    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at A+E Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing work/life balance
    Salary is high if you come in as an external hire at a middle management/senior management level
    If you're a gay, young, good looking male, you will likely be promoted regardless of merit depending on who you report to.

    Cons

    It's a sinking ship. Very poor caliber of talent especially at the senior levels. I honestly don't understand how they keep the lights on.
    HR/Senior leaders will lie directly to your face. They will only ever act in the best interest of themselves.
    You will not learn anything worthwhile to build your skill-set. It's the perfect job if you have a family, want to make good money and be complacent. It is not a company for anyone who is ambitious.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Hire good people and trust them to make decisions. Fix the demoralizing culture that stems from the top down. There's zero empowerment, autonomy or integrity at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the job before you gives order. Respect is a two way street, give it in order to receive it. Better pay or perks to make up for the amount of work/coverage that has to be done.

    Pros

    Good Benefits; Oatmeal from the "cafeteria"; nice mailroom people

    Cons

    In a company where the people representing you are referred to as "In-Human Resources", you best align yourself with someone in upper management quickly, or you'll be going nowhere fast; they make all the policies, despite what (I)HR wants you to think. The company is scrambling to offset poor TV ratings for the past few years, and it's caused upper management to make some very poor decisions; there are quite a few unhappy people working there, but no one seems to care. Look elsewhere if you can; otherwise, if you're junior, get your one to two years' experience and get going elsewhere soon after.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your you-know-what's
