Advice to ManagementAdvice

not sure if it was really necessary to lay off so many ppl in early 2009. Most of ppl who were laid off were junior levels who probably made a FRACTION of sr. management. WB now has started hiring all over again and already spent so much $ on hiring temps. They spent more money on temps than what they saved by laying off ppl.

They laid off ppl and THEN relized they do need people to run business, so they hired temps. Funny thing is, they pay temps a lot more than their full time employees.

 The money used to pay temps doesn't come from SALARY portion of their budget, but from other sections. so they might save money on SALARY for full time employees (since they have less employees), but they spend A LOT MORE on other allocated budget (paying temps).

 which means they are NOT SAVING $. They are actually spending more. DUH.

    Pros

    #1 brand in the market, there is no other entertainment company that has the market prestige or market power than warner. this is not to be understated - this power enables them access to the best talent and positions them well with major customers. within wb, there are challenges but also a lot of opportunities to succeed. they are very loyal to their people, which means that you essentially get tenure although it is informal. there is also a lot of dead wood and bureaucracy as a result. i would recommend warner to anyone simply based on the brand. overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    #1 brand, but execution struggles. there is an expression in the e

    Pros

    Work and life balance, though this can vary widely depending on department. Benefits are good, health insurance is cheap, and vision care is excellent. It can be a very fun place to work, as projects come through at a steady pace, keeping one involved in their daily work.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic thinking, and a culture of mediocrity. Morale is quite low. It is very very important to be plugged into the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to resource allocation - don't shrink growing business units.
