    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working in show business on the IT side of things was very interesting. The content was all over the place, from unscripted junk on TBS to great dramas on TNT to cartoons and very strange quasi-adult fare on Adult Swim. Leave policy and insurance are excellent. Turner has a challenging environment with scaling web site traffic. Technically, the group is very strong and provides opportunities for growth in skill sets during employment. The campus is a great place to work, but the 'dark towers' of CNN are where IT power resides. Many different and interesting technologies have been used to respond to business needs. Top of the line usage for mobile growth and deployment are in place.

    Cons

    Risk aversion is the number one concern of the senior IT management team. Failure is punished and a not used as a good way to experiment. Turf building and silos are more important than client service. The unfortunate systems engineers and support staff are tasked with 24/7 call and long hours. Efforts to virtualize the machine base have been slow and difficult. Excessive use of resources by CNN when business revenue is really from Sports and Entertainment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT as a consulting pool to the businesses has not worked. Embed the teams with the businesses to give them a real interest in what is produced and in providing client satisfaction. Knock out middle management and take a chance on some of the hot line managers as directors.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Turner Broadcasting.

    Interview Details

    Long process - interviewed once on the phone, twice in one week in person, team seemed very excited to meet with me, I was as well. The company then went on a hiring freeze and I heard nothing from them for months. Finally one simple email came saying they were passing. Kind of rude considering it cost me well over $900 in travel expenses to interview for them and no sort of accommodations were made on their part.
