No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great name for your resume. The food in the cafeteria is pretty good. Great project to work on. Down to earth younger staff.

Cons

Inbred hiring. Terrible pay for the freelancers who keep the wheel turning. Not very creative environment. Lot's of arrogant old producers, who think they are celebrities.

Advice to Management

Pay people fair wages. Scrimping on basic supplies is uneccessary. Eliminate some of the red tape as it affects efficiency of process.

    "HBO is all about seniority, not necessarily about talent, leadership or intelligence – very corporate."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you respond well to corporate culture this is a good place to work with great benefits and staff.

    Cons

    Breaking into the company with a staff job can be very difficult for younger people. Trying to get an assistant job (normally entry-level elsewhere) is difficult considering the median age is around 30...career assistants.

    Advice to Management

    look at the youth
