Finance and Accounting = absolute insanity

Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Burbank, CA
Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Burbank, CA

I worked at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The work is interesting and some of the employees are nice

Cons

Low pay. Constant issues with software and absolutely crazy co-workers. Most of the co-workers are friendly, but there are a few real nutjobs. One easy fix, would be random drug testing. My boss screamed at me for not correcting her errors fast enough? I heard she makes my replacement cry on a regular basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drug testing! As much as I would dislike peeing into a cup, it would be worth it to get rid of some of the employees. Fix the accounting systems and process!

    I have been working at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance - clock in 9 clock out 6
    Work is not very hard - mostly template filling type jobs
    Not too stressful - little accountability
    Easy to impress - do anything above average work.....people are impressed....

    Cons

    No diversity - white, male, above the age of 40....anyone else.....expect a triple paned glass ceiling
    Hyper-political - WB "claims" to be a kinder, gentler studio - not the case. Intrigue, backstabbing, across ALL levels.
    Don't expect to learn much
    If you are smart, prepared to have your ideas marginalized or stolen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you think it makes sense for strategy for a group of white, men, 40+ to be setting strategy/product direction for a world that is consuming your product digitally?

    There are VPs in the organization who barely show up to work, steal other people's work and pass it off as their own, know embarrassingly little about new media, and are general liabilities to the company - not addressing people/issues and tolerating this behavior is a reflection of Senior Management. It says that you condone this behavior and that getting ahead in this company has little to do with merit.....

    There is so much potential.......but cleaning house is imperative.....otherwise you are just building on a "house of cards". People are not loyal to you or your company because of this........

    I worked at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people doing smart things; it's a big company, with an entrepreneurial spirit. Despite the frustrations of many levels of approval to get things done, ultimately they always do the right thing.

    Cons

    Can be frustrating due to many levels of approval to get something done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down the decision barriers to move more quickly.
