Forget performance, all about personality at Turner

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CNN

ProsGreat perks and discounts; really solid insurance coverage, capable, compassionate coworkers who crave the ability to do their jobs well and receive recognition for it.

ConsIt's who you know, not what you know. Just be aware of that going in to Turner. Make sure you never mention anyone's incompetencies or errors because you become the trouble maker. The in-crowd can make huge errors.... errors that wind up in trade media and ridiculed on line. A less popular person, but more capable person can make a minor mistake, like misspelling a name, and get written up. But the talent can go on air unprepared or just report errors and STILL work there.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet performance and not personality become more important in making decisions about promotion and career development. A person shouldn;t be able to talk and schmooze their way into senior management, vice presidency and SVP roles. Require accountability and measure performance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
