Wrong Place to work if you are a technologist or a developer

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Former Employee - Senior Software Developer  in  Atlanta, GA
Former Employee - Senior Software Developer in Atlanta, GA

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Great company to work for

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Supervisor  in  Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Supervisor in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    Flexible culture, always promoting innovation and collaboration. Benefits are great and schedule is pretty flexible. Paid Time Off increases as years go by and you get a good amount of days off. Great training programs and perks.

    Cons

    It's a little bit hard to move around. The recruitment department is not very effective and the internal opportunities site is not clear enough on salary and hiring manager information so it makes it difficult to decide if a position is good for you or not. You can grow, if you make connections, otherwise you are set to stay in the same place for a long time.

    Current Employee - Manager in Atlanta, GA

    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
