    Advice to Management

    I really like Cartoon Network. It feels like a safe place for artists to be creative and get really hands on on the shows they are working on. I also like that its not super cooperate, but please pay your artists more. We're trying to live a decent life doing what we love.

    Pros

    Fun work environment and flexible. The pipeline structure is a great way to get involved and learn. Coworkers soon become friends.

    Cons

    I wish the salary was bit more competitive. Although the fun times are a plenty there, management can breathe down your neck a little too much.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great people, and solid benefits make working there a blast! Most people stay within the company a long time.

    Cons

    What's great about CN is the independent vibe but sometimes it can feel too corporate. Would be nice to have more of a studio feeling throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind to your artists, they are the lifeblood of the company. Give them the support they need because it will usually be worth the effort.

    Top heavy. Czar-like mentality. Does not value contributions of "below VP" level. New CMO with little experience.
