    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. The company gave you independence in your work and cared about your personal and professional growth. The work environment was good and the work challenging. The company gave you flexible hours which made it easier commuting around traffic.

    Cons

    You are part of a big company and its focus is not necessarily on your group or division. This means that your project is sometimes struggling for funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An enhanced training program for both artistic and technical would be of great benefit to its workers and the studio.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Getting up close to film industry and meeting people from around the world.

    Cons

    Lots of immature (young), unprofessional employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have varied ages throughout your employees and upper management as to not make older hires feel out of place and offended during break room conversations.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Environment very much like a college campus at Warner Bros Lot in Burbank

    Cons

    Only thing I would say is that the day to day business is very corporate. Luckily, I work on a tv show so we avoid that as much as possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to be the bad guy. Focus on your strength which is having a fun work environment.

    Current Employee - Vice President in Burbank, CA

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Warner Bros. just laid off 1000+ people and I was one of them. Nevertheless, this is a company with great people, solid humans. I hace never worked at a place with folks who are as decent and genuinely care about each other. Sure, there are exceptions to this, as there are at any large company; however, this is about as 'humane' a company as exists. Spectacular benefits and more often than not, interesting projects to work on. Generally speaking, promotes from within.

    Cons

    Like any large bureaucracy, very difficult to gets decisions made in a timely manner. Layers and layers of process. Not terribly different than any other large org. Difficult to move up within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully embrace the digital era - make more investments in web-era programmers.

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good and competitive as far as studios go
    Work life balance great in my dept, but not necessarily the norm at the studios
    If you're in the right group, it's great working for people who care about their work

    Cons

    Time off policy is very good. I can't recall ever being denied.
    In the accounting group, you often have to work while the studio is shut down during the holidays
    Not a lot of growth opportunities. Outside hires usually get the nods.
    Recent lay offs. Wish board would stand up to shareholders when they have very talented people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in growth of employees
