    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the benefits are good - medical, dental, vision, prescription, 401K contributions, vacation, etc.

    Cons

    The company is large and very old school. Some of the systems used are old and inefficient, there could be better efficiencies if the different groups worked together, promotions are hard to come by.

    Pros

    Fun at times, cool environment.

    Care more about your team.

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting media environment
    Great physical location

    Cons

    Due to pending sale to AT&T, the Labor Department is finding any infraction to terminated at will and call it "for cause". Multiple departments freaking out and backstabbing each other to save their own jobs.

    Advice to Management

    enjoy watching the five investors (3 of them Asian bankers) tear the place apart once the deal is inked.

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time

    Pros

    Promotional opportunities do exist, but they can be difficult to come by. Take the review period seriously. Working on the lot is an awesome perk, working in Entertainment adds fun to the experience, certain divisions have great management and training.

    Cons

    You will be confused by some of the promotions that take place, you'll most likely face layoff rumors or actual layoffs at some point, certain divisions can be very corporate, and some managers do not have sufficient skills to handle managing employees

    Advice to Management

    Divisions definitely have different management styles. Trust your employees to do their work, acknowledge their successes, support employees in mistakes as much as in success
