    I worked at Turner Sports full-time

    Pros

    Amongst the best co-workers I've worked with in my career. Very talented. The benefits packages are very generous. Innovation is rewarded.

    Cons

    Some concern about long-term future in Atlanta and the impact of declining TV viewership. Hesitation to address Very ad sales-driven.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward innovation. Recognize the angst amongst the employee base.

    I worked at Turner Sports full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good insurance and benefits. People were generally friendly, mutually supportive and team-oriented. Immediate management was protective.

    Cons

    It's all "operations," fall, winter, and spring. Whenever there's a game on, it's game-on!! Very reactive, with lots of single points of failure lurking, constant scrambling.

    Advice to Management

    Consider organizing your computing towards smart automation, and stop relying on so many fingers kept in the dykes (careers built on it?).

    Pros

    A lot of good people. Chance to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Seems like there are too many layers of management. Sometimes it's unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive pay to make up for living expenses.

    I have been working at Turner Sports (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself is fun. I can't say that I didn't have a good time while working here.

    Cons

    Fun seemed to be all that was offered. This company knows where it stands, and treats its employees with the attitude that they should be appreciative for being allowed to walk through the doors.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip and respect each and every employee. No matter what. We don't owe you anything.


  6. "Community manager"

    Pros

    Meet good people, recognizable brand, professional athletes/talent very friendly

    Cons

    Lower level people are sometimes lost in the fray. Vertical movement is very difficult.

    I worked at Turner Sports part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy money. Working part-time, I found it easy to make additional funds. They have great security there, which is a plus. Even if you get into the building when you're not authorized, you won't be in there long before you are found out and removed.

    Cons

    If you're not a full-time employee, you are practically invisible. If they make a mistake with your paycheck, they feel no urgency to correct it. I had one supervisor, who erred, tell me, "You're SOL" -- for a mistake I could prove was not mine. But since I was only a part-timer ...

    Advice to Management

    You need to understand that your part-time help can be every bit as valuable as your full-time help. In theory, I know they believe that. But in actual practice, they do not. Treating one group as better than another is a good way to create unnecessary division. At the end of the day, you're supposed to be putting together a cohesive unit.

    I worked at Turner Sports (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people, strong work-life balance, lots of fun perks/celebs/athletes. Professional environment encouraging growth, ideas, suggestions, and personal career goals. Co-workers = Friends for life. Compensation is on-point and good. A+ morale ... approachable upper management that cares about developing staff strengths.

    Cons

    None. Turner is a great place to work that prepares you to succeed there or any where in the industry thereafter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job.

    I have been working at Turner Sports full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the people are generally really easy to work with. You work on really high profile stuff, so your work is never ignored.

    Cons

    The organization is really sluggish and tends to protect its cable business to the detriment of its digital business. It's going to have to change, but it's slowing turning this aircraft carrier.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. If they can't be trusted, fire them.

    I worked at Turner Sports (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really enjoyed my 18 months with Turner Sports, always something new coming and great Agile/SCRUM team to work with. Always an open mind at the managerial level, great project managers, and the special events (draft, season start, playoffs) were always fun to work.

    Cons

    Re-organization caused drop in team strength from 6 to 2, pushing a lot of work offshore. Didn't really work out so well.

    Advice to Management

    Know where your staffing strengths are and support appropriately!
