why the program was in place. The Rochester area programs were utilized more for orientating new employees rather than teaching employees to positively contribute to the company's success like the Disney program does.
