I worked at CNN full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Amazing sense of camaraderie between coworkers. Passionate individuals who are enthusiastic about their work and getting it done with the best results.

Cons

Somewhat difficult to move up within the company since so many people stick around for several years.

    I worked at CNN full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits. Having a parking place downtown.

    Cons

    Leadership is a greedy, reactionary good ol boy network. Too many Vice Presidents. 20/50/100 rule (layoff after 20 years, 50 years old, $100k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Serve your customers not your shareholders or the President du jour. Get rid of the "personality, star based" system and get back to gathering and sharing the news simply and cheaply.

    Former Employee - Intern  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at CNN as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The free iNews, MIRA, and Media Source courses were helpful.

    Cons

    Very negative working environment. Co-workers gossip on a daily basis and back stab each other. Internship program is a joke, no help/guidance/events was provided throughout the course of the internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect, listen, and value creativity. Give your interns real responsibilities, not use them as copy machines.
