Pros

Great name for your resume. The food in the cafeteria is pretty good. Great project to work on. Down to earth younger staff.

Cons

Inbred hiring. Terrible pay for the freelancers who keep the wheel turning. Not very creative environment. Lot's of arrogant old producers, who think they are celebrities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay people fair wages. Scrimping on basic supplies is uneccessary. Eliminate some of the red tape as it affects efficiency of process.

    HBO is all about seniority, not necessarily about talent, leadership or intelligence – very corporate.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, and not to much stress on employees. Programming is cool to work for.

    Cons

    Not alot of career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chain of command thinking is a little out of control.

    I worked at HBO

    Pros

    The content is great. The brand name and reputation is outstanding. The benefits were excellent although I hear that the benefits are changing.

    Cons

    The politics and arrogance is rampant and everyone is a clone. No new or innovative thinking allowed to protect "the way we do it here." Everyone else can see that they have their head in the sand. Anyone who cannot overtly kiss up need not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better get your head in gear because the world is passing you by. Get rid of the old guard and replace with risk-takers. That's not going to happen because you'd have to replace everyone there.
