    Pros

    Benefits, environment and a way to do what you love and getting paid for it. Great Techwood campus and nice and friendly community.

    Cons

    Low salaries, not easy to do lateral moves or get promoted. Low salary increases and small bonuses despite of your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better reward system - spot bonus helps but not the best and another avenues where employees can share their ideas and possibly work in other departments.

    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation and great benefits. Smart, talented colleagues.

    Cons

    Sadly, several leadership changes and years of lay-offs have greatly diminished the once great culture and institutional knowledge within the organization. As a result, fear has become a primary motivator of behavior at a time when risk-taking is critical to be able to pivot in a rapidly changing marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to trust the knowledge and experience of employees and provide them with better avenues for communicating problems before they get out out of hand and opportunities before they're missed.

    Pros

    Very comfortable physical work environment. Feels stable, but the business is facing more challenges as TV viewing habits change.

    Cons

    Time Warner has changed the Southern culture at the Atlanta locations - and not for the better.

    Advice to Management

    The time is coming when your experience and talents won't be needed anymore. Save up.

    Stop trying to tout diversity and really concentrate on fixing the problem. The slate of programming is diverse and the employees should be reflective of that.
