I worked at CNN full-time

Pros

I was given a lot of responsibility, very quickly -- more so than I've heard one gets at other television news organizations. The bureau in which I worked was growing fast, and anyone who showed any competence got promoted within a short time.

Cons

The flip side to the Pros -- fast growth, lots of responsibility handed out -- is that sometimes someone is given more responsibility than they're ready for. If you have to work with someone like that, you'll find yourself picking up their slack. But again, if you see that as an opportunity, it's not really even a Con.

    Pros

    The benefits and perks are competitive as is the salary. You have the opportunity to be promoted within the organization and seek out your specialization within the industry.

    Cons

    There is a culture of relationship building and networking and at times this is a positive. However, you have to continue to be strategic of your network and at times this could be a good and bad thing depending on your alliances, well it is after all TV.

    I worked at CNN full-time

    Pros

    Amazing history, tremendous brand, the mission of giving the world the news and information it needs is still there, somewhere. Fantastic people, smart, and who generally take care of one another. You feel like you are part of something bigger than yourself.

    Cons

    The company culture has changed. Internal politics have gotten worse. Ratings are not where they should be. Concerns that new management seems to care less and less about taking care of employees. Definite split between New York and Atlanta.
