    I have been working at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, good benefits, decent perks, working on some of the biggest brands, and a fair amount of autonomy. It's the most exciting group at WB

    Cons

    Political, slow moving and not progressive, not a lot of growth opportunities, people are undervalued, and uninspiring leadership. Not a division that's prioritized.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership could be a lot more inspiring and look to find ways to be more in touch with the rest of the division.

    Relax. We're not curing cancer! :)

    Former Employee - Playtest Moderator in Kirkland, WA
    Former Employee - Playtest Moderator in Kirkland, WA

    I worked at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Provides hands on experience for many aspects of user research.
    -Relatively flexible hours when not conducting studies.
    -Good networking opportunities for the video game industry.
    -Constant deadlines and a necessity to get details right makes it good experience for people entering the workforce.

    Cons

    -You will work weekends often during busy seasons.
    -No benefits
    -9 month contract, must wait 3 months to reapply
    -Leadership is not always on the same page, you will be told to do something one way by one person and told that is wrong by another person, makes for good people management practice.
    -Leadership has little patience for mistakes. This is good and bad, you will be frustrated but it will force you to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Iron out your messaging. If you tell incoming moderators that they are encouraged to ask questions and propose alternative ways to simplify processes, then have more patience when they do ask questions and propose ideas. Otherwise, if things need to be done a certain way, just state that.

    Pros

    Company has a lot of money for large projects
    Exposure for working on projects was great

    Cons

    Company does not give out raises and always found excuses to hold bonuses
    Poor management leading to over runs on budget and large layoffs
    Would provide employee's how dollar figures on how much WB as a whole was making but employees wouldn't see any of it.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay and work life balance. The team is fun and full of talent.

    Cons

    Office location in San Francisco is in a very bad neighborhood. You can't leave the office without being surrounded by junkies. Its not uncommon to walk by people smoking crack and shooting up in the middle of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Move office to safer location.
