Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Work from home 3 days a week(sweet), 401k, Insiders Advantage, Discounts, Food court and CNN Diner, Gym on-site. Culture of work-life balance, but really depends on which group you work for it you really get to experience it first hand. Summer Fridays.

Cons

Pay is under market rate for almost all positions. Negotiate up front a higher pay if you can. Managers would prefer to keep you underpaid so their bonuses are higher. Lack of time to experience other aspects of the company and it's products due to every increasing workload. Upper Management is only concerned about numbers/metrics and not the well being/stress level of their staff. Upward growth is very difficult. Silly and childish office politics. Some of the Lead team members appear to be extremely overworked and unavailable do to all their meetings or projects they are working on. Re-orgs are frequent in other departments, the IT dept is going through one right now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more opportunities for employee training and advancement. Quit dumping more work on the team without hiring another warm body or two to spread the workload. Get rid of the non-performers dragging the department down. Be more open about what changes are happening inside the company. It would not hurt to have an attaboy or attagirl once in a while.

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

    Pros

    Love working with most everyone there. Amazing benefits and challenging fun projects to work on. Great work life balance and many execs that place importance on their family life.

    Cons

    Many reorgs in the technology divisions have left the staff uneasy and disenfranchised. There are redundant technology divisions that have very different cultures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Combine the development groups into one group.
