    Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has always been a great company to work for, but times maybe changing

    I have been working at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    WBHE has always been considerate of work-life balance, although it may vary depending on your supervisor. The benefits are fair and the pay is decent. There is enjoyment in working for the leading entertainment company in Hollywood.

    Cons

    WIth the physical home entertainment category on the decline, the work environment has changed. Decisions seem more based on personal gain than driving success of the company objectives. Lots of heirarchy and approvals required to get things done. The bonus program is also a little on the light side in comparison with others.

    Pros

    Most of the people who work there are really smart and nice.

    Cons

    There is no rhyme or reason for how they promote people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you are laying people off you may want to lay off some of the chiefs and keep a few Indians. Very top heavy organization and not enough support staff.

    Limited room for advancement depending on the area you are in. More emphasis on training and development of talent is needed.

    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!

    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.

    Marketing and people in management are not the most clever people.

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

    Pros

    Depending on your group and your boss, the environment can be fun and supportive. Pay is decent, benefits, sick and vacation time are good.

    Cons

    Land grabbing, a growing political environment and favoritism emanates from the walls in the creative groups. Changes happen all the time, but some decisions are indescribably ignorant. New Senior Management of the Studio was a poor decision. One of the leaders has no place having that position. Trickle down affect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and engage in dialogue with your staff, instead of opting for arguments. Management has so much on their plate, they forget conversations, they get impatient and grumpy.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are really good: health care, life insurance,

    You get to see early screenings of movies.

    You have easy access to enter/leave the Warner Brother's lot. It's not uncommon to see movie stars or filming during my lunch break.

    The cafeteria is cheap and tasty.

    Overall, it's a nice culture.

    Cons

    The pay is low compared with other companies.

    Upward movement seems happen very slowly

    I have been working at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    No Pros. I was a contractor and even though we put in lot of hours working hard, there was no praise or support given. Worst. Worst client to work for.

    Cons

    Worse client I ever worked with.
    Long hours.
    No praise or help or support.
    Expectation is like crazy. They expect people to work 24 hours.
    They don't know what to work on and then expect people to deliver on time. First they should clear what they really want and where they want to go with a project and should have real world expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should try to stay real world. People are not their slaves and don't just work for them. They have personal lives too.
