Company Culture

The culture is to get out as fast as you can

Support from management

No leadership, Sr.VP's are in over their head, VP's are clueless on day to day process and give conflicting direction

Career Development

No career development at all, talented people are not promoted or have the ability to work at their strengths. Expect your skills to rot away

Office / Work Environment

Parking lot has assigned spaces by work group, you park in the wrong space and your car get booted!

Work-Life Balance

No work/life balance at all! Expect to work 10+ hours a day, 6 days a week. Staff is shorthanded and overworked.

Job Security

Layoffs every 5-6 months

Challenging Work

On air product is remedial and grossly over produced

Inclusive / Diverse

If you are a butt kisser / brown noser or incompetent at your job you'll get promoted. Hard working and talented employees are always overlooked

Suggestions for improvement

  • Promote talented people, show the problem and disruptive employee the door, find the dead wood and put competent people in their place. Stop laying off people every 5-6 months. Take a hard look at the talented people who have left or TWC let go and see where they went.

What I like about the company

Not much, most feel they made a big mistake taking a job here. Most are trying to get out!

What I dislike about the company

Unbelievably inferior leadership starting at the top! Pres and Sr.VP's clueless, no experience working in a live day to day broadcast. Low or no viewership has the top brass sweating. Sr.VP's, VP and managers give conflicting direction, rarely is someone complimented for doing a good job. Sr.VP and VP do not let producers do their job, always hovering and arm chair quarterbacking. Very top heavy in management and thin at the worker level. When the VP's are out of the office, place runs smoother. If you're a brown noser you will get promoted, if you are incompetent at your job you'll get promoted. Talented people have left TWC and got out of the business, working for non-profits and PR firms, this place will sour you on broadcasting and you will regret working here.
