    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Former Employee - Procurement Officer in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time for more than a year

    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.
