    Former Employee - VIP Tour Support in Burbank, CA

    Pros

    You feel like you're part of the company. The company lives and breathes around you and you feel like you meaningfully contribute to its operations. But...

    Cons

    Management is horrible and incredibly passive aggressive. Some people didn't know they were doing an inadequate job until they got notified that their assignment would not be renewed. That's what happens when you combine improper training with incompetent management. You get people who don't know what they're doing complete with a total unawareness of it. And you're straight up lied to when management says the position is a gateway to other careers at the company. It's not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be frank, honest, and invite feedback. Your numbers may be up but that's because people enjoy the experience of having a great tour. I guarantee you that the majority your guides and support staff are miserable because they feel like they're stuck in the position they're in and they definitely have an ear open as far as their future at the company is concerned.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    A shrinking division of the company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good environment, with lots of perks built in to the workplace. Staff are very smart, highly skilled and professional. Casual workplace focused on results where employees are respected. Union CBA guarantees fair treatment & pay.

    Cons

    Because it's essentially a TV studio, jobs last only as long as the shows run. Since shows are produced overseas, the studio is small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to understand your audiences, and have faith in the shows you produce.
