    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time

    Pros

    Great perks, including a great gym membership. Medical benefits could be much better.

    Cons

    It's not all it's cracked up to be. The work atmosphere that appears to be all friendly is just a facade. Either kiss up to upper management or look for a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Treat hard-working employees better.

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, well established company, values promoting from within, many training and development opportunities. Company invests a lot of time and money in trying to develop its culture and rewarding its employees. Values creativity and building relationships

    Cons

    ongoing change and restructuring. While company has many loyal long term employees, they struggle to retain new talent. There is a feeling of instability and fear of job loss that permeates the culture. Salary is also not as competitive as other companies. Some feel there is too much value placed on building relationships. This can discourage results driven and talented employees who may not excel in that area.

    Advice to Management

    continue to work towards a more sustainable model so you can provide more stability for your loyal employees. Honor your legacy. Challenge your stock holders to think about the values the company wants to promote and the mark you want to leave on your employees and the world.
