    I worked at CNN full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's owned by Turner, which has excellent benefits. If you want to learn something, talk to your manager, then sign up for a passport, or just talk to a manager in that department and just do the job for a few days. Lots of great people work in the building, and networking opportunities are immense. It's better to be right than first - most people in the building believe that. And holding a meeting or networking at the Starbucks in the food court is the norm.

    Cons

    Well, take everything I said above with a grain of salt, because that's under the old management. There always were layoffs when I was there, and reorganizations, and one day your best buddy was there and then he was out. When I was let go, and someone in another dept. heard about it they took me to lunch, that's how nice folks are there. But it happens without warning, and to a lot of folks at once, and sometimes it makes no sense. The other drawbacks - its a 24/7 news operation, so who knows when you'll be working. My exec. producer appreciated the home/life balance, but the show comes first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So what if Fox beats us in the ratings? Quality matters more than ratings, and we made a quality product, and we still made a profit. The documentaries are good, but the news reporting, especially CNNI, couldn't be beat.
