      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.

      Pros

      Great people to work with & location. Awesome projects to work on. They do a great job of keeping employment steady in a "gig" economy compared to other studios. Pretty good at work/life balance.

      Cons

      Not a ton of perks compared to other studios.

      Pros

      - Love getting to have access to the Warner Bros. lot - Great discounts thru AT&T - People at my level are some of the best I've ever met and worked with

      Cons

      - It's a corporation; change takes FOREVER to happen - Lots of lifers...very little new blood or changeover - Communication is impossible; difficult to get answers, information, instruction, etc. - Difficult work/life balance (because some people give 150% and some people give 2%, but everyone's treated the same) - Say they want to be big/bold/new/different but they don't really

      Exciting place to work!

      Pros

      Great benefits. Plenty of vacation and sick time. Management that supports a work life balance.

      Cons

      Family company mentality makes promotions and business operations move very slowly. Inter-company transfers aren't always easy if you want to move out of your global department (ie: Marketing to Finance, etc)

      Great Company, Poor Management

      May 9, 2019 - Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits, inspiring products and incredible leadership.

      Cons

      Middle managers are terrible. They provide no direct feedback or worklife balance. The expectation is to work to the point of exhaustion. Days off or working from home for work-life balance is a company goal. However not supported by mid-level executives. Which is sad because it really is a great company.

      Pros

      WB is a great place to work, especially for benefits and the fact they are working toward better work life balance. There’s a lot of flexibility and mobility opportunities from the top level down.

      Oldish buildings, some people have egos
