Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Kirkland, WA
Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Kirkland, WA

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

Pros

Employees receive free movie DVDs several times a year and occasional screenings of new movies. Warner Brothers owns a large number of interesting IPs.

Cons

Upper management is excessively risk-averse and short sighted leading to a creatively stagnant environment and frequent layoffs of loyal and talented employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Driving talented and loyal developers away to make your quarterly budgets look good is a shortsighted solution at best.

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

    Pros

    The work is fun and challenging. The people are great.

    Cons

    The studio goes through annual layoffs. Sometimes it is more often than that. They layoff people whenever a title is ready to launch. The pay is lower than other nearby studios.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan ahead so you have something to do with all these people when a project ends. There is no need to go through massive hires and layoffs every year when a little planning will save you all that time, money, and reputation.

    I worked at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The ambiance is very sweet. Even if there are more employees it still feels like a big family. Employees are respected by the direction. The office is GREAT.

    Cons

    It's a video game studio, expect some crunches. But they are not so bad in this one, really.
