    Pros

    Clear directives on the work that needs to be done. Management does a good job of fulfilling the mandates from corporate.

    Cons

    The recent transistiond and turmoil with Time Warner and Turner has hurt morale around the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees as motivated as possible. They have had a hard time with the change in management and morale is low.

    Lots of perks, great working environment.

    Lots of re-orgs, employees don't tend to stay long.

    Stop with the re-orgs every month!

    Pros

    Location, health benefits, gym, culture

    Cons

    Upper level management communicates that they are transparent, but employees still feel like they don't know what's going on in the grand scheme of things. Environment and morale really changed after Turner 2020 layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the complaints of employees. Especially in regards to their direct supervisor. People do not leave companies, they leave supervisors.

    Pros

    Good benefits including 401K and PTO for 24 X 7 employees. Holiday time of is not guaranteed for 24 X 7 employees. But fair

    Cons

    Not enough employees. Management is afraid to hire someone because they might fire them some department are running with 5 to 10 people missing going on 2 years but won't close the positions.

    Advice to Management

    Just hire someone if they have to be let go let go of poor preforming employees.

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My experience as a Turner Broadcasting Systems employee was nothing but positive. The benefits were more than competitive with the top 20 companies in the country. I received so much free training; computer skills to self improvement classes. There were also fun incentives like Turner Day at Six Flags, the Braves, the Hawks. Turner Volunteer Day was fun and filled with incentives, not to mention the retirement plans offered. It was great

    Cons

    Some departments may have less people friendly managers. But they are not reflective of the company as a whole.
