    Pros

    Great programing. They are on the cusp of doing something great.

    Cons

    AMCN tends to not strategize for the long term, but only looking at what must happen now. Lots of misused opportunities due to old world culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in fresh blood for upper management in on order to refresh their current thinking. Not to treat their brands too preciously.

    I worked at Rainbow Media full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    AMC Networks was an exciting place to work. Challenging at times but only because they wanted to get the best out of you. You can craft your own career path and take risks and know that the company has your back.

    Cons

    As with many large companies, communication sometimes get bottlenecked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less Process and Red-Tape

    Pros

    Great corporate culture with dedicated, hardworking employees. Growing international presence through acquisition and strategy. People are excited about the shows that are on air.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted. As with any large company, change is cumbersome and slow.

    Pros

    Loved AMCN. Super friendly environment, you work hard and they reward you well, they make you feel appreciated which is awesome and rare. I loved it there and my boss was a great mentor and still is to this day.

    Cons

    If you are a coordinator, it is difficult to grow. The execs have been there for years and years and don't really move from there. A lot of people end up leaving to grow elsewhere. My starting salary as a manager at a different network was well more over some managers that were at AMCN for years.

    Pros

    Work closely (proximity) with senior management. Nice non-pretentious open door policy. Friendly atmosphere. Very understanding of work/life balance.

    Cons

    Many stagnant employees on all levels makes it difficult to move up as there are not many job openings. Some clash between departments.

    I worked at Rainbow Media full-time

    Pros

    Hard working staff, high expectations that equal great results, approachable upper management, excellent benefits and perks. For the most part, most everyone is willing to teach you if you're looking to learn.

    Cons

    Some big egos in middle management, can have some damaging office politics and sometimes very "clique-y". If someone doesn't like you personally, some people have a hard time putting that dislike aside and therefor some people are treated differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You do a great job of being approachable. The company is successful because of the clear goals you have set.
