    I have been working at Time Warner (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits but seems to be declining every year. Relatively easy job with good work/life balance as maintaining status quo is preferred.

    Cons

    Top heavy organization with little room for growth leading to talent drain. Inconsistent performance review and promotion guidelines, more difficult to get a promotion in Corporate IT than other functions. Not innovative, more about keeping the lights on and often falling behind peers in technology adoption. Lots of red tape making it difficult to get things done leading to bad morale.

    Advice to Management

    Improve efficiency by removing unnecessary processes. Spend more resources on your employees rather than on contractors. Value your people and make them want to stay.

    I have been working at Time Warner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Produces some of the world's most popular media content; competitive compensation and benefits; flexibility to transition into new roles; leadership varies by department but mine have been very considerate of career goals and development; above average cafe food; parent company of major entertainment leaders HBO, Warner Bros., and Turner; great location (next to Central Park).

    Cons

    "Old school," bureaucratic corporate culture; not many millennial employees in Corporate and so organizational attitude is very traditional. Have cut perks like tuition reimbursement, yoga, pilates, and kickboxing classes, massages and acupunture, etc. Too often confused with Time Warner Cable.

    I haven't seen benefits like this in years! This company is very focused on your success.

    Cons

    The schedule may not be for you, but if you are flexible they eventually can accommodate you.
