    Great place to work if only a few bad managers were replaced and more recognition and advance opportunities existed.

    Pros

    The compnay provides excellent benefits. They offer a lot of time off that increases with your experience with the company. The 401k plan has an excellent match. The work atmosphere is good and they consistently strive to improve the culture by providing opportuinites for feedback from all employees. The pay is pretty good for some positions and not so great in some others, but for the most part they pay good.

    Cons

    There are some cultural issues such as the impossibility of turning around old performance mistakes, those will always follow you no matter how hard you work to change those perceptions. In some instances, doors are closed and opportuinities shut down just because issues that happened years ago still haunt you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair and recognize good behavior more frequently. Also erase from your memory old bad behaviors that have been clearly changed to positive behaviors.

    Turner: A dynamic and exciting place to work

    Pros

    Turner tries hard to be an open, flexible, and diversified place to work and within the last few years the company has made significant strides in that area. They are considered one of the best places to work for mothers and Human Rights Campaign (HRC) rated Turner Broadcasting with 100% on their Corporate Equality Index.

    This is also a fun and challenging place to work with lots of opportunity to become involved with new technology and to be a part of an exciting environment. Employees tend to be very supportive of each other and take ownership of the work they do. The benefits are good and cover medical, dental, generous 401k, education reimbursement, paid time off, adoption assistance and many others.

    Cons

    The nature of the business dictates quick response times and short planning cycles which, depending upon the department you're in, can increase stress and frustration. Budgets for external training can sometimes run short, leaving employees to find alternatives to expanding knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure there is plenty of communication with the employee base concerning the direction of the company and any issues the company as a whole should be aware of. The Senior Management has made a valiant effort in this regard in the last year or so and I would say to continue that trend. It helps when employees understand where the company is heading and why they make certain decisions.
