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

    Pros

    Creativity, working with many personalities, actors, varied duties, extremely fast-paced and getting along with diverse personalities; from explosive to pussycats!

    Cons

    Extremely long hours, the gamut of exterior locations...I did not like the unreliability of projects available. I missed year round employment. And I dislike L.A!!

    Advice to Management

    I had very little qualms with management. My job is to adapt to whomever I am so closely working with; both intimately (as I their face applying makeup) and to those who are signing my paycheck.
