    Welcome to the WB Family

    TWCAP Intern (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsSince day one my boss made it apparent that I'd be working on important projects for the department. I was never relegated to an errand boy and felt that my work held value in the company. In addition to the interesting responsibilities, my internship program coordinated weekly workshops ranging from resume-writing to conflict management. Outside of the office, interns possessed company perks such as advanced screenings, gift-store discounts, and access to the lot.

    ConsThere were a few problems accessing important documents due to outdated software (MS Office 2003) and poor communication with the IT department.

    Good people and fun environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsGood people, fun environment, diverse population. Good place to spend a few years after an MBA as you'll be doing a lot of heavy lifting - analysis and reporting - for senior management, and so will hone skills and find what areas you can add value.

    ConsLittle upward mobility and almost no opportunities for learning & development. Promotions based on tenure and insider connections, not merit.

    Great people, salary & benefits, but get into the right clique if you want a promotion.

    Web Producer (Former Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    Pros- Fantastic, creative people
    - Great salary and benefits
    - Large corporation, but entertainment industry culture; no need to dress like a banker
    - Fabulous events, company-wide and within divisions
    - Educational and training opportunities

    Cons- Corporate hierarchy/approval processes often cause delays and stalls
    - Nepotism: To get promoted, who you know is far more important than what you know or do
    - Some managers have zero loyalty to their teams, are more interested in self-preservation
    - HR reps not always completely honest

    The work/life balance was great and it was not bureaucratic at all which was refreshing coming from a larger corporate.

    Data Analyst/Data Archive Media (Former Employee)
    Sun Valley, CA

    ProsFun company to work for, some great people work here, and the lot is really well-maintained.

    ConsVery few career advancement opportunities. It's very easy to plateau your career here.

    very limited ability to move around in company

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
    Burbank, CA

    ProsMeet lots of creative people

    Conscaste system when it comes to moving up - you can't unless you are friends with the person who needs to hire someone. Even harder for people who are not white.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
