Sad shell of a former great place

A&R (Former Employee)

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

Had to find my own work and stay proactive

Marketing Intern (Former Employee)
Burbank, CA

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

ProsSupervisors 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).

ConsI 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Burbank, CA

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

ProsIf 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.

ConsIf 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.
