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

    Pros

    My team has been very supportive of my growth and development - I'm on my 3rd permanent role and have also had the opportunity to rotate into another role to cover a leave of absence. It's also a lot of fun to be surrounded by a creative environment even though I'm not in a creative function.

    Cons

    Our team is small for the large scope of our responsibilities.

    Pros

    Benefits, Volunteer Opportunities, Matching Donations, Business Resource Groups, Employee Screenings, E-learning and in person classes, discounts, access to executives via panel and networking activities, opportunity for mobility within the organization. It's an exciting environment where no two days are the same!

    Cons

    Certain areas can be slower to change than others, but the effort is definitely noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to survey the employee population to foster engagement and a positive environment with ongoing change.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time

    Pros

    The ability to have flexible work arrangements has been awesome. The culture is shifting to be more agile in how work gets done instead of where. Business Resource Groups, WB Learning courses and Recruitment led activities have been great employee resources to take advantage of.

    Cons

    There can sometimes be too many layers of buy-in to get things approved. This can slow down decision-making and project progression.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are talented, driven and passionate about their work. The films are varied and fill the calendar year - so you’re never bored!

    Cons

    The culture is going through some major shifts. The organization is a bit rocky and there is constant overlap of job duties - “who’s doing what” type mentality

    Advice to Management

    Decision making and leadership is key.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have found this company to be a place where collaboration is valued, colleagues become friends, and your career passions and growth are supported.

    Cons

    Too much collaboration can be a bad thing. The ability to move quickly and efficiently without needing to build consensus all the time must also be valued.

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

    Pros

    Professional - Internal Mobility (employees being able show interest in other WB career opportunities and openness in being considered for those opportunities and obtaining them), Growth Opportunities, Flexible Work Arrangements, WB Lot Access, Company Culture.

    Personal - The most important thing to me in choosing and staying with a company is the people I work closely with and I really love the team I am a part of and I feel that management is personally/professionally invested in me as a WB Employee.

    Cons

    Pros outweigh the Cons. For my specific division, we run lean, but when we need the help/assistance, I feel like I can always count on the team.

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

    Pros

    Fast-paced, meaningful work, great client relationships, lots of career and rotational opportunities. The company offers tuition reimbursement for relevant courses, training opportunities and opportunities to move around and up within the company. Amazing to work on a lot with all the perks that come with that - movie screenings, merchandise discounts, sneak peaks at new events and initiatives.

    Cons

    None that come to mind

    Advice to Management

    Keep nurturing employees from within and offer advancement opportunities to learn and grow.

    Pros

    High sense of community and genuine passion for the history, IP and work product. Very collaborative environment filled with sincerely kind people. Very good work/life balance with flexible work arrangement availability. Leader in the industry as a whole, but also in each of its individual businesses (Pictures, TV, Video Games, Consumer Products, Digital Content, etc.) Company is very supportive of internal mobility and diversity. Employees voices are heard and action is taken.

    Cons

    Collaboration is a great thing, but can sometimes impair innovation and decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in diversity, internal mobility and flexibility. Create a more supportive environment for risk taking.

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time

    Pros

    Nearly everyone that worked there, from the top down, were fair and honest in their dealings, and really tried to help each other out.

    Cons

    The hours could be brutal at times, especially during the holiday seasons if you were part of the team that dealt with retailers.
