    Pros

    Market leader. Multidisciplinary jobs across video, video games, consumer products and across distribution with physical & digital retailers. WBHE is in a global transition, offering new opportunities.
    Strong brands

    Cons

    2014 is a record breaking year in terms of results for the French division, however the company is going through a painful reorganisation in which the lay offs will need to be compensated by more efforts as long as our digital business will not be in position to compensate the declining physical markets

  2. Great company!

    High studio turn over rate

    Pros

    A household name in entertainment, WBHE is sure to boost any person's resume. Perks include access to surplus DVDs and screenings (provided you are full time and not contract), as well as a great gym, occasional star sightings, and surprisingly okay cafeteria food. They are quite accommodating with personal conflicts, kids, and sick days. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    Prepare for a life of quiet cubicle work. However, if this is something you are accustomed to, this might not even be a con. Although they are fierce to being on the cutting edge of something new and amazing, legal issues and office politics make it impossible to stay current and creative. Office politics in general made the office tense more often than not, and made meetings and interactions with higher ups uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more of an effort to help employees feel like a team instead of competing against each other. I saw this across multiple departments. Maybe fostering a more relaxed environment would increase morale across the board.

    Pros

    WBHE has always been considerate of work-life balance, although it may vary depending on your supervisor. The benefits are fair and the pay is decent. There is enjoyment in working for the leading entertainment company in Hollywood.

    Cons

    WIth the physical home entertainment category on the decline, the work environment has changed. Decisions seem more based on personal gain than driving success of the company objectives. Lots of heirarchy and approvals required to get things done. The bonus program is also a little on the light side in comparison with others.

    Pros

    The people for the most part are smart, dedicated, and helpful.

    Cons

    Like with any large organization communication, collaboration, employee development, and vision quest are challenging.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend improving communication and developing an ingrained vision quest characteristic. These should be core values which drive things such a employee development and collaboration to reach the overall mission of the company.

    Pros

    Life Balance - ok. People (depending on department) fun, nice and generally good. Salary - ok. Perks - ok.

    Cons

    Senior Management - concerned with bottom line and protecting their jobs. Poor communication. Punitive hostile behavior from some VP's and above. Culture - not great. Morale - poor. Promotions - forget it.

    Advice to Management

    I would leave some advice, but I know they won't read it. And because one of the biggest issues is lack of communication. why bother.
