    I worked at Warner Bros. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working on a movie studio
    Nice coworkers
    Not much more, but I had to write at least 20 words. Seriously this job was pretty awful. It looks nice on the outside, but you will be told even by management that you will get stuck.

    Cons

    Forced to be union with no benefits
    Terrible pay
    No guarantee of job past seasonal hire
    No room for growth
    Extremely strict policies

    Advice to Management

    Create an actual program that allows workers to work their way around the lot.

    I have been working at Warner Bros. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance
    - Depending on the division in which you work, many colleagues become like family
    - Excellent pay, benefits
    - Believes in giving back to the community

    Cons

    - Each division works within its own silo so there are missed opportunities when it comes to synergy across the divisions and cost savings
    - Many executives stay for decades and so upward movement is rare
    - The studio is still antiquated when it comes to technology and most of its technology is outsourced which hurts when there are immediate problems that require solving or when you are trying to do simple things like a video conference.

    Ok it is fine for the big name to come in to to the job. it is close to home so it is fine but this place is bad.

    Cons

    They are bad at there jobs in management. . They could not run anything well. they do not know a thing about the real world. they need a kick up in reality. no wonder the place is losing money.
