Pros

the people, benefits and opportunities to learn and grow. Great offices and perks. Decent salary but hard to move from corporate to a dicision because salaries at Corp are so much higher.

Cons

One word...politics. I have never been in a company where career sucess depended so largely on the relationships and positioning of oneself. They waste a lot of time and money on the wrong things and talk about employee satisfaction but don't really care to make changes that the employees tell management they want.

Advice to Management

Give your employees the opportunity to grow and work to create an environment where people are comfortable taking risks and expressing ideas. Communicate more. Dick Parsons was a great communicator and always talked to the employees. Jeff Bewkes came in made a ton of changes including cost cuts and never addressed the employee population. Rumors run wild in that place!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There seems to be good compensation, good benefits; lots of talented, hard-working colleagues and teamwork. Creative opportunities abound as company strives to expand brands and become more current and viable.

    Cons

    There seems to be a souring atmosphere as people fear for their jobs, as many have been cut in the last several years. Perhaps this lack of security helps to create the negative competition and unnecessary territoriality that exists among colleagues in some divisions. Some upper management lack social skills which makes employees feel ignored, unrecognized and unhappy. Hiring freezes mean jobs go unfilled; therefore, managers are overloaded, and can't run departments efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to and engage employees. Encourage and excite rather than impose fear. Strive to become familiar with changing needs of departments and individuals. Recognize talent and invest in it longer term.
