I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Fun environment, cool people, great mixture of small company and big company feel in a major corporation, exciting product, mostly respectful colleagues, great overall culture

Cons

Hard to move around internally (many people at Turner joke that you have to leave and come back to get a promotion at Turner), horrible bonuses, merit based salary increase always seems like a stupid game to keep you under a certain increase%, far too heavy workload

Advice to Management

Make internal movement more a priority, develop some kind of management/leadership development program (FOR NON-MANGERS) that will groom employees to take on higher level roles internally - a similar program to get employees more involved in content development/creative/technology roles would be great too., and get better incentives. Working at Turner can be like being a spectator at a wonderful meal. There is all this cool work around, but no clear way to get involved in the cool stuff if you didn't start on that career path.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to add a great name to your resume

    Cons

    The managers are idiots. Cronyism is rampant. After elections it's a sinking ship. Lots of layoffs this year.

    Advice to Management

    Be better at career pathing your employees. Stop promoting problems into management positions (those that can't do manage). Respect people for their work.

    Pros

    you can branch out and learn from different people but you have to be proactive about it. The facilites are very nice at techwood and the dress is casual.

    Cons

    not many opportunities to contribute as an intern. In my experience the people weren't very friendly or express much interest in getting to know the interns.
