Former Employee - Director of Finance in Atlanta, GA

I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time for 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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    High quality people for the most part. Higher than average salary and benefits. Exciting and fun work and environment.

    Cons

    Who you know will be the most important thing to obtain a position or to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate and remove any dead weight at the mid to upper levels. Allow the review process to mean something.
