    Pros

    I really enjoy the people there. They are smart, approachable and very helpful.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is they don't sponsor H1B visa. It brings lots of hassle for internationals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The compensation, at least for business departments(not creative side), is not very competitive.

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large operation with many projects.
    Warner Bros Studio lot is a highlight with constant filming activities and nice cafeteria

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn/grow/develop/contribute...one is challenged to meet and exceed his/her potential...ever-evolving landscape to meet dynamic organizational and business needs, never boring...good comeraderie within department teams and across functions...hard work is generally appreciated and recognized...ability to think "outside the box" and take measured risks without crippling repercussion...true "family" culture...most stable studio environment within Entertainment industry

    Cons

    Sometimes studio politics can hamper logic...some long-tenured employees possess an unfounded "sense of entitlement", at all levels...at times, over arching studio projects collide due to lack of resources
