    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent starting salary and good benefits. Campus amenities are great. Tools and resources available to all employees are really helpful!

    Cons

    Yearly raises are barely keeping up with cost of living. Very little opportunity for promotion or transfers. Culture is extremely political, meaning the end goal for most is saving face rather than working efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    -Management should receive anonymous performance reviews from subordinates. There are too many managers who are unwilling to hear constructive feedback without retaliating.
    -Potential bumps in bonuses aren’t bad, but being more willing to hire/promote from within would be a better incentive to stay with the company. Don’t ask current employees to be loyal to the Turner if you aren’t loyal to them.

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very fun environment, a lot of young people, learn a lot in a short time

    Cons

    Extremely rigid - if you need to come in after 9:15am, you must take a full PTO day. Management is very set in their ways and not open to any type of feedback. Very few opportunities for real growth past the planner level. Company is not innovating or growing- very stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! We have valuable opinions. Being more flexible will make all your employees happier. Be willing to work with us to find solutions to problems rather than just following the strict company line.

    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good health benefits, good vacation days, paternity & maternity leave offered.

    Cons

    There are better companies to work for

    Advice to Management

    Look more into why some departments have such a high turnover and pay close attention to which lower level managers have higher turnovers than others. People dont leave companies they leave managers.
