    Pros

    Great Benefits at full time level, a lot of on campus activities and networking events, people are generally open-minded and willing to network

    Cons

    Mobility between departments is difficult; jobs are scarce because people are there for life

    Advice to Management

    Please consider unorthodox candidates as a way to enrich the character of each department

    Pros

    Depending on what dept you're in, it's a fun, casual environment to work - my dept is a lot of fun. Lots of social/business resource groups to be a part of and network. Employee screenings and many discounts. Great vacation benefits packages with options to choose from. Great 401K plan. They do try to listen to their employees. A charitable organization.

    Cons

    Corporate structure that's all bout the money and overhead. Regular layoff seasons. Employee perks seem to be getting less and less.


  3. Great Workplace

    Pros

    Great workplace with a lot of good products to work on and self-autonomy. Lots of visibility in the work and depending on the team there is a lot of trust in your work.

    Cons

    A few layoffs here and there, but its sometimes necessary for the business. Upward mobility is somewhat of a challenge.

    Pros

    Working with great IP, knowledgable and friendly people. Offices space is very nice and working on the lot is a real perk.

    Cons

    Can be rather corporate at the head office. Getting things done requires a lot of red tape and not as agile as a smaller company might be.

    Pros

    Great company with great benefits. The employees are also very hard-working and dedicated. Summer Fridays.

    Cons

    There is not a clearly delineated career path or opportunity for advancement. After recent layoffs, the employees feel over-worked and under-appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    I wish they would do a better job of evaluating personnel before layoffs. Many good employees were let go while not so good ones were kept.


  7. Great product but tendency to suffer from approval paralysis and a lot of cost cutting in the last few years.

    Pros

    Great content, international travelling, red carpet events.

    Cons

    Company fun by finances and lawyers, frustrating for creative thinkers/entrepreneurs.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the forecasting and invest in training and development. Make some longer terms decisio s.

    Pros

    Market leader. Multidisciplinary jobs across video, video games, consumer products and across distribution with physical & digital retailers. WBHE is in a global transition, offering new opportunities.
    Strong brands

    Cons

    2014 is a record breaking year in terms of results for the French division, however the company is going through a painful reorganisation in which the lay offs will need to be compensated by more efforts as long as our digital business will not be in position to compensate the declining physical markets

    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

    The people for the most part are smart, dedicated, and helpful.

    Cons

    Like with any large organization communication, collaboration, employee development, and vision quest are challenging.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend improving communication and developing an ingrained vision quest characteristic. These should be core values which drive things such a employee development and collaboration to reach the overall mission of the company.
