    I worked at Turner Broadcasting (More than a year)

    Turner is a very exciting place to work. There is always a lot going on. The benefits package is comprehensive. There is a lot of opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    Great benefits and soon to be renovated offices.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement and a culture of extreme politics. Average to low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Merit increases are not enough $ to reward good employees. Promotions should be based on solid work and capability instead of politics and "who you know" gossip.

    Pros

    - You learn more than you can imagine about your trade while working on the job. - Obviously looks great on any resume. - They seem to genuinely care for their employees. Ice cream carts go around all offices in summer. Basketball goals with shooting competitions around March Madness.

    Cons

    Word on the 'street' is it's still very political (promotions, who gets blamed, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Contractors deserve love too.
