    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 worked at Time Warner

    Pros

    Fair compensation. Great work hours.

    Cons

    Retirement plans have gotten stingy. Recently had to layoff 20% of employee base, to avoid takeover. So not too stable, anymore. Very hard to move up, veterans never leave and when they do, positions are done away with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Took too long to figure out multi device digital distribution, Content is not innovative, still resting on the laurels from hits of 20 years ago.

    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

    Pros

    Great benefits. With the benefits from cable and the loose vacation time it's a great place to work.

    Big company and you'll sometimes get lost in the mix of corporate life.
