    "Awesome people, great office space, cool perks, fun"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at DC Comics full-time

    Pros

    Unlike most larger divisions, you get to see what DC is doing as a whole. You especially get to see a lot of creativity at work firsthand even if you're in a non-creative business role. The office space is an attraction in itself and never fails to impress. You also get cool perks like comics, collectibles, and movies, and they often have fun events and celebrations throughout the year.

    Cons

    Even though DC's IP touches every area of parent WB, the division itself is mainly still a print publishing company within a larger media-focused studio, making it feel siloed from the rest of WB. The building is also off-lot, which doesn't help that. With the exception of a few groups, chances are you'll never have anything to do with the media side, so you need to be passionate about the comic book publishing business to thrive here.

    "Great work environment not family friendly"

    I worked at DC Comics full-time

    Pros

    DC Has gone to a lot of effort to make their employees feel happy and welcome. Company tee shirts, cupcakes on Valentine's Day, flex Fridays during the summer. Company morale is important.

    Cons

    When you get hired at a low salary, you will stay there, with very little upticks. You will need to leave the company to make a career leap. Certain departments are family friendly but some are not.

    I have been working at DC Comics for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a great group of people. Great, great executive team. There's definitely a sense of family here, should you choose to join in. Benefits are decent as it is part of Time Warner.

    Cons

    There aren't too many down sides but getting promoted is not their forte. It might be because everyone wants to work here, and no one's leaving. Ha! But really, it's tough to advance.

    I worked at DC Comics full-time

    Pros

    The people were pretty great compared to others in the entertainment industry, The Time Warner benefits are fantastic. The CCO and the CEO were very inclusive and it has a family feeling.

    Cons

    The salary was terrible for a large city. The job itself wasn't defined so there was confusion as to responsibilities and management couldn't correct it. There were some difficult personalities that weren't addressed by management.
