The absolute BEST place for mediocrity

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time for more than a year

ProsWork life balance - clock in 9 clock out 6
Work is not very hard - mostly template filling type jobs
Not too stressful - little accountability
Easy to impress - do anything above average work.....people are impressed....

ConsNo diversity - white, male, above the age of 40....anyone else.....expect a triple paned glass ceiling
Hyper-political - WB "claims" to be a kinder, gentler studio - not the case. Intrigue, backstabbing, across ALL levels.
Don't expect to learn much
If you are smart, prepared to have your ideas marginalized or stolen

Advice to Senior ManagementDo you think it makes sense for strategy for a group of white, men, 40+ to be setting strategy/product direction for a world that is consuming your product digitally?

There are VPs in the organization who barely show up to work, steal other people's work and pass it off as their own, know embarrassingly little about new media, and are general liabilities to the company - not addressing people/issues and tolerating this behavior is a reflection of Senior Management. It says that you condone this behavior and that getting ahead in this company has little to do with merit.....

There is so much potential.......but cleaning house is imperative.....otherwise you are just building on a "house of cards". People are not loyal to you or your company because of this........

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fantastic Company to work for!

EVP (Former Employee)
Burbank, CA (US)

I worked at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSmart people doing smart things; it's a big company, with an entrepreneurial spirit. Despite the frustrations of many levels of approval to get things done, ultimately they always do the right thing.

ConsCan be frustrating due to many levels of approval to get something done.

Advice to Senior ManagementBreak down the decision barriers to move more quickly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

There isn't much work life balance as management.

THINGS ARE A CHANGIN'

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Burbank, CA (US)

I have been working at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time for more than 10 years

ProsDepending on your group and your boss, the environment can be fun and supportive. Pay is decent, benefits, sick and vacation time are good.

ConsLand grabbing, a growing political environment and favoritism emanates from the walls in the creative groups. Changes happen all the time, but some decisions are indescribably ignorant. New Senior Management of the Studio was a poor decision. One of the leaders has no place having that position. Trickle down affect.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen and engage in dialogue with your staff, instead of opting for arguments. Management has so much on their plate, they forget conversations, they get impatient and grumpy.

Good company, shaky industry

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment full-time
