    Cowardly executive leadership...

    I have been working at Time Warner full-time (more than an year)

    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?

    Pros

    Getting to work with people

    Cons

    If you dont meet sales goals you are out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be happy that your reps are keeping customer happy and retaining them as customer instead of making it all about sales. Happy customers will stay with you, but if all you do is try to force services on them they dont want they will go with another company who wont do that.. Take the customer needs into consideration instead of what you want them to have.

    Pros

    Physical work environment. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Very political. Crushing at times. You have to learn to play the game in order to get ahead. Doesn't matter if you were effective in delivering. It is all on who you know and relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need true accountability. Without displaying this at the top, teams will never be motivated to succeed.
