ProsThe Weather Channel has done what is necessary to transition from a "middling" company to a transformational company. They have shed the yoke of a "quality place to work" for the relentless pursuit of "what have you done for me lately" mentality. Question is, can something so commoditized as the weather be a defining, successful business model? If you think that brand supersedes the marketplace then bet on The Weather Channel.

ConsC-Level management behaves as though they are in the untouchable caste. New hires almost certainly have to have some previous connection to C-Level management to come aboard if they hope to achieve.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't turn your back on the "establishment" associates - they built this company. They have wisdom and insight that applies to the business. This isn't just another start-up that you can spur with superfluous, shiny ideas and flip for a dollar. Consumers value The Weather Channel for its steadfast trustworthiness and insight.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
