Full of potential, but lacking in adequate resources (in terms of process, people, and direction)

Pros

- Tremendous IP and the potential for leveraging that IP
- A number of very passionate a dedicated people to work with
- Essentially still a "startup" culture with a hefty bankroll
- "Warner Bros." experience can look pretty good on a CV

Cons

- Lack of unifying direction/vision (especially obvious given the geographic separation of the "head office" from everyone else)
- Too little staff to do all the work that needs to be done, and a seeming willingness by the executive team to let this situation continue.
- "Bottom-line" decision making often at odds with creative/creation process
- Current trend of workforce reductions at various development locations

Advice to Management

Unify the entire division, staff critical positions with enough people to get the job done without individuals having to "kill themselves," and setup a culture of "success" versus one that provides a minefield of opportunities for failure.

    Pros

    Although I was only a consultant, the benefits that were offered were great such as, being able to walk onto the studio lot and watch employee screenings.

    Cons

    Very competitive atmosphere, especially for women. Almost a 'do what ever it takes to get to the top' type of atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who know the business, especially in technology.

  2. Great first intern experience
