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

    Pros

    The benefits are really good: health care, life insurance,

    You get to see early screenings of movies.

    You have easy access to enter/leave the Warner Brother's lot. It's not uncommon to see movie stars or filming during my lunch break.

    The cafeteria is cheap and tasty.

    Overall, it's a nice culture.

    Cons

    The pay is low compared with other companies.

    Upward movement seems happen very slowly

    Smart people doing smart things; it's a big company, with an entrepreneurial spirit. Despite the frustrations of many levels of approval to get things done, ultimately they always do the right thing.

    Cons

    Can be frustrating due to many levels of approval to get something done.
