10 year of service

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Columbia, SC

I worked at Time Warner full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat benefits and a good company to work for.

Consneed more jobs in the South Carolina Market and stop moving the jobs to other states.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement need to treat people like they are adults, and speak to their employees about job changes and movement of the departments. The management also need to explain what is going on with the company and not keeping their employees in the shadows.

I loved working at Time Warner. They're a good solid company.

Senior Computer Operator (Current Employee)
Englewood, CO

I have been working at Time Warner

ProsThe pay was very fair. The benefits were good. Several paid days off per year. Always a Professional atmosphere. Management was great. People were nice.

ConsIt was hard to move/promote into other areas within the company. I felt stuck within my department. I saw them hire from outside many times. I finally gave up.

Advice to Senior ManagementDuring my time at Time Warner, the leadership was great. Although I don't think I ever met or even saw the CEO, but I heard good things about him. I knew his executive secretary and she liked him.

Overall, ok but you are only as good as your last sales month

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Stable environment with many long timers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Time Warner

ProsIt is stable company, even though there were some layoffs in last few years it was not significant. Benefits are above average compared to other companies. Good work life balance programs and internal learning opportunities.

ConsCareer growth is hard to come by. Many people have worked over 15-20 years and company has been shrinking in the past few years. At Corporate there are not many opportunities for career advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on growing business rather than trying to cost by being penny wise.

Don't think everything you read on Wall Street Journal applies to Time Warner. This causes significant wastage work effort on employees part.
