    I have been working at HBO full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some great people still around. Work-life balance is OK, but depends entirely on your manager - so if you get a workaholic, you're screwed. Time off is generous, usually 4 weeks plus extra one at Christmas though rumors abound that extra week will soon be cut. Training and tuition reimbursement offered is very generous, but problem is there is little time to avail of this great benefit.

    Cons

    The once great group, now called Digital Products, has been in decline since about 2012. Change had been desperately needed, but change we got is toxic and lacking unity, direction and clarity. Culture is now unfriendly and full of back stabbing done with a smile.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management in Digital Products is very insincere and divisive. They tout feel good initiatives like transparency, upward mobility based on performance, and "happy and healthy" teams. But there's no genuine attention to any of this lip service. Richard Plepler (great CEO), please wake up and bring back our old awesome mojo. It's sorely lacking.

    I have been working at HBO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company culture (before it was changed to AT&T), work-life balance, good 401K with matching, benefits are fine. 15 vacation days, 2 personal days, unlimited sick days.

    Cons

    Changes within the company and MASSIVE layoffs unfortunately. The company will never be the same and not sure what is to come.
