    Pros

    Time Warner has subsidiaries that have progressive thinking in the entertainment industry, which is exciting for those that want to be leaders or part of a team that initiates trends that can easily turn into positive competitive business practices.

    Cons

    Depending on which subsidiary you would like to invest your talent in, there may not be much room for growth within the company.

    Pros

    -Free Screenings and events (when you are selected and movies are already released in theaters) -Diverse workplace -401k Match -Great Location for commuting in -Building has nice views and is fairly modern

    Cons

    -Company does not invest in its employees - no continual training for job related skills -Expects you to work long hours when management leaves after 8. Not willing to stay when needed. -Never back-fill for positions that employees left- your stick with doing more and no raise. -The budget to run the department is not in line with the needs -Approval for new hardware is almost impossible-to much red tape -Management is not open to suggestions by employees/if they do use it they brand it as their own and don't give you credit. -No room for growth. -Management is old and not efficient for the current fast paced/high demand media landscape -Company perks are being taking away like sick time and amount of hours before overtime

    Advice to Management

    Have a way to have a 360 review of managers. Stop treating your employees as if they don't know the business needs and what the users want. Should use us as a resource since we are the "boots on the ground"

    Pros

    Good area in the city, lots to do after work. I guess what was nice about it was how they kept good track of overtime working hours.

    Cons

    I would say the difficult thing about this company is that it is getting sort of out-of-trendy. It would be nice to see more innovation so if you are looking for an innovative company, this one is not for you.

    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 Management

    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.
