    Pros

    That the people are nice and they give you free stuff like for example free comic books, free statues of a character, and also free video games.

    Cons

    That they had to let me go because they were downsizing the place and letting people go.

    Advice to Management

    Umbrella of DC Comics and Time Warner. Unfortunate layoffs.

    Pros

    Lots of free stuff: comics, cloths, merchandise, screenings, etc.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they're doing or what kind of work anyone else is doing either.

    Pros

    The best licensed characters to work with and free comics.

    Cons

    Owned by Warner Bros. meaning its managed by business thinking people. Not artistic thinkers.

    Advice to Management

    Let the talented comic people have creative control. Not corporate sell outs who don't know the details of the comic culture.

    Pros

    In my time with DC, I was pleased to be surrounded with peers that were hard-working and dedicated, willing to do anything they could to get the books out.

    Cons

    Where do I start? With the well-documented sexual harassment, the inconsistent vision of the company, lack of advancement, the terrifying feeling of being fired at any minute. I do not recommend working here no matter how much you want to work in comics. You'd be happier at Marvel.

    Advice to Management

    Please all get fired.

    Pros

    Part of the Time/Warner corp giant, helps to insure great benefits and mobility if one is agile.
    Who doesn't want to work for Superman and Batman
    Lots of swag for those who are quick.

    Cons

    Culture has changed from cloistered and immobile to very corporate and immobile.
    Be prepared to spend a lot of time at one position. There are people who have been at the same post for YEARS. It's a giant corporation, you can get lost in the gears of it's machine. Don't expect to
    change things, but pat your back if you do.

    Advice to Management

    There are jewels in that stack that you manage, ones that can bring you into the next century. Stop burying them, instead cultivate and inspire them.
