I have been working at Time Warner

Pros

Location - Columbus Circle (conveniently located near subways, restaurants, gym and Whole Foods in building);
Unlimited Sick Days
Decent work ours

Cons

Lack of career advancement opportunities (both promotional and lateral)
Even though there is an internal mobility program, other divisions not willing to consider candidates from "corporate"
Upper management extremely unqualified
Annual reviews are not taken seriously by upper management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensation packages need to improve (as compared to market), too many health benefits/pension cutbacks. Need to invest in professional development of its people.

    A bit stifling, and don't expect to get ahead without lots of sucking up.

    I worked at Time Warner

    Pros

    I had a very good insurance plan and a good amount of vacation days.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication between higher ups and senior management, so things get lost in translation to the rest of the team, therefore wasting time, effort and money. Some of the higher up editors (above senior level) have been their forever and don't seem to be afraid of losing jobs. This level of management has very stale ideas, and without a doubt, heavily sides with those who suck up to and 'yes' all of their ideas. It is held against you if you disagree, you can see it in the treatment of people who do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The higher ups, ie executive editors, etc could really do with some new blood. And less sucking up to them, would create a much more comfortable environment. You can see that the senior editors don't need to be sucked up to, but for some reason their bosses do. It's tiring and gets old.

    Pros

    Security to work for a big company and awesome benefits.

    Cons

    They cap your earnings and punish overachievers for selling over their quotas by lowering commisions every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should reward overachievers instead of caping their income potencial.
