Pros

-It's a very popular company, and looks GREAT on a resume.
-Turner Broadcasting includes so many television brands, I particularly work for CNN and it's plethora of networks.

Cons

-The compensation is the lowest in the television industry for a global media organization
-The line level management prefers not to communicate well with it's teams.

Advice to Management

As an industry we are the lowest compensated employees on the totem-pole yet we work hard to make our brand, our content and our product the strongest in the industry. Our company needs to restructure its pay scales and be considerate of the workers who make CNN such a popular and sustainable product. The cost of housing in Washington, DC where I work and live doubled by 201% in 2005; with over 10 years if outstanding industry experience my annual compensation shows nothing of it.

    Pros

    Turner has by far some of the best benefits in Atlanta whether it's with my 401k, health benefits or discounts with other businesses.

    Cons

    It seems that in order to really get ahead, you almost have to make your contacts then leave Turner and come back in the higher position.

    Advice to Management

    I think Senior Management needs to do a slightly better job at promoting within
