    Pros

    Great staff, comfortable break room, the computers had very few issues, very team oriented.

    Cons

    don't get sick often. They pay you to show up, so when you don't... you get the picture. Otherwise great company!

    Advice to Management

    Work on your training format for new hires. My whole group out of training were so unprepared for the customer side of the operation. Though the allotted time for "nesting" made up for it.

    I worked at Time Warner full-time

    Pros

    Atlanta location was a nice place to be for this company. CNN Center placed me in the center of downtown with access to recreation and entertainment. The building was beautiful. It was like being in your own town because there were about 2500 employees at the time.

    Cons

    Unless you are very well connected, do not expect to move up if you get a job here. Layoffs are fairly frequent. It's the most political place I've ever worked. I recall being part of a group where we sat in on interviews and evaluated applicants. It was so obvious that the choice of who to hire had already been made by the director when she walked in with one of those resumes that included a photo. A couple of the office lackeys chimed in that this was the candidate to hire. Interestingly the candidate seemed bored during the interview and wasn't the best of the group. She was hired anyway....

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying lip service to career advancement. All of the mentor groups and career workshops are just a cover. Most advancement is purely political. And almost everyone knows this. The company will break its on rules about advancing people in order to reward some relationship. I've seen good people fired with little reason. And management will simply claim those employees left on their own.
