    Pros

    Diversity. Time Warner is very inclusive and does an excellent job hiring and developing minority talent. The benefits are great, pay is solid. Executive Management is very grounded and that sensibility trickles down throughout lower management and the rest of the company.

    Cons

    Career growth is stagnant. There is a lot of talk about talent development and promoting from within, yet internal candidates often lose out to externals.

    People who work here are lifers, which limits growth opportunities. The lifer mentality also restricts innovation.

    Pros

    Great properties / brands. People you look forward to seeing more than your own family. I mean you look forward to seeing them. Which is a big plus since you spend more time with them than your own family.

    Cons

    Not all the divisions play all that nice with each other. And the impending spin offs have made some people "check out" early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management do quite well balancing their own visions and offering reality checks.

    Ability to move up or around.

    Lots of re-orging. Lack of communication with corporate. Sr. managers disappear without warning.

    Keep the flow of communication going so that if you are not at the corporate office you still have an idea of what direction the company is going.

    I have been working at Time Warner

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    During 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.
