Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Nice benefits, nice discounts can get by without doing anything

Cons

Management has no clue about technology nor is interested in learning. They are at least a decade behind. TBS is not the same as CNN. Connections matter. Everything is swept under the rug.

Advice to Management

Give power to technologists if you want to take the company to 21st century. College degree matter. Get outside consultants to get an impartial picture.

    Current Employee - Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart coworkers, liberal benefits, well known brand names, work on latest technology Ability to impact and be directly involved in forming current and pop culture Great company to have n your resume, especially as Atlanta becomes more of a media town

    Cons

    Tendency to be pigeonholed at current level, promotions based on who, not what, you know Some technical management staff seem to have been promoted for their technical, not people, skills Company has been known to do large layoffs in the past, though more recent layoffs have occurred in very small chunks

    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Turner has great benefits and has often been listed in various best companies for mom's listings. We get great perks and discounts, even on large ticket items such as cars. There is also room for growth and movement laterally within the company.

    Cons

    Every large company has its share of red tape and Turner is no exception.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what it is like to be on the front lines. Remember that part of the job is to remove obstacles.
