Sad to see what it's become

(Current Employee)

ProsA recognizable brand on your resume. Other than that, unless you thrive on endless frustration, I can't think of anything else.

ConsAfter working at TWC for a number of years, it has been disheartening to watch what was once a loved brand turn into a shell of it's former self. The recent upgrades to the look of the network are nothing more than window dressing, designed to obscure the rot and deplorable moral that has plagued the company for quite sometime. Dysfunction is the rule rather than the exception at TWC, with managers in charge of departments they know nothing about, and employees constantly in the dark as to the intentions of leadership. Speaking for the broadcast side of the company, departments that once worked together as a team are often at odds with one another, and meaningful communication from the higher ups is mostly nonexistent. We have an executive team that would rather spend their time in New York rather than the home base of Atlanta, and employees can't help but wonder if that might influence whatever moves they might make next. Overall, the atmosphere at TWC is grim and employees are always ready for a curve ball to be thrown our way. Not at all an enjoyable way to spend your working life.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake an effort to communicate and physically interact with your lowly employees from time to time. A pre produced quarterly informational TV show is no replacement for meaningful face to face time with reports. Also, it would be nice to have at least somewhat competent people in management positions.
