    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great slate of TV and Theatrical product portfolio. Highly motivated workforce.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Senior management is holding to overpaid jobs. Duplicate effort in multiple business units. Need to revisit corporate structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure not through layoffs but through using available assets and merging business units.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love this place! It's a fun environment among highly qualified resources. Yes, you may see well known people, but better than that, your work is interesting and always changing as the latest best practices are implemented. Benefits are very good and the company will assist with relevant education expenses. Internships are available.

    Cons

    Many employees are more loyal to the company than it is to them. TCO rules. The recent reorganization, resulting in layoffs of hundreds of employees, may have cut too far into the bone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance TCO with valued resources. Do everything you can to reassure retained employees that they will not be the next casualties.

    Pros

    Warner Bros. has a great corporate culture. With very few exceptions, management and coworkers are professional and respectful.The "entertainment industry" perks (summer hours, movie screenings) are a nice add.

    Cons

    Low turnover sometimes restricts upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time. Management generally seems to be focusing on future revenue and growth.

    Excellent time off benefits!!! Great culture in my division.

    Everyone stays (which is good) but that means there aren't a lot of promotion opportunities.

    Pros

    Great Environment very much like a college campus at Warner Bros Lot in Burbank

    Cons

    Only thing I would say is that the day to day business is very corporate. Luckily, I work on a tv show so we avoid that as much as possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to be the bad guy. Focus on your strength which is having a fun work environment.

    I worked at Warner Bros.

    Pros

    Great at formulating and directing campaigns that work.

    Cons

    Not really risk takers when it comes to media campaigns; more formulaic than anything...fomulas have worked for the most part over the years.

    Former Intern - Summer Intern in Burbank, CA
    Former Intern - Summer Intern in Burbank, CA

    I worked at Warner Bros. as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is great at Warner Bros.! Everybody is so willing to help you out and talk to you (even across departments), which made for a very positive internship experience for me. Also, the internship program is well-structured, which is another plus. Interns are invited to movie screenings, panels, and other events, and these were fun to attend. I also enjoyed meeting the other interns. In the summer, Warner Bros. has a lot of interns and being able to bond with these people this truly added to the experience.

    Cons

    New opportunities within company are currently limited. Also, some departments did not have much for their interns to do (I didn't experience this, however).
