Excellent Work Environment
Radio Broadcast Meteorologist (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 13, 2017
Most people who work at The Weather Channel never leave. It is a career goal for many and has great job security. That's also a problem because it leaves very little room for advancement for new people coming in. Hard to take leave in the summer months during Hurricane season.
Pros
Casual dress attire, job security, free parking
Cons
Hard to get time off during summer months

The Weather Channel Experience
Programmatic Manager, Digital Products (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 14, 2017
Working in the programmatic department was very intense. There was only 7 people on the team at first and 1 month after I started we were down to 4 people. By the time I left there were three people.
Pros
Big name company
Cons
Poor management team. Very self serving. Do not care about employee growth or mentoring.

Internship (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 30, 2017
A very professional environment. A place where I was able to complete my internship and get a real feel of what a day at the office is like. It was exciting to learn of a typical work day and have important duties to get done.

Cool company, not much growth opportunity
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 11, 2017
The company is undergoing a general transition which does not provide a ton of upward mobility and growth opportunity for its employees. However, in a period of growth, this company is fun, exciting, and dynamic. Most of the people are wonderful.

A thriving and exciting workplace.
Broadcast System Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 22, 2016
A constantly evolving system made this a very interesting job. Renovations of studios and control rooms, research and development of delivery systems, and implementation of new technologies provided perpetual learning opportunities.

Ok place to work
Account Manager, Distributions (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 14, 2016
The company has an okay culture. There was some division in my team and the employees felt a sense of uncertainty about the future. The position I was hired for was terminated less than a year after it was created which was very perplexing.

Administative Assistant to VP Radio (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 18, 2015
I really enjoyed working for the Weather Channel. Very friendly, yet hardworking environment. Great professionals there. I felt that there was a very good work/life balance...very well-balanced. Benefits are excellent. The Weather Channel has a very nice corporate atmosphere. If I was still in Atlanta I would definitely love to work for them again.
Pros
Uniqueness of training and prize drawings etc (I don't know if they do that anymore)
Cons
Nothing to complain about

To help "support the community" yo don't get paid a lot.....
Integration/Operations Project Manager (contract) (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 7, 2015
You really have to want to give back to the community if you work at OCPS because you don't get paid much for your "labor of love."

Great culture and place to work
Lead Sales Tax and Billing Accountant (Former Employee) –  Andover, MAOctober 9, 2015
Nice place, but only have a chance to work with immediate department and no other departments seem to want to communicate.
The management does not have time to train new employees or have time to answer questions or want to make any improvement recommendations. They seem to be happy working harder instead of working smarter when ideas for change are made.
Pros
Once a month free lunch
Cons
Too busy to take any breaks except lunch - long day

Passionate People, Questionable Management
Employee (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 1, 2015
Nobody knows the weather better than the experts at The Weather Channel. You will learn a lot, but efforts to improve the company's workflow are consistently hampered by endless, unproductive meetings and a cadre of inept middle managers afraid to make decisions that would have meaningful impact on the company.
Pros
Paid time off

Excellent in many ways, lacking in a few
Business Intelligence Developer (Current Employee) –  Marietta, GAJuly 22, 2015
The Work/Life balance in this company is much better than others that I have worked with. The culture is amazingly welcoming and open and the benefits are very good.

Where it lacks is on direction, often you will be left without a Corporate Strategy and as in any media business things change very frequently. Be prepared to adjust and survive.
Pros
Work/Life Balance
Cons
Lack of Leadership

Passionate Company with Good People
Producer (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJune 18, 2015
Everyday there's a new weather story, for the website sometimes it's not that weather related, but we look for fun, fresh content to keep the viewers happy. I pitch ideas, find video, edit video, publish finished pieces and monitor statistics of website.

Coworkers are great. Like Family.

Management micro manages.
Severe weather events come often so vacation planning is hard.
Layoffs frequent.
Management makes you feel more like a number while coworkers make you feel valued.

Hardest part: keeping up morale and feeling valued
Most enjoyable: watching the success of the company and covering cool stories.
Pros
Good people, passionate atmosphere, good pay
Cons
Management, Job Security, Overtime
