    Pros

    Awesome benefits. Pto, medical, just overall benefits. Management is advocate for putting family firsr.

    Cons

    Management is ole school.....keep your head down, do not offer suggestions, and no feedback. Company encourages creativity and utilize open door policy but their management team does not believe in where the company is company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting rid of the under dogs and cut the heads so the body will follow.

    I worked at Turner Broadcasting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a good work-life balance. The PTO and benefits are good and the yearly bonus structures are great. Good place to have a long career.

    Cons

    The work can get pretty stagnant and there is not a lot of variety in the main campuses.

    Not a con... if you like 9-5 work with no travel, then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    The 20-20 cuts were too deep. Maybe engage with your teams at a grass roots level to see what is truly going on.

    "Antiquated Practices..."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    A host of talented people. Beautiful facility. Great places to eat and revive are stationed throughout the campus. They offer personal development courses for employees.

    Cons

    A host of talented people in misplace positions. For example really great video editors and graphic designers are not working in studios. They are employed in other areas such as log management and broadcast operational control. There are micro shots of racism throughout the company departments. Very difficult to be promoted if you're not in with the clique. The company is also slow to upgrade the technology needed to stay competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Add racial sensitivity courses to management team. Consider ways to celebrate employees upon doing good work. Upgrade technological equipment.

    I have been working at Turner Broadcasting full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Time Off policies
    Healthcare

    Cons

    Where you work and who you work with are the luck of the draw.
    Middle management comprised of a mix of amazingly talented people and teams or on the other end bullies with some talent with not much by way of management skills. I have just under a decade of experience with the first kind and am experiencing the second kind first hand.

    Advice to Management

    All In and No Fear is a great slogan and I bought into it.
    People leave due to inept bosses and managers not companies.
