    I worked at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    I was able to work on some great projects with great people. The benefits were excellent. As a full time employee they offered 40 hours of free day care assistance.

    Cons

    There was really no clear process for promotion. Often the case most individuals would receive a small merit increase (usually 2 -3%). But in terms of promotion, it could take 4-6 years to even receive a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more training programs and provide a more comprehensive tuition reimbursement program.

    While cost savings are necessary, work on bringing back a people-focus, help make work fun again. It has to start with the leaders of each division, department and team.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Never need to work overtime, once the time hits the floor is a ghost town. Good benefits, good company and if you can find a position in another department you will first in-line because you are already an employee.

    Cons

    Dead-end department. Way of managing is old style "Divide and conquer", not really up on the new things that are happening outside of their box, the staff has few new ideas or fresh outlook. But, they are truly exhausted from the lack of leadership and no promise for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate team building events or activities into the group. Make quicker and better decisions that do not have your own agenda/favorite people but are for the entire group. Let people know how they can advance and stop telling them that they will never be promote, nowhere to go from there. Decision making is always passing to another person, then back to the original person. Work on communication.
