Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Employees receive free movie DVDs several times a year and occasional screenings of new movies. Warner Brothers owns a large number of interesting IPs.

Cons

Upper management is excessively risk-averse and short sighted leading to a creatively stagnant environment and frequent layoffs of loyal and talented employees.

Advice to Management

Driving talented and loyal developers away to make your quarterly budgets look good is a shortsighted solution at best.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is fun and challenging. The people are great.

    Cons

    The studio goes through annual layoffs. Sometimes it is more often than that. They layoff people whenever a title is ready to launch. The pay is lower than other nearby studios.

    Advice to Management

    Plan ahead so you have something to do with all these people when a project ends. There is no need to go through massive hires and layoffs every year when a little planning will save you all that time, money, and reputation.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Friendly and approachable executives. Friendly and inclusive co-workers. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Can be a bit of a bureaucracy and the company can be slow moving when it comes to change/improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Relax. We're not curing cancer! :)
