    Pros

    Great work environment and meet a bunch of good people which I built some great relationships with.

    Pros

    Flexible hours / environment, family friendly culture, Convenient campus, interesting work. It is a great place to work in the Atlanta community and offers benefits like volunteer time off.

    Cons

    Recent layoffs, top-heavy management, changing industry that leads to unsure future career paths for current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees with promotions, monetary raises, flexible vacation policies. Redesign work areas so they don't look like the 1980s.

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Turner was fun and exciting. I loved the people and casual environment. the benefits were good and the work life balance was great. Turner focuses on developing people and there are a lot internal opportunities to grow yourself. But don't forget that you have to work for what you get, it not handed to you. My executive was very supportive and I was able to participate in a lot of different company initiatives.

    Cons

    I think the biggest frustration was that Turner is like a lot of little businesses. There are a lot of things that are not consistent across the company, every department does their own thing. An example is that a lot of departments do early release the day before a holiday, but some might be at noon and others at 3:00 while other departments might not do it all.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of change equals a lot of uncertainty, don't get so caught up in the numbers that you forget how you get the numbers. Your people are as important to your organization today as it was in Ted's day.
