    Shame

    Project Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWas a great company until the Lifetime merger and then everything changed for the worst.

    ConsSame as above. Totally broke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou had a great company until the Lifetime merger so you broke what was working well.

    Apathy, apathy, apathy!!

    Director (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsI like working in the cable TV business and A&E has some strong potential in History (if they can ever decide what it's supposed to be) and A&E channel. The people are nice and the company is very family friendly.

    ConsApathy for new ideas and new thinking runs rampant throughout the company. There is a huge amount of dead wood in the place. If you want to be a follower and retire at the same job after 20 years, then send over your resume. Upper management seems devoid of team spirit and the ability to get the most out of those that are supposed to be pitching in. Very disorganized between departments and severe lack of communication. Too many women. Try leveling things out with a male hire once in awhile.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry walking the halls and getting to know the little people. I think some of your marketing people have gone stale and some just don't know what they're doing. Try getting a handle on communication between departments that should be working together to really help move the network forward.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
