    Pros

    Steady work environment to gain experience with a good company name to be attached to your resume. The offices and company lot are interesting and good.

    Cons

    Pay is is on the lower end and benefits were steadily decreasing in value. Work can become monotonous and there is not much opportunity to learn new things within departments.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Invest in growth of employees

    Pros

    Great at formulating and directing campaigns that work.

    Cons

    Not really risk takers when it comes to media campaigns; more formulaic than anything...fomulas have worked for the most part over the years.

    Pros

    The culture is great at Warner Bros.! Everybody is so willing to help you out and talk to you (even across departments), which made for a very positive internship experience for me. Also, the internship program is well-structured, which is another plus. Interns are invited to movie screenings, panels, and other events, and these were fun to attend. I also enjoyed meeting the other interns. In the summer, Warner Bros. has a lot of interns and being able to bond with these people this truly added to the experience.

    Cons

    New opportunities within company are currently limited. Also, some departments did not have much for their interns to do (I didn't experience this, however).

    Great benefits and vacation. Work life balance and flexible schedule

    Advice to Management

    Too many Vice Precidents who do nothing.
