    I have been working at Weather Channel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart, innovative people. Interesting work. High impact. Great brand recognition.

    Cons

    Work duplication due to turf wars. Departments must compete for limited promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The turf wars are very harmful to the organization, as they cause confusion for people who are just trying to get the job done. There's a mentality that if my team creates it first, I have to own it. In the end, we have three of everything, which hurts the bottom line and makes people feel as if their work isn't important. Empire builders have no place in a high performance company.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Weather Channel in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online then I received an email to set up a phone screen the next day. After the phone screen, a few days later we met for a group interview. Asked general interview questions, but we mostly discussed my work. There was a lot of competition and overall it was a really good experience.
