Current Employee - Broadcast Operations Shift Supervisor in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Turner Broadcasting

Pros

I can't complain about GREAT BENEFITS!!!!!!!

Cons

Management DOES NOT recognize those individuals who REALLY work hard and care about the individuals they work with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

STOP promoting individuals who don't know what they are doing................PERIOD!!!!!!!! Start evaluating your supervisory staff, most of them don't have a clue as to what to do in an emergency situation nor do they know how to be a backfill resource when staff is short. Make them be more responsible by giving them real responsibilities (i.e. become working supervisors not lazy ones).

-This only pertains to the BOC or Broadcast Operations Center!!!!

    Former Employee - Production Support Specialist in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting

    Pros

    Liberal work environment, a chance to meet TV celebrities, discount club for local Atlanta business, good cafeteria on site, monthly give away and promotions for employees, On site Gym. No worries parking and super quick access to the highway.
    Great work mates.

    Cons

    Reviews are based more on your physiological profile than on your actual performance. Regardless of how well you perform your job if you fail their pigeon hole idea of what is the "perfect person" you are considered a failure to upper management.
    No real oversights of how funds are spent. Users spend money with out regard to to TCO's or compatibility creating more work for techs.
    Little research is done on compatibility of different software components by the software team.
    Information is disseminated slowing and innovation seems to be frowned upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand just because a person has followed the SOP of a previous employer does not mean they will not be able to adapt to your SOP.

    Pros

    Annual raise and bonus.
    Paid time off. The company combines sick days / floating holidays with vacation days.
    Company discounts.
    Medical/Dental/Vision benefits.

    Cons

    No advancement.
    Low morale.
    Management play favorites and use retaliation against direct reports.
    The recent round of layoffs left employees with a feeling of uncertainty that upper management have done little to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at all areas before making cuts. Lower management often contribute to a waste of resources.
    Allow movement in various departments as well as inter-department transfers.
