    Pros

    Excellent professional experience for the time I was involved in the business.

    Cons

    Slow to see around the corner and to make the hard moves to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment that supports fast failures and innovation. Media has to move at the speed of consumers and that's now accelerated to real time.

    I have been working at Time Warner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Time off, summer Fridays, work-life balance, flexibility

    Cons

    Promotions do not seem to be based on merit, and career growth is very slow and limited

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone does a very good job a project, and has delighted the clients there should be some reward .. making not encouraging good employees a pattern (in fact rewarding failed projects) is not a good retention strategy

    I have been working at Time Warner

    Pros

    Highly competitive compensation with great benefits. People are intelligent and hardworking and generally able maintain a desirable work-life balance. Management is highly competent and employees are empowered to do their jobs largely unchecked or micromanaged. There's a sense that the executives know what they're doing which fosters confidence in the employees across the company.

    Cons

    A very corporate and somewhat stuffy work environment that lacks a sense of community. Red tape and a top heavy executive structure also seems to limit fresh ideas and innovation. It's a fine place to settle in and get cozy for a while but don't expect to rock the boat or sow your creative oats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better team building could go a long way

    I have been working at Time Warner full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, higher than average compensation at Corporate.

    Cons

    The culture is resistant to change and there aren't enough female leaders to effect gender diversity, especially in the senior management ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your most valuable assets - its people. Identify those employees who have demonstrated good work and ambition to do more by challenging them and promoting them to be in non-traditional roles to help them learn the business. Promote gender and race diversity to shift the culture to embrace change and drive innovation of thought. There are many "old timers" in key decision-making positions who are obtuse to implicit biases against women.

    I worked at Time Warner as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great location at 59th and Columbus (can't beat looking out into central park on sunny days)
    Leading media company = awesome name on a resume
    Lots of fun activities going on every week
    Free premieres to new Warner Bros movies and tv shows
    Young workforce for the most part, and really chill fun work environment to be in

    Cons

    Hours can get kinda long depending on department you're in
    Over-priced cafeteria
    For a 21st century media company....the building sure hasn't kept pace.....way to corporate looking!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an intern I had a wonderful experience in my department so there isn't much I can say really.

    For those of you looking to join this company though...keep in mind the offices are shifting to Hudson Yards in 2018...and as per managements word...there will be a lot more "shared working spaces" (aka downsizing) so just something to consider.
