    Pros

    They provide a steady paycheck in a down economy. They also have benefits. They train anyone to do the job.

    Cons

    consistently ignores employee feedback which management asked for. Consistently ignores customer feedback. Consistently failing to think projects through in an appropriate manner (IE. the failure to forsee issues with poorly planned projects).

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to employees, all the management seems to be self concerned. They refuse to listen to the mandatory surveys regarding them selves, and listen even less to the ones employees leave.

    Pros

    The Benefits are great and you get a good length of vacation time.

    Cons

    Lack of acknowlegement and compensation. Assistants are the least paid and the most overworked. No bonus. Too much politics among managers. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. Get out and speak to people in the company. Know what your managers are doing/not doing and how they are handling their teams.

    Pros

    Nice building. All the fanciest restaurants in the US is in this building.

    Cons

    No QA team, developers have to do that. No production support, guess who gets called in middle of the night? Developers. The work flow is extremely flawed as developers can easily put work straight to production, yet management choose to ignore these bigger issues but focus on trivial ones like if the employee comes in on time or not.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the 4 basic steps of the software development cycle and assign the right people for each step. Currently, developers are responsible for 3/4 of this cycle!


  8. Politically Charged, Little to no Training

    Cons

    very politically charged work environment

    Advice to Management

    Be more efficient at providing new consultants with materials regarding Time Warner's business approach and methodology.


  9. Cowardly executive leadership...

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, etc

    Cons

    Pay above market rate; hard to find elsewhere in the area. The Tampa Bay market is depressed salary-wise, unless you're possibly in IT. With the facility shutting down, and the Company offering no opportunities for jobs elsewhere, it will be hard to find comparable pay in the area. Also, lack of executive leadership with starting up new departments - instead of standing firm, leadership cut and run, and thus, we are losing our jobs. Oh well, the Corporate office is in New York, so who cares about people losing their jobs?

    Advice to Management

    Care more about employees
