Great company, but struggling to move into the 21st century media culture.

Former Employee - Manager in Atlanta, GA

I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great people! Great benefits. Competitive salary. Locations everywhere. HQ in Atlanta has great cost of living.

Cons

As with any large company, politics. Slow to react to changes in the market. Do not buy back unused vacation days. Given the 24/7 nature of the business, it is difficult to use all of your vacation days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Streamline yourselves and oust upper management that do not add value or stand in the way of progress for the sake of their own working groups.
