"Decreasing pay annually way below avg. Sales & staff severely underappreciated."

What do you like about working at Time Warner?

"A lot of experienced support and sales people do work at this company and the offices are nice. In house production is convenient but they're way overworked."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you're looking for a big company to put on your resume and just want to get experience and/or really just need benefits then this company is for you. The support people and other reps are nice but, when your office isn't at budget the LSM's breathe down your back daily - ruling by fear. There's way too much reporting, paperwork and meetings for the money. Constant training to learn the crapload of new products being introduced. Confusing to the clients who just want TV ads and that's it. They don't have wage adjustments for those working in more expensive environments like NY, LA, either. Don't believe the BS about how much money you can make - only a select few are making over $100 per year out of the whole company. They want you to sell products that are new and they haven't even been proven to work. A lot of the new products frankly just don't work but you have to sell all the products each one has a budget. There are so many cable networks that unless an advertiser is spending over $10-20k per month they don't see any results. The company has no ROI information for clients at all so be prepared to avoid that question. I guarantee the great reviews you've seen on this site are submitted by upper mgmt to make TW look good."

What don't you like about working at Time Warner?

"The base is way below industry standards... around $20,000-22,000 per year for advertising sales. The commissions now are varied. Each rep is paid different - we still haven't figured out how they determine the rate on each individual. Anywhere from 5.5-7.2%. As your budget increases your commission is lowered."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Pay your reps a least the industry average wage which is $40k-$50k base, and raise the commission to at least 10-15%!!! Quit the fear/scare tactic when it comes to motivating sales people, it's counterproductive. Losing a lot of subs to competitors-perhaps you should concentrate on that."
