      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Weather Channel full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      They are losing market share. The way they treat employees, I'm glad

      Cons

      They paint a great picture but management does not support. They get you to accept then the dating is over and the BS flies. The turnover says it all. I wish I never joined the firm it has ruined the solid work history and reputation I had with my clients and advertisers.

      Advice to Management

      The property is living in the stone age. Don't pull people with families out of jobs. Hire people cutting their teeth.

      I have been working at Weather Channel full-time

      Pros

      Coworkers are pleasant to be around and it is a tight knit community. People working in different offices still feel well connected.

      Cons

      Hard work and doing an exceptional job is not rewarded. Instead you are expected to pick up the slack of team members who are falling behind since it is a team effort. Promotions are not given to those who excel but rather those who complain about not being promoted or are given randomly.

      Advice to Management

      Reward those who are doing well and be more stern with those who are not.

      Pros

      Us "low level" folks are great people

      Cons

      Where do I begin? Management keeps creating fake new VP levels Too many upper level managers need to be shown the door CEO is clueless to all the problems Way too many middle managers (like 6 VPs and countless others) Pay is so messed up and unfair Management thinks they know everything and can't take criticism or open to suggestions Management is always disrespectful Management is too "CNN" Pay raises are terrible...

      Advice to Management

      Fire 1/2 the management and hire more lower level people. Actually listen and take action for your employees when they know what's wrong. Create goals and stick to them... you can't do that right now. David Kenny isn't in charge as listed here but David Schull (former CEO) and owner Byron Allen need to actually hear their employees problems. Dont listen to the executives hiding the truth.

      I worked at Weather Channel full-time

      Pros

      Comfortable place to work, relaxed environment, friendly & diverse people

      Cons

      Lack of opportunities for advancement and leadership. Management plays favorites and overlooks top players, causing some of the best talent to leave. Constant restructuring. Teams are understandably dejected and unmotivated. Questionable hiring standards and lack of managing those who are not performing up to standard, causing team members to pick up co-workers' slack.

      Advice to Management

      Improve your hiring process, actually manage teams, strive towards unified goals and make objectives clear to all employees

      I worked at Weather Channel full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      The TWC family up to the IBM acquisition was a great family to be a part of. I learned so much from great people.

      Cons

      IBM is great, but TWC has not wanted to integrate. Lacking leadership and direction. People leave or are forced out every week. The good people have moved into IBM or left.

      Advice to Management

      Embrace IBM and promote it. Break up the leadership cliques and respect people.
