    Pros

    Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank was an awesome place to work. A fun, creative environment with a TON of Hollywood history.

    Cons

    The down side with anything in the entertainment industry, the jobs are not always the most stable. When a production goes on hiatus you can find yourself without income for an indefinite amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    My management was alright. Sometimes I had the sense of too many Chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Pros

    Great slate of TV and Theatrical product portfolio. Highly motivated workforce.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Senior management is holding to overpaid jobs. Duplicate effort in multiple business units. Need to revisit corporate structure.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure not through layoffs but through using available assets and merging business units.

    Pros

    I love this place! It's a fun environment among highly qualified resources. Yes, you may see well known people, but better than that, your work is interesting and always changing as the latest best practices are implemented. Benefits are very good and the company will assist with relevant education expenses. Internships are available.

    Cons

    Many employees are more loyal to the company than it is to them. TCO rules. The recent reorganization, resulting in layoffs of hundreds of employees, may have cut too far into the bone.

    Advice to Management

    Balance TCO with valued resources. Do everything you can to reassure retained employees that they will not be the next casualties.
