    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Everyone knows Warner Bros. Pictures releases some of the highest-grossing box office films to this day, and they have the corporate infrastructure that you'd expect to support it. If you start as an assistant, the upward mobility is straightforward if you put in the time (years) and effort (overtime). At the lower levels, there is a lot of camaraderie despite the competition, not to mention you get access to the best lot in Hollywood (Burbank), the Batpod and the incredible talent that walks its halls.

    Cons

    The culture is extremely high stress with zero work-life balance. Your job is your life, and you need to dress the part and talk the talk at all times. While some of the older employees are wonderful and compassionate mentors, others are terrified about job security and excessively political. When the top executives change, so does the workflow and culture beneath them, to the detriment of some people who have been building careers there for years. Who knows what will happen with the AT&T merger...

    Pros

    Great place for those with an entrepreneurial spirit creative approach to business. Family environment with supportive teams make this a great place to start and grow you’re career.

    Cons

    Career advancement takes time and depends greatly on which department you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the envelope! Don’t settle for mediocrity. Also, consider paying closer to market.

    Pros

    Great Perks and family oriented

    Cons

    Moved to a new area and I have witnessed that people of the same race tend to stick together. Sad to see that racial discrimination is still around and in such a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees that are not within upper management.
