    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Wonderful people, feels like family
    - Diverse workforce
    - Great benefits
    - Very nice campuses
    - Active in the Atlanta community

    Cons

    - Too many layoffs
    - Running too lean in many departments
    - Unclear future in Atlanta

    Advice to Management

    The changes to be more consumer-focused instead of cable company and advertiser was refreshing. We are creating great content. BUT, the 2012 layoffs were purse reactive. Lots of fat was trimmed, but lots of good people were lost. Going back to the well just a year or so later and wiping out a low of newly brought in people because of delays in the AT&T merger made even long-term employees very fearful. John Martin was brought in to sell the company, which he did. Now the company feels entirely directed far from Atlanta and I fear that the culture of the company won't survive the changes.

    Pros

    For the size of it, Turner is very forward thinking in terms of technology. Great people, great ideas to work on.

    Cons

    Nothing really, their benefits are not what they used to be, but I guess thats the case with most of the companies these days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inventing, focus on content as well as delivery.
