    I worked at DC Comics full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Good place to work everybody was awesome and nice to meet.

    Former Employee - Production Clerk in Burbank, CA

    I worked at DC Comics as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free Comics
    Social Gatherings
    Catered Work Nights
    Friendly Staff

    Cons

    Career Growth
    Organization
    Demand vs Pay
    Upper Management
    Time Management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better organization and time management would be greatly beneficial to improve the work space and quality of work demanded from its employees. As an entertainment company, they would greatly benefit from the younger generation of employees who have a vast understanding of social media and a plethora of creative ideas.

    Pros

    Worked with exceptionally talented people. Fun work. Appreciation for a job well done. Great benefits.

    I worked at DC Comics full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at DC Comics full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Please all get fired.

    I worked at DC Comics full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    It's cool if you like comics. As part of Time Warner, they have excellent benefits.

    Antiquated way of doing business, little room for growth, internal communication issues, very bureaucratic.
