    I have been working at HBO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Smart people. If you are in the right group, good opportunities to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    Some of the new leadership additions are making the environment very political and demoralizing. It is becoming more of chess game of aligning with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    try to look beneath the surface, peel layers and get a pulse of employee morale

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at HBO (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    They sent me a link to hirevue.com
    It would be a virtual interview. Questions would flash on the screen. You have 30 secs to read/ think of your answer, and up to 3 mins to record your response. It was a little weird and awkward because you weren't actually talking to someone, but if you take their practice questions, it should go pretty well.
