Manager Financial Planning & Analysis (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – June 5, 2018
Campus style work environment .Diverse eating places. Not much opportunity for advancement. Company is in restructuring environment. Most enjoyable part of the work is knowing you are making a contribution
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – May 12, 2018
While I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Warner Bros., there was not a tremendous amount of concern for the "individual" employee. Obviously, as a publicly traded company, the corporate and public concerns were paramount to the concerns for any one individual. However, the uncertainty (and pervasiveness) on potential upcoming layoffs (on a grand scale) eas a constant concern. On the upside, being involved in being around, and working with, cutting age technology was a HUGEly positive experience, As with, on a more human level, the camaraderie involved in being part of a large (although somewhat insular) company.
Short (and terse) notification when layoffs approached
Research Editor (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 9, 2018
I enjoy working for Warner Bros. I found the job initially on Craigslist and was able to begin networking within the company. I have found a good network of people who are passionate about the work they do.
HR Coordinator (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – March 27, 2018
*Since I worked in the Sales department, the pace was faster and high stress. *The culture itself had improved since the hiring of a new President for that particular department. *The most challenging in my previous position was the unpredictability of my day-to-day schedule and coordinating with local and international personnel for meetings and conferences. *The most rewarding is when these meetings, conferences or any projects run smoothly and without consequences.

Senior Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) – Burbank, CA – March 12, 2018
Most people at Warner Bros are overworked and juggling multiple initiatives at the same time, which leads to low quality and frustration. The company has a lot of legacy, many levels of management, and a lot of ineffective processes.
Second Cook (Current Employee) – Burbank, CA – February 26, 2018
it is not the best place to work. Highly stressful compared to most places I have worked. too much drama and management has zero communication to others. For the pay you get I would not recommend this job to anyone
Clerk Floater (Current Employee) – Burbank, CA – February 20, 2018
I work in the tours department which is fun. The uniforms are terrible, but they are really flexible with my hours. We don't get any real benefits, and the union doesn't do much. But I love walking on the lot and using the WB gym! It is a bit pricey, and some of the employees come straight out of high school. Other employees act like they're still in high school.
Stunt Double (Former Employee) – Universal City, CA – February 13, 2018
I loved working with this company because of the overall environment. They are understanding of your needs and help you get the job done! The most enjoyable part is the staff is easy to get along with and the FREE FOOD!!
Senior Traffic/Lineup Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 3, 2018
Working for WB Media Sales is great. Friendly workplace with great colleagues and managers. The office itself is great but will be relocating in the future. The job has it's ups and downs as you progress through the year. My only concern is career advancement. It is very hard to climb the corporate ladder.
Lead (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 1, 2018
Warner Bros owns subsidiary companies. It made a deal to sell one of them and employees were caught up in the sale as part of WB's technical reorganization. Up until that time, they were a great company to work for. Some say the subsidiary is shuttering its doors soon after the sale, after being in business for over 30 years, and under new owners let most everyone go at a fraction of the severance WB would have offered.
Before the transition, company management was great, save for one or two who kept the situation close to the vest. In this particular subsidiary, promotions were subject to favoritism, but the day-to-day work was fun, professional and quality.
Everyday workplace was pleasant
High-ups politics occasionally got in the way of smooth workplace operations and promotion, and led to the downfall of a subsidiary
