    Pros

    Nice colleagues, nice work environment

    Cons

    Does not pay the London living wage even though the studio tour is called "Warner Bros Studio Tour London", not enough staff to cover all needs, too many temporary and seasonal staff members

    Advice to Management

    Pay the London Living wage of £8.80 per hour. We know how much money the tour makes and you can certainly afford to pay your staff more.

  3. Great product, good people, lots of politics

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Politics, 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 Management

    Stop 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.

    Pros

    I 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.

    Pros

    Media Company, recognition of brand of WB

    Cons

    No 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 Management

    Take 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
