    A great place to work.

    Director Finance (Current Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsGood work environment with top notch employees.

    ConsWB is a great place to work but ultimately the personality of your boss plays a big role in your experience with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove employees around. Once an employee spends 3-4 years in a position, he needs to move, even if it is just a lateral move, to keep growing.

    Everything you would expect working at a massive studio.

    Writer (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsTHe best thing about Warner Brothers Entertainment was receiving one of their branded checks when the contract was over.

    ConsWarner Brothers will work you as hard as you let them and if that is not good enough they will find someone to replace you that day.

    Not thrilling, but best work environment I've ever had

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsGreat people, Excellent company food, benefits. This was the best job I have ever worked in terms of day to day. The work was not very exciting, but the fringe benefits of being part of this studio are numerous. My boss was absolutely excellent, the other members of my team were incredibly supportive, and the whole Digital team was outstanding from a camaraderie perspective. I have a fond place in my heart for these folks, and if I was going to work behind a desk again, this would be my yardstick.

    ConsWorking behind a desk, constantly changing requirements, difficulty in measuring performance.

    Great working on the lot with some nice perks

    Human Resources Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsThere were some great perks to working for the company such as merchandise, movie screenings, farmer's market on the lot, etc.

    ConsIt was such a large company that it was quite difficult meeting other people. Lots of egos to cater to for such little pay. At least at an entry level stand point.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSince I was at an entry level position, I barely received any training and was expected to know how to work under the manager before receiving any instruction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a bad company to work for...

    Senior Administrator (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsBenefits are okay. Amenities are nice, the burbank studio lot is great. Depending on the position, there is a lot you can take control of and that felt rewarding.

    ConsAt the end of the day, you are just a number. Pay is below average. It did seem that even though the initiative I took was appreciated, I never got much in the way of a raise. They will keep you in your position for as long as they can, not much room for growth.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
