    Pros

    The healthcare package is good.

    Cons

    Management does not take suggestions from lower staff on ways to improve efficiency.
    There really is no room for growth in the company. Many people stay in their positions for many years and there are not alot of openings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development younger staff so that they have more desire to stay with the company.

    Pros

    Good Brand Name to have on resume
    Good Benefits such as 401K, Medical, Dental, and Vision
    Salary about average with market

    Cons

    No room for Advancement
    Raises, if given, are below average
    Their idea of work/life balance is being available 24/7.
    Employees are treated like commodities, easily replaced or job sent overseas
    Management is a bunch of Yes men
    Lots of Back Stabbing and political manuevering

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage technical and professional development of employees.
    Take advantage of employee competencies.
    Hold your managers accountable for their teams' performance and give them and their teams the tools they need to do the job.

    $28M in annual compensation for someone specializing in broadcast schedules (no longer relevant) is a gross injustice.

    I worked at CBS Corp

    Pros

    I can't think of one as you will see in the following fields. However, in an effort to meet the 100 word minimum to post, I am forced to continue. I will say that if you can get in at CBS with the right people you may have a chance at succeeding. In other words it is extremely political.

    If you are the type of person who is comfortable making a so-called comfortable living and have a limited amount of motivation, you can do well at CBS just by going about your daily routine. Hard work is not rewarded, but being connected is.

    Cons

    The biggest downside was the politics, in fact it is such a political environment that it is all but impossible to even get a look at being promoted unless you're in with the right crowd, kissing a$%. Realizing that many companies are driven by politics, CBS was the most severe in my experience and frankly, work/productivity is secondary at best.

    Although strides are being made recently, I think (Cnet purchase, among other things), CBS is still very old style media, therefore it cannot help harboring such an environment. If you are a go-getter, I would suggest looking elsewhere for employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure that it's worth advising the current "leadership" team, at least not now, it would only fall on deaf ears.
