Former Employee - Director of Finance in Atlanta, GA
Former Employee - Director of Finance in Atlanta, GA

I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Exciting Industry
Opportunity to move around and do different things

Cons

Terrible Finance Organization
Old School Approach to People Management and Development
Very difficult to transition into new roles in the Finance Organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your Finance Organization is stale and borderline unethical. You need to integrate new talent in - especially at the top. Quit worrying about CPA credentials and start looking for people who have the capacity to understand business and the impact of what they do on other parts of the company. You have people who have spent their entire careers there leading the organization, and they are old school and stale.
