    I have been working at HBO full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are amazing - smart, creative, down to earth, friendly, and respectful of each other, no matter what level you are within the company or what department you work in. There is a lot of brand loyalty among employees, and the work is interesting. It's also a very family friendly culture with good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Movement and upward mobility opportunities vary by department. Some tend to have very little movement since people stick around for so long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep employees aware of upcoming programming and products. We can be the company's best ambassadors if we're looped in.

    I worked at HBO

    Pros

    Interning at HBO provides students with a real view of what it's like to work in the entertainment industry. My tasks were always meaningful and not running to get coffee like some internships in New York. Real experience and it's paid! I would highly recommend interning with HBO.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    Pros

    Amazing people and culture throughout my 10 years at the company. Growth opportunities abound, laterally and vertically. I'd recommend working at HBO to anyone!!!

    Cons

    There have been a lot of senior level shakeups and transitions in recent years. The management of change was not always handled in the best way. Lots of time spent not knowing where you stood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up communication! Your people are your best asset!
