    I worked at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Fun product, great benefits, exciting business

    Cons

    Somewhat "swimming with sharks" environment. Declining industry, at least from BD/DVD perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone with respect. Great ideas can come from all levels of the organization.

    Make sure you don't forgot about the little guys and make the orientation process standardized within departments.

    Pros

    Some of the senior mangagement had been there for as long as 15 years, so they had years of expertise in one area.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time for more than a 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 for less than a 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.

    • Cannot trust senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In a creative industry like Warner Bros. don’t think of your employees as just work horses that you can squeeze profit out off. You are losing your top and/or discouraging your top talent.
