    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    Class "A" client and studio

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 Employee - 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).
