    Pros

    Great colleagues, even more amazing and friendly VPs, growth and mobility, free movie passes, free merch, paid lunches and dinners, great benefits, free WB Tours for friends and family, work life balance, annual 1-3% raises, yearly bonuses, your opinions are valued, and much more.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours especially during holiday season, under staffed, you must wear multiple hats, sometimes you have to cross train yourself to get things done, constant lay offs almost every 2 years.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work with some of the most creative and smartest people in entertainment

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay and benefits, no opportunities for promotion unless you leave, executives are more interested in their stock and big salaries then doing any work. Growth is SLOW and the company's best times are behind it.

    Former Employee, more than 3 years

    Great perks, long hours, no work life balance

    Feb 4, 2019 - Ecommerce Merchandiser in Burbank, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    GREAT PERKS: free clothes, costumes, phone cases, toys, comic books, CDs, DVDs, movie tickets, free screenings while working, seeing all the cool things being made before it comes out, tickets to comic con, toy fair, amazing kitchen with snacks, great custodial cleaners, amazing friendly welcoming colleagues. GREAT BENEFITS & BONUSES: good dental, medical, vision. Good end of the year bonuses and 1.5-3% raises every year. PROMOTIONS: you can move up pretty fast within the company. GREAT BOSSES: VPs, EVPs, and SVPs, are kind, approachable, flexible, and open minded. They listen to our concerns, ideas, and strategies and sometimes implement them. It's the management above them that is problematic. GREAT COLLEAGUES: they are patient, friendly, and train you well. It's an environment where you're not thrown into the fire and it's okay to make a mistake without getting your head bitten off or being scolded. It promotes teamwork and growth.

    Cons

    NO WORK LIFE BALANCE: Long hours, sometimes 10-12 hours, sometimes later. You work on your vacation days as people call or email you. LAYOFFS: too many lay off at the bottom. Layoffs happen every year and half to two years. THE RESULT: It demoralizes the team and changes the dynamic in the office. Everyone is always on edge. We are now understaff and overworked since there is less people.
