    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.

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

    Pros

    Life Balance - ok. People (depending on department) fun, nice and generally good. Salary - ok. Perks - ok.

    Cons

    Senior Management - concerned with bottom line and protecting their jobs. Poor communication. Punitive hostile behavior from some VP's and above. Culture - not great. Morale - poor. Promotions - forget it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would leave some advice, but I know they won't read it. And because one of the biggest issues is lack of communication. why bother.

    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.

    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!

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

    Pros

    Work life balance - clock in 9 clock out 6
    Work is not very hard - mostly template filling type jobs
    Not too stressful - little accountability
    Easy to impress - do anything above average work.....people are impressed....

    Cons

    No diversity - white, male, above the age of 40....anyone else.....expect a triple paned glass ceiling
    Hyper-political - WB "claims" to be a kinder, gentler studio - not the case. Intrigue, backstabbing, across ALL levels.
    Don't expect to learn much
    If you are smart, prepared to have your ideas marginalized or stolen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you think it makes sense for strategy for a group of white, men, 40+ to be setting strategy/product direction for a world that is consuming your product digitally?

    There are VPs in the organization who barely show up to work, steal other people's work and pass it off as their own, know embarrassingly little about new media, and are general liabilities to the company - not addressing people/issues and tolerating this behavior is a reflection of Senior Management. It says that you condone this behavior and that getting ahead in this company has little to do with merit.....

    There is so much potential.......but cleaning house is imperative.....otherwise you are just building on a "house of cards". People are not loyal to you or your company because of this........
