    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time

    Pros

    Fun video product line, beautiful campus, gourmet cafeteria, relaxed working environment. Your experience will largely be determined by the care and competence of your hiring manager.

    Cons

    Disorganized company. Decisions with respect to organizational structure (team size, reporting structure, etc) seem poorly thought out. Poor role definition leads to role conflict. Ineffective matrix structure with PMO organization. Always expecting people to do more in chronically understaffed environments. Lack of care for employee overwork or burnout. Leaders busy with political positioning. Culture expressed is not culture demonstrated. Found to be stressful work environment - I experienced some people being fickle and complaining and nitpicking one another. Inside team relationships were good but not between teams.

    Advice to Management

    Please take above shortcomings seriously.
