    I worked at Warner Bros. (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Intern culture, really well organised and inclusive
    Great work-life balance
    Very collaborative, everyone pitches in and a lot of support for all members of staff

    Cons

    Everyone is massively into films and TV, which comes with the territory but wasn't completely the right culture fit for me (hardly a negative to be honest)

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting and supporting interns like you are

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, relaxed atmosphere, Summer hours, screenings, consumer products sales

    Cons

    Most people have strange behavior. One day you get "good morning" and the next day you get a grunt. People tend to bring their personal troubles into the office and are not sure how to be professional. Some people have also been here too long and need to move on and see what it's like to work in the real world as they have become complacent/

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyal staff

    I worked at Warner Bros. (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good location, friendly people and the occasional free DVD

    The departments ran very independently and felt disconnected at times. Little value placed on core departments that provide the service to keep the business running

    Reporting/approval lines could be improved

    I have been working at Warner Bros. (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have good perks, good salaries and in comparison to other media companies and they do listen to their employees.

    Cons

    Not a great sense of teamwork, a lot of politics (which gets in the way of them listening to employees) and in certain depts very hard opportunities of growth.
    Teams are still very much silo'd and you can't share information and knowledge in a positive way, so learning outside of your daily job is very limited.
    There is also a lot of resources/implants which affect the culture in departments. It's hard to play for the WB team where they are not the ones who pay your salary and there is a major segregation between employees and implants/resources.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the implant/resources current situation, they are probably the reason why the culture will never change too drastically.
    Offer more support and growth to the teams and be more transparent and less political. It's hard to built a transparent culture when there is so much politics engrained in departments. It is also hard to feel motivated to work when you are not getting raise/promotion but you are asked to celebrate the profits of the company.

    Pros

    Bright people, smart executives, more than average pay. Good benefits especially pension package. Flexible working hours and good work life balance.

    Cons

    Time to time I got calls from linkedin with better pay. Every 3-4 years there is a restructuring so job security is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good review

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time

    Pros

    - Generally great product
    - Smart, driven people
    - Good compensation
    - Depending on position, there tend to be good perks and opportunities to progress

    Cons

    - The pressure put on staff can occasionally appear to be too extreme
    - Regular restructuring means that there is a degree of uncertainty over job security

    Advice to Management

    It's been a winning formula for almost a century, but there is s nagging doubt that there are too many chiefs making decision making slow.
