I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Smart coworkers, liberal benefits, well known brand names, work on latest technology
Ability to impact and be directly involved in forming current and pop culture
Great company to have n your resume, especially as Atlanta becomes more of a media town

Cons

Tendency to be pigeonholed at current level, promotions based on who, not what, you know
Some technical management staff seem to have been promoted for their technical, not people, skills
Company has been known to do large layoffs in the past, though more recent layoffs have occurred in very small chunks

    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Turner has great benefits and has often been listed in various best companies for mom's listings. We get great perks and discounts, even on large ticket items such as cars. There is also room for growth and movement laterally within the company.

    Cons

    Every large company has its share of red tape and Turner is no exception.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what it is like to be on the front lines. Remember that part of the job is to remove obstacles.

    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.
