    I worked at Warner Bros. Records as an intern

    Pros

    Great environment and building is filled with music history, great roster of talent, relaxed atmosphere. Summer Sessions concerts in the summer. Office is dog-friendly and decorated well.

    Cons

    It would be busy sometimes and slow other times, depending on release schedules, time of year, time of week. As always as an intern, take initiative and ask to help on more projects.

    I worked at Warner Bros. Records as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great brand name, creative environment. Being able to but wb on your resume is a huge perk, but the experience isn't really anything impresive. Interns are there to do the very bottom-level work, without being taught or fostered to grow.

    Cons

    Shtutle interns through, large company, The hours are typical 9-6 which makes the culture seem like everyon eis just waiting to leave the office. Also, the different departments aren't connected. Could work on more team -building environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to make the environment less corporate.

    I worked at Warner Bros. Records as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The environment was casual and friendly. Employees were very welcoming and open to helping. I had two supervisors, both who were amazing. I had several personal issues arise during my internship, but they were very understanding. While I was there, several new albums were being released, so it was exciting to see the behind-the-scenes. Overall, it was a very positive experience. WBR has some amazing artists so it was great to be able to be a part of the company.

    Cons

    There were some moments when it got slow.

    I worked at Warner Bros. Records full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing group of people who all taught me a thing or two. Working with such passionate people made me appreciate my job more.

    Cons

    Long hours and the human resource department rarely ever did their job. Upper level management had a tendency to not communicate important information about an artist which often lead to unproductive meetings and artists feeling that no one was knowledgeable to handle their album release.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I highly suggest improving the human resources department and their practices as well as developing a more rewarding intern program.

    Pros

    Supervisors and HR really want the best for you and provide all the resources for you to succeed.

    Summer interns have access to WBR Summer Sessions (signed bands play a free concert for current employees, open bar, catered food).

    Cons

    I would best describe the internship as sporadic - it would get very busy at certain times of the week but was slow for the majority of the time. I had to push myself everyday to stay proactive and find something to do.

    Seemed like there was a lot of politics.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. Records full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you love rock music, passionate people, and chaos, this is the best place to work. If you need to chart your own path, the chaos works in your favor. There is a real focus on artist development, at least for the rock acts. And there is no friendlier place for rock artists and the people who want to build their careers working with them.

    Cons

    If you hate internal processes that are stuck in the 20th century, then this is the worst place to work. If your expertise (on the marketing or A&R side) is in pop or urban music, the company tends to be less decisive, and you will need to fight harder to get what you need and to persuade the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation, compensation, compensation.
