    I worked at Time Warner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well known publishing products, such as Time, Fortune, Sports Illustrated. Collegial culture, good benefits, conveniently located in mid-town Manhattan, largest publishing company in the US

    Cons

    Got complacent, fell behind, lost its edge, did not get ahead of the digital medium, still has not integrated print and digital sales

    I have been working at Time Warner full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pros and cons all depend on department in which you work. Some departments are not thought of as highly in the organization while others seem to be the workhorses that get things done and are highly respected (though that doesn't mean more bonus).
    Pretty good benefits though they have declined from a few years back when they were great.
    Interesting work product and engaging environment. Actually believe that management knows what they are doing with respect to much of the organization as a whole.
    As long as you don't suck at your job, you can have a very long career here.

    Cons

    As long as you don't suck, you can have a very long career here. Some managers have no business being in the positions that they are in and are doing a disservice to those who report to them.
    It can be moderately difficult to move between departments and generally it is quite difficult to move within divisions given how much each division is steeped in its own culture. Unless you work for Corporate, you work for Turner, HBO, Time Inc, WB, not Time Warner.
    People aren't necessarily promoted when they are ready to serve in the next higher role and have demonstrated that they can. Generally speaking promotions only happen once a year no matter what has changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The walls between each division need to be broken down. Each division does not operate in its own little fiefdom anymore and that culture needs to be broken because it makes them feel like you are attacking them when you're looking for information because you are Corporate and they are XYZ.
    Promote people when they're ready. Shouldn't matter if it happens in March or November instead of only in February regardless of changing responsibilities.
