I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great people! Great benefits. Competitive salary. Locations everywhere. HQ in Atlanta has great cost of living.

Cons

As with any large company, politics. Slow to react to changes in the market. Do not buy back unused vacation days. Given the 24/7 nature of the business, it is difficult to use all of your vacation days.

Advice to Management

Streamline yourselves and oust upper management that do not add value or stand in the way of progress for the sake of their own working groups.

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Exciting Industry
    Opportunity to move around and do different things

    Cons

    Terrible Finance Organization
    Old School Approach to People Management and Development
    Very difficult to transition into new roles in the Finance Organization

    Advice to Management

    Your Finance Organization is stale and borderline unethical. You need to integrate new talent in - especially at the top. Quit worrying about CPA credentials and start looking for people who have the capacity to understand business and the impact of what they do on other parts of the company. You have people who have spent their entire careers there leading the organization, and they are old school and stale.
