    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Trutv full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The work and culture was what made it so attractive. The pay was really great as well. A majority of people seemed to like what they were doing. It was gearing up to become a bigger network for comedy.

    Cons

    It's no longer the same company as it was. Ever since the acquisition, many were let go and many have left due to how poorly things are managed and how the big bosses up in Warner Media are treating truTV employees and past employees as the "redheaded step-child". A lot of internal, upper echelon drama is rampant due to Kevin Reilly's bad decision making and territorial approach. TNT and TBS are his main priorities and the rest including truTV are just bottom rung networks. He will never admit it, but truTV had better ratings than his two networks and spent less money than what he had lost.
