I worked at Turner Broadcasting
Pros – Some solid journalists, compensation package is okay, a place for entry level folks to get experience quickly and leave for other opportunities
Cons – Mid level management is terrible and doesn't communicate, no room for career growth, not a family oriented atmosphere, human resources not helpful,
Advice to Senior Management – The company should really look at mid management and the problems they create and no solutions. Mid management needs alot of training to be effective not only on job but also in communication and employee relations.

I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Lots of opportunities to add a great name to your resume
Cons – The managers are idiots. Cronyism is rampant. After elections it's a sinking ship. Lots of layoffs this year.
Advice to Senior Management – Be better at career pathing your employees. Stop promoting problems into management positions (those that can't do manage). Respect people for their work.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Turner Broadcasting
Pros – -It's a very popular company, and looks GREAT on a resume.
-Turner Broadcasting includes so many television brands, I particularly work for CNN and it's plethora of networks.
Cons – -The compensation is the lowest in the television industry for a global media organization
-The line level management prefers not to communicate well with it's teams.
Advice to Senior Management – As an industry we are the lowest compensated employees on the totem-pole yet we work hard to make our brand, our content and our product the strongest in the industry. Our company needs to restructure its pay scales and be considerate of the workers who make CNN such a popular and sustainable product. The cost of housing in Washington, DC where I work and live doubled by 201% in 2005; with over 10 years if outstanding industry experience my annual compensation shows nothing of it.
