I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Well-funded, attractive, secure facilities. Strong emphasis on life/work balance. Reasonable benefits and compensation

Cons

You will get very comfortable here regardless of your area of expertise, but if you are technical be prepared to for some serious stagnation of skills, absence of desire to innovate and negotiate well for your initial placement, because without serious connections it will be your long-term/permanent placement withing the company. Turner "talks the talk" about advancing with trends, socially, strategically and technical, but at the end of the day there is neither the will or support to actually implement any substantial change. Sadly, Turner, like most past-looking entertainment and media companies is watching the future race out of their grasp at an ever-accelerating pace.

Advice to Management

A lot of the decision-makers and even some folks in the trenches feel like they are just "running down the clock" on their careers. I get it, you're a few years from "cashing out" and don't want to rock the boat, but do you really want to be the marginalization of a potentially great company to be your legacy?

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

    Pros

    Benefits, BRGs, Perks, Ability to WFH, Community relations

    Cons

    A part of the larger Time Warner bureaucracy, still seems to be the "good ole boy" network, little room for advancement or career growth, stagnate as pond water, pay increases aren't what they used to be

    Advice to Management

    An atta-boy ever so often will go a long way in motivating employees, stop the promotion by favoritism advancements, get in the trenches every so often - even if just to observe, you might have a renewed appreciation for your staff.
