    "Great work environment not family friendly"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 (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.

    Advice to Management

    As mentioned, the executive team is fantastic. President Diane Nelson is tops, even inspiring. The lower management, while good, are not without their faults. RECOGNITION for work achieved would be a great place to start.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Not all creative companies allow mistreatment of employees by "talented" people. Take it seriously when an employee is trying to do their best and comes to you with issues.

    I worked at DC Comics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, collaborative environment, lots of fun swag, working on comic books.

    Cons

    Upper Executive Team is completely disconnected from the lower level workers. They are great at praising the "great work" everyone does to make the sales numbers go up, yet they have no idea who any of these people are. Personal story: I once spent a company luncheon sitting next to the president of the company, talking and getting to know her. Two months later, she bumped into me, said "Excuse me" and continued walking as if she didn't even know who I was, because I wasn't important enough to remember.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management: Please take a greater interest in the people who are actually supporting your initiatives and grand plans.
