    I worked at CNN full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Diverse teams and friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Support for those discriminated against who speak up is non-existent and which goes against what the company claims to represent. After losing a prior contract due to workplace bullying and discrimination by a former VP, I started at CNN thinking I would be at less risk of this type of behaviour due to the fact I had previously worked for parent company, Turner, who had a strong policy on allowing people to speak up. After my managers becoming aware of my case within 1 week I was relentlessly bullied by my boss to attempt to undermine my abilities, and within 3 weeks was fired for 'not having the right characteristics'.
