I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The amount of PTO time is very competetive and the benefits offered are fantastic

Cons

Management in broadcast operations is terrible. They get a couple of people that are qualified to make sure everything runs well and have them do their jobs for them. At the least make them look competent. They keep unqualified management indefintely due to low turn over. The multiple members of Turners broadcast operations management team are not only incompetent they are often unpleasant as well. If you have options I suggest staying far from this department. They give the illusion that there is a positive atmosphere but it's all smoke and mirrors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior level management needs to ask the staff for their honest opinions about the mangement team they work for. The yearly survey needs to break down questions by position instead of lumping together upper management and lower management levels. I may feel like my network VP is doing a good job but that my department manager isn't. It is not an accurate portrayal of how employees feel about their management and work enviroment.

    Pros

    Because the company is large there are a lot of places for growth. Attractive benefits and overall fun work-life culture are evident throughout.

    Cons

    It would be nice to see more direct career development programs added within. Most everything else has an upside to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall level of professional experience is high. Open opportunities for influence by strong mentors as well as opportunity to mentor others.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package and opportunity to work with professionals with diverse backgrounds. Nationally recognized company.

    Cons

    Very competitive for job positions until you are already working within the company. Additionally, not always provided the opportunity to gain skill sets required to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more opportunities for employees to work and become exposed with other departments. Additionally, for the lower ranking employees, offer ways employees can gain skill sets to advance.
