I worked at Warner Bros. full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Fantastic, creative people
- Great salary and benefits
- Large corporation, but entertainment industry culture; no need to dress like a banker
- Fabulous events, company-wide and within divisions
- Educational and training opportunities

Cons

- Corporate hierarchy/approval processes often cause delays and stalls
- Nepotism: To get promoted, who you know is far more important than what you know or do
- Some managers have zero loyalty to their teams, are more interested in self-preservation
- HR reps not always completely honest

    Pros

    Meet lots of creative people

    Cons

    caste system when it comes to moving up - you can't unless you are friends with the person who needs to hire someone. Even harder for people who are not white.
