A well grounded forward thinking company providing opportunities for a good career.
As a project coordinator my day was filled with meetings with internal and external partners. TWC is eager to make the right changes to accomplish good business decisions. My co-workers were motivated to improve their services to their customers. The most difficult part of the job was filtering through all of the innovative ideas that was provided by the team members - they all had great ideas and I enjoyed hearing everyone of them.
Pros
discounted services in franchised areas

Overall Time Warner is a good company, however with most nationwide companies there are several challenges
Time Warner is a good company on a daily basis there are many things I enjoy like profitability of the company and some of the benefits of the company. The major drawback is the middle management of the company being stuck in the 9 to 5 or punch the time clock mentality.
Pros
profitable company, great employee benefits, pension
Cons
flexibility

Good job
It's a good job, not a great job. It has flaws like any other company but they change direction as a company many many times. I will like consistency. So far, it is good but it won't last as there is a major change on the horizon.
Pros
Great work environment
Cons
Inconsistent environment and planning by TWC

Productive and a fun office environment
A typical work day for me is QC'ing, entering and processing orders receieved from the sales agents. Inter acting with team members and sales agents to resolve issues and or questions concerning the customers contract. Resolve all rejected orders in a timely fashion to ensure customer satisfaction.
Pros
Free lunches, free training classes, lots of opportunities for advancement

Targeted during layoffs
I used to really enjoy working at TWC. Then they switched me to another group during a re-org back in 2011. I was taken out of a position that was perfect for me, and where I had earned all my company awards including a yearly MVP trip winner to Puerto Rico. Switched me to a group where I basically had to learn the job from scratch with minimal guidance.

Sitting in a cubicle environment behind another loud employee that was constantly talking and always taking personal calls, was a distraction that contributed to prohibiting me from performing my job to the best of my ability. Advised management about the situation, but it took several months before the situation was finally addressed.


Had another major re-org recently (company is restructuring from 3 Regions to 1 Region), including projects being cancelled. I was let go, in addition to other really good employees, including Managers and Directors. During layoffs, if you are making a decent salary, you become that much more expendable. But laying off an exemplary employee that won a yearly MVP trip (214 employees out of about 50,000 for that year) is absolutely brilliant!!


The sad thing is that there are really good people working at TWC. But some projects get started and are never completed. Management has a tendency to work in their silos and attend meetings on a regular basis, without really paying attention to what's going on in the workplace. Meeting due dates and delivery is not a key for success there. Millions are spent on specific projects, and if a certain project gets cancelled because the majority
