    I have been working at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Warner Bros. produces great content, is an industry leader in home entertainment, and is more innovative than other studios with exploring new initiatives; you would be proud to be a part of it.
    -Not an overly corporate atmosphere where you are micromanaged
    -A lot of great, smart people work here
    -Some people are paid well compared to other places; but it depends

    Cons

    -The Home Entertainment group consists of home video, digital, and interactive... the distribution of individual resources given to each of these subsets is wildly imbalanced, and frankly, makes little rational sense considering trends, numbers, expectations, etc.
    -Strong sense of competitiveness between different groups; there isn't a natural tendency to collaborate and share, it's like a fake niceness when they see the others as a threat or someone who could potentially put you out of a job
    -A lot of the hardest workers (with the best experience/education) are perpetual contractors that are overworked and underpaid with little to no longterm career prospects - regardless of how well they perform. There seems to be more and more emphasis on cheap labor, which is not a smart way to run the business in the longterm because outside of a bad economy, you give valuable team members absolutely NO motivation to stay... which then makes the team suffer in regards to constant turnover and no one left that is aware of how to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Reward good work, not politics. Pay attention to what is best for where the company/industry is headed.
