    Pros

    Warner Bros. is always pushing the envelope by extending into new and untested areas of content development and distribution. This means employees have the opportunity to work on exciting, first-to-market projects giving them opportunity to build the future of entertainment. WB employees are forward thinking and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to move internally.
