    Great working environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe environment is very creative, friendly and supportive. Really good benefits and a great Atlanta-based company for involvement in the entertainment industry.

    ConsDue to financial constraints, over the years, the perks to employees continue to decease. Additionally, I've found that it is difficult to move up within the company as many middle and upper managers tend to stay in positions for a long time. It would be nice to have some more opportunities and turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think management should consider placing some sort of maximum on time spent in a position, which I think would help get new ideas and systems in place. Additionally, I would love some sort of way to evaluate my managers and directors so that they could also get feedback from their employees.

    Received great experience from my internship

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFun environment, opportunities to be mentored, and exciting projects to work on. I learned so much from interning here and had opportunities to meet with many different departments and get a better understanding of how each one works together to make the company great.

    ConsCan't think of any at the moment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open to working with different personality types. Other than that, I'd say keep up the good work.

    Current boss, company perks and working on world renowned sites makes this a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsWork on great sites in different verticals, such as News (CNN, CNNMoney, HLN), Sports (NBA, PGA, NCAA) and Entertainment (truTV, TNT, TBS) make for an exciting, dynamic work environment. Company is extremely friendly to minorities and the GLBT community with Business Resource Groups (BRG).

    ConsPath to career growth is not clear. Travel to conferences and the like is not evenly distributed. There seems to be a lack of support for Christians. (company will not support Christian or Religious based charities)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Overall positive, good benefits, excellent 401K match, competitive salaries.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood people, but that depends on the area of the company where you work.

    ConsAscending into upper management is difficult. Strategy of the company in some areas can be questionable at times.
