    I worked at Warner Bros. Records full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fun co-workers, you get to work in music, lots of connections, free music, shows and coffee

    Cons

    Long hours (no joke), it's in the Valley, low pay for entry-level, some employees are seriously incompetent or have majorly inflated egos, interns are depended upon a bit too much, lots of employee turnaround, low morale at times, budget cuts, cliquey politics, very competitive for the few mid-level jobs that are left

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees

    I worked at Warner Bros. Records as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot of office aspects and how the CEO conducted record deals. Very busy at times and not so busy. Met many artists that came in to sample their work or current signed artists as well.

    Cons

    Didn't meet many people in other departments. Ran out of work and was bored at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunities outside of work. Talk more about the business and less about who you love

    I worked at Warner Bros. Records as an intern (less than an 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

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Warner Bros. Records as an intern (less than an 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 (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.
