Warner Bros. Discovery

Diversity Equity Engagement Intern

June 2021 • Burbank, CA

What I liked

Very supportive and inclusive office, excellent intern programming events, and access to an impressive network. Interns are clearly appreciated at WM, and the folks here want to help you achieve your goals.

What I wish was different

My opportunity was remote, so trying to connect with others was difficult, especially being the only intern in my office.

Advice

Reach out to folks, and treat the "coffee chats" like an interview about their career if you're struggling to come up with conversation topics.

Software Developer

May - August 2020 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I was already excited to work for WarnerMedia since they have contributed so much in the entertainment industry but I hadn’t expected to have such an eventful internship. I got to meet developers who worked with CNN, Cartoon Network, WarnerBros and more. I joined the team as they were releasing HBO Max and got to see early premiers of shows before the public audience. For our tasks, I was treated as a member of the team and participated in agile meetings that have taught me so much about the art of communication. If I hadn’t any tasks to complete, WarnerMedia provided meaningful events for interns to participate in such as conversations about racial diversity, LGBTQ+ inclusion, career advice and networking tips. My perception of the company had expanded and I have nothing but positive feedback about their internship program. Even after the internship, I’m often invited to join career opportunities with them and stay connected with employees on LinkedIn to stay in touch even after graduation. WarnerMedia’s internship made me feel very included with the company.

What I wish was different

Like many other interns, the pandemic situation caused me to work from home. I would have liked to have work with my team in person to make closer connections. I wanted to see how working in person differs from online to get experience for future job positions.

Advice

I would say to not be afraid to voice your questions. Put yourself out there. Companies understand you’re an intern and are new to the work environment. You’re a rookie and that’s okay! The internship is a great place to learn so take advantage of being able to work with so many professionals. You don’t have to stay stuck on an issue on your own. They’re often more eager to help than you think.

Entertainment Content Partnerships Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I loved everything about this internship. I not only learned a lot about advertising and the entertainment industry but I met amazing people. The people at WarnerMedia are all open to meeting interns for coffee chats. There was an internship group project and that was also a great experience working in the group. WarnerMedia just has amazing people and interns. They teach a lot especially the content partnerships department. Moreover, there were lunch & learns multiple times a week which really gave a lot of information on different departments in the company.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship program organized more ways for interns to socialize and get to know each other earlier in the summer. We somehow started to socialize and then became close but it took a while.

Advice

Just work hard! Put everything into your tasks and make sure they are your 110% effort because it really shows. Show improvement and genuinely try to learn. Meet people from the company for coffee chats to get to know what they do and if you would like to do that in the future.

Sports Marketing Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I loved getting to experience the media culture in New York City, getting exposure to the business behind media buying and selling and meeting with great contacts both internally and externally of Warner to further my professional network. New York City is also one of my favorite places on earth, I could go on for hours about how incredible it is! The workplace culture within media is fairly casual (I've found thus far), and focuses on transparency which I believe is key in successful marketing companies today.

What I wish was different

I wish I had lived a little closer to work, or in the NYU dorms! Or the duration had been longer!

Advice

Informational interviews can be set up with anyone; reach out! The worst you can get is a no reply or a no. Most will be willing to chat on the phone or sit down over coffee for 30 minutes, and come prepared with actual questions you have about your career and be ready to take notes! Always follow up with a thank you e-mail, and if it's a personal matter, a handwritten thank you note.

Big Data Engineer Intern

May - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

The internship provided me with so many learning experiences and connections. The work culture was superb. I do think that your overall experience is a reflection of the team that you are working with and those whom you surround yourself with, however, you can always find happiness with this company.

What I wish was different

I joined in the middle of an acquisition, so the work place was incredibly busy and fast-paced. At times, I felt overlooked because of this.

Advice

If you're not immediately assigned a mentor and project, seek them on your own. Spend as much time getting to know the other employees - they are wonderful people. Take in all that the company has to offer, you won't regret it.

May - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I loved the fact that you never really knew what you were going to do the next day. Yes there was a schedule, but problems would spring from unexpected places. This was a fun and challenging aspect. It requires and builds problem-solving skills.

What I wish was different

Honestly, nothing. It was a great experience.

Advice

Work hard toward and manifest your goals. Your preparation will be superlative when an opportunity crosses your path. Always be on the lookout.

Ad Sales Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

I wish I could have spent more time getting to know the other interns; however, other than that, it was amazing.

Advice

Reach out to everyone you can! Ask people about their jobs, they love to talk and just want someone to listen to them.

Data Analyst

June - August 2018 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I love that the work environment. It was very similar to my college campus, and my supervisors were just as willing to teach me new things as my professors!

What I wish was different

I only wish that I had been able to continue in this position during the semester. It was a great experience!

Advice

My advice would be to have an open mind. I had no idea what to expect working as a Data Analyst, and the title was at first intimidating. I ended up with a diverse experience and a stronger professional network.

Business Workplace and Technology Solutions Intern

June - August 2019 • Burbank, CA

What I liked

I loved the supportive and diverse workplace environment, it was so fun and everyone was very friendly to me. I felt so at home and my managers were very trusting of me and my work, they never micro-managed me and were so proud of me every step of the way. I was a tech intern in the marketing department, so I would often get Warner Bros. merchandise as well. By the end, I was SO sad to leave and my team thanked me so much for the work I did there.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have been there longer, the ten weeks seemed very short.

Advice

I would tell people that intern at Warner Bros. to network network network! I met so many employees and I feel that that greatly impacted the decision to give me a return offer.

Learning and Organization Development Intern

June - August 2019 • Burbank, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed working with a small team that engaged with different business units across the whole organization. Additionally, I liked that I was given a lot of responsibility and projects that I could have ownership of. I also liked working on the WB lot, as it definitely made for a unique experience. Lastly, Warner Bros. University Relations provided many resources and events for the interns throughout the summer.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have worked with other interns more. I was the sole HR intern so I mostly worked with full-time employees.

Advice

I would say since there is so much diversity in what Warner Bros./Warner Media make and produce (movies, TV, consumer products, music, etc.), it would be a great idea to talk to as many people as possible – particularly people that are working in a field that you are interested in.
