    Pros

    -Free Screenings and events (when you are selected and movies are already released in theaters) -Diverse workplace -401k Match -Great Location for commuting in -Building has nice views and is fairly modern

    Cons

    -Company does not invest in its employees - no continual training for job related skills -Expects you to work long hours when management leaves after 8. Not willing to stay when needed. -Never back-fill for positions that employees left- your stick with doing more and no raise. -The budget to run the department is not in line with the needs -Approval for new hardware is almost impossible-to much red tape -Management is not open to suggestions by employees/if they do use it they brand it as their own and don't give you credit. -No room for growth. -Management is old and not efficient for the current fast paced/high demand media landscape -Company perks are being taking away like sick time and amount of hours before overtime

    Advice to Management

    Have a way to have a 360 review of managers. Stop treating your employees as if they don't know the business needs and what the users want. Should use us as a resource since we are the "boots on the ground"

    Pros

    Nice building. All the fanciest restaurants in the US is in this building.

    Cons

    No QA team, developers have to do that. No production support, guess who gets called in middle of the night? Developers. The work flow is extremely flawed as developers can easily put work straight to production, yet management choose to ignore these bigger issues but focus on trivial ones like if the employee comes in on time or not.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the 4 basic steps of the software development cycle and assign the right people for each step. Currently, developers are responsible for 3/4 of this cycle!


  6. Politically Charged, Little to no Training

    I have been working at Time Warner

    Pros

    The employee benefits and perks look attractive

    Cons

    very politically charged work environment

    Advice to Management

    Be more efficient at providing new consultants with materials regarding Time Warner's business approach and methodology.


  7. Cowardly executive leadership...

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, etc

    Cons

    Pay above market rate; hard to find elsewhere in the area. The Tampa Bay market is depressed salary-wise, unless you're possibly in IT. With the facility shutting down, and the Company offering no opportunities for jobs elsewhere, it will be hard to find comparable pay in the area. Also, lack of executive leadership with starting up new departments - instead of standing firm, leadership cut and run, and thus, we are losing our jobs. Oh well, the Corporate office is in New York, so who cares about people losing their jobs?


  8. Culture sub par for short time was there.

    Pros

    Well known publishing products, such as Time, Fortune, Sports Illustrated. Collegial culture, good benefits, conveniently located in mid-town Manhattan, largest publishing company in the US

    Cons

    Got complacent, fell behind, lost its edge, did not get ahead of the digital medium, still has not integrated print and digital sales

    Pros

    Health, dental, and 401k benefits are good.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not very good. If you don't have a good immediate supervisor to motivate in tough times it's not good place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees that have built your business respectfully and know that sales are cyclical and change year to year.
