    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is really a fantastic company. There are great benefits, they care about their employees, lots of opportunity to move around, and a generally friendly enviornment. They are also working on some of the coolest things in the business!!

    Cons

    Several departments are (like in many large companies) driven by nothing but politics. I had a VP tell me to allow a revenue producing service go offline just to teach another VP a lesson. There are a lot of tremendously talented people there though. Hopefully they can turn it around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the mangement that is only concerned with climbing the ladder and throw them out. Everyone needs to get the message that they work for Turner Broadcasting, not just their team or department.

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

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (more than an 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 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.
