    Great people, unthoughtful positioning

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery approachable upper management and you can really learn whatever you set out to learn. Everyone is respectful of your work-life balance

    ConsYour salary is very low compared to others in similar positions. In addition there are positions created that all have very similar job descriptions that can range from coordinator to manager. People that have been around forever hold on to work and can make promotion within the company EXTREMELY hard. Have to claw to get promoted and a raise in this place. It also doesn't help that there is no uniformity between the companies so no one has a good idea what anyone does outside of upper management.

    AMC Networks is a great company to work for, supportive staff and fun company.

    Planner (Current Employee)

    ProsIt has a very creative environment, where there is room to grow. With AMC's recent success, the company seems young and just constantly growing.

    ConsPay is not that great, and if you are on a small network, there is a higher chance you cannot grow in the field you are looking to grow in.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Wonderful and friendly Atmosphere at AMC Networks

    Research Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsI work for AMC Networks part-time and it's a very friendly atmosphere. All the tools you need to succeed are handed to you on a silver platter. Even has a nobody I had my own office (extremely glorified cubical; image an office with no window). Very comfortable hours too.

    ConsVery large company and Rainbow Media owns several departments that don't intermingle (except at the top). Not really a con but it's the closest thing I can think of. Especially since each floor is newly renovated (as of spring 2012).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Intern Experience

    Intern (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsAMC NETWORKS can be best descried as very friendly and wonderful atmosphere for work, even for interns. The supervisors were very friendly and gave great feedbacks for all the work I did

    ConsThe workers, most of them, in general seemed to be little less diverse compared to other places. But I guess that's not really too much of a con assuming maybe the whole industry is like that.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement has a great open door policy. Our culture committee is the best, always planning fun things for employees. great benefits

    ConsBecause we are a broadcast facility there is a hugh amount of stress that goes along with that.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
