    I worked at Turner Broadcasting as an intern

    Pros

    People who work there are really nice, Office is really nice, they're trying to change things up and be more innovative. The staff is approachable and intern program is pretty good. The food is subsidized so it's pretty cheap and the view over central park is amazing.

    Upper level management is very approachable to interns and will take you out to coffee/lunch without a blink. weekly intern activities and lectures were great. Got to see a lot of the different opportunities at turner and got to learn a ton about the company. This internship is also paid and there is a summer long intern project where you get to present in front of all the execs and VPs which is great experience.

    Also a bunch of employee appreciation events, good training and overall good vibes. Bis casual dress with casual Fridays, and summer Fridays are half days

    Cons

    intern program would be better if we had 1-2 mentors we worked with the whole summer, instead of trading people off every week. Some of the people I shadowed seemed really busy/forced into working with me when they didn't want to or didn't come into the office on days that I was supposed to be working with them. (other people were super enthusiastic about sharing their work with me! Just wish I had more of these people)

    being with a different exec every week didnt give me a long enough time to really work with them on any long projects, basically just enough to get to know them and do some simple clerical work then on to the next exec. Glad I got to meet a lot of people in the office but wish I had a few things to do that were more long term.

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time

    Pros

    Working in a fast paced Broadcast environment, CNN, TBS, Adult Swim, etc.

    Cons

    As the ratings go, so does the company fortunes, as there are more and more cord cutters abandoning Cable for streaming services with specific choice and lower monthly rates.

    Advice to Management

    Don't claim to be diverse, and inclusive, then air a show like "Bait Car". It shows a Cognitive Dissonance between the stated corporate ideaology of inclusiveness and Donald Trump's " Make America Great Again " as I am sure after "The Apprentice" "Bait Car" was his 2nd favorite program to watch after a long hard day of profiling Mexican people.

    Pros

    Great equity, with established and recognizable brands

    Cons

    Managers don't know (or don't care) about leading, zero focus on developing employees

    Advice to Management

    Less managing up, attempts at simple "check the box" solutions for morale do more harm than good..take some time to actually talk to your teams without yelling (and more than once or twice a year)
