I worked at HBO as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Welcoming environment, brilliant execs, good level of responsibility and exposure to business for an internship.

Cons

Little upward mobility, disgruntled executives because of lack of upward mobility, can be resistant to change and transformation (even though that seems quite opposite to what the brand projects and promotes). I guess why rock the boat when it's clearly working (case in point, look at all those pretty emmys)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Internship program is great, no complains.

    I worked at HBO full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a very efficient company with sound processes and procedures. All pertinent info needed to do one;s job to the best of their ability is always provided in a timely fashion

    Cons

    There are some high powered SVP, EVP's who have the charm of a iron maidan torture rack. Scumbags actually....
    No one ever moves up here. Only once in a blue moon. If you want to climb the ladder, go to a playground. You will get better results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loose your damned attitudes. you did not invent planet earth, you just make filthy programming that looks good.

    Good if you are a lifer, not good if you still need to maintain your skills for another 30 years

    Former Employee - Database Administrator in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, Good salary, casual attire, flexible hours, not too demanding, good location.

    Cons

    No training. No ability to change groups. Little chance of using new technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier to change groups. The company needs to try to keep up their employee's skills or they will leave to build their resume somewhere else.
