    Great product, good people, lots of politics

    Vice President (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsBest television and film product around
    Job opportunities and job growth are offered to outstanding employees
    Emphasis on career development and leadership growth

    ConsPolitics, politics, politics.
    Sharks are not plentiful but they still exist - watch your back
    Business units are encouraged to duke it out for supremacy instead of working together for the overall corporate good

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the interdepartmental fighting and the "hands off, this is mine" attitude that stifles cooperation, innovation and potential greater revenue growth for the company as a whole.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Inspiring, fun and dynamic!

    ProsI really enjoyed my time at WB. The work/life balance was great and it was not bureaucratic at all which was refreshing coming from a larger corporate. People were generally pleasant, driven and at the top of their game. I was given good opportunities to develop and progress in my role. The fringe benefits were great if you like entertainment such as pre-screenings, DVD library at work, free DVDs on an occasional basis etc. I also got to work across the Time Warner group which was very exciting. A very friendly atmosphere if you fit in.

    Cons- Stark contrast in terms of behaviour of departments (e.g. theatrical vs TV)
    - Slightly lower pay than other companies, but better holidays and shorter Friday hours during the summer period.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsMedia Company, recognition of brand of WB

    ConsNo career planning, manager that are being promoted on basis of year worked and not competence, divivsion that don't talk to each other/

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake an example of a career driven company like Disney, GE, Microsoft etc and train your people to be accountable, not hide their head in the sand
