    Pros

    Located near the station...?! There really isn't anything "Pro" about working here unfortunately.

    Cons

    Every breathing moment working in the International TV team at WB makes you want to guzzle drain un-blocker rather than be in the office. The environment is stale and the people are putrid. There is no sense of "team" unless you are VP of some made up department, which I guess comes with the added bonus of other "VPs" standing around stroking each others egos while dumping on less senior members of staff from a great height. Work here if you want a stunted career, which yes can last for over a decade in the same role (always good to have ambition...) but offers zero capacity for progression. The stench of depression drowned in narcissism is overwhelming thanks to the hierarchy here and while those of you who are reading this may think "I can navigate my way around it... let me apply for a job there anyway.... it will look great on my CV!" Read to the end and then read this again. Don't demean yourself and your worth for a company that refuse to accommodate flexible working, or decent maternity packages. For a company that actively hires next to no people of colour in roles that have an impact, or hire those with disabilities. For a company whose HR department talk horrendously about new starters and potential candidates openly and claim it's a "joke", a company that fires people on the spot when they are temps because they can't be bothered to train them aka. Do their jobs as managers. The list is endless. You have "senior" managers who are grotesquely lazy and sit in jobs for decades whilst obviously refusing to manage their teams aka. Teams of no more than 3 people that they don't communicate with as it appears to burn their inflated sense of self to a crisp if they have to whisper "good morning" let alone any other pleasantries. Instead, the acclaimed "managers" and "VPs" prefer to cling on to their glorified titles and stomp on those who they deem could threaten their position at the top while brown nosing other "seniors"/ "VPs" within an inch of their lives. They frequently hire new staff, provide next to no support or training, actively overwork and under thank them to ensure they're substantially miserable enough to then exit company of their own accord or better yet, dismiss them in times in earshot of other staff members. This company and department in particular is brimming with spineless, pathetic people and serves as a toxic wasteland where career fulfilment grinds to a halt and fizzles into oblivion. Unless you fit the criteria above or enjoy feeling miserable enough to warrant the urge to drink your own vomit as opposed to being at your desk, apply elsewhere.

    I worked at Warner Bros. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good experience if you're good at learning things on your own as your managers will think they're too important to even try to help you. - Looks great on your CV - Consumer Good sales are OK - Screening content

    Cons

    - Highly hierarchical. It will make you feel like you're in an episode of Mad Men minus the cigarettes. - Managers are not actual managers, they're just people who've been in the company for far too long and have been given senior titles to make them feel like they're better than others which is bad news for junior members of the team as you'll never get support, be it professional or personal as they do try very hard to show how little they care about you. - No flexibility whatsoever and high disregard for one's personal life - no mental health support or any sort of concession when it comes to balancing work with your personal life. - No progression unless that involves constant brown-nosing for at least a few years and one shows no signs of having a mind of their own. Just stick to the status quo and inflate your "manager's" ego and you might get far...one day. - Complete disregard for performance and effort as what's important is to make your superiors feel like they're better than everyone else. - Seriously, I was never told "thank you" by any of my managers during all the time I spent working there. - Once someone becomes a "Vice President" (followed by Senior VP, Super Senior VP, Super Duper Executive VP, King of the World and whatever other inflated title they can come up with to mirror their egos) they feel like they can yell at junior staff, bully them, and even dismiss them as HR is very much in line with this hierarchical structure. - Please make yourself a favour and work for someone who values you as these guys would sell their own mothers if that makes them look better so imagine how they'll treat you.
