    I worked at CNN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees believed strongly in the brand and that imbued their work every day. It was great to work at a company that strived to walk a middle ground, esp in the now toxic, extremist environment of cable television news.

    Cons

    Toxic political environment, senior managers more concerned with the perpetuation of their position and perks than in the development of their businesses. Lack of unity of vision among senior managers and very little desire for cross-pollination. Fearful bureaucracy muzzled managers lest lawsuits be launched against company. Disconnect between preaching and practicing what was preached.

    Advice to Management

    A new business model, creative thinking on how to present different types of news and new management across the executive ranks with the departure of Jim Walton might successfully reposition the company. Relocate headquarters to NYC.
