    I worked at Warner Bros. (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck. Most of the employees are great people.

    Cons

    WB puts up with a lot from some of the more difficult Execs. Instead of placating and pacifying difficult people they should be addressing common courtesy and treating others with mutual respect.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little more time learning about your employees.
