    Small enough to grow and have influence professionally and start your career, but don't stay too long

    I have been working at CBS Interactive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to get your feet wet in the internet/new media industry at a mature, well-established company
    CBS Interactive is small enough (~2000 worldwide) to be influential at the manager or higher level and to move up if aggressive
    Ideal San Francisco location, close to variety of transportation options and restaurants/bar/stores
    Great, fun folks to work with
    Good work/life balance
    Monthly company happy hours with free beer, wine, and food
    Ping pong table, arcade games, shuffleboard
    Company break room with discounted Peet's coffee
    Paid shutdown between Christmas Eve and New Year's usually for most employees BUT in 2012 NYE was a work day (not sure if they may cut back on this in the future)

    Cons

    A lot of folks punch in and out each day and are not necessarily passionate about their jobs
    Shadow/sniper-like layoffs in the past year: small groups have been laid off here and there in the past year, replacements not always hired for those who leave. As a result, various teams feel under-resourced and overwhelmed.
    HR recruiting team is also under-resourced and recruiting tools are out of date to get the best candidates in the door
    Products and sites still feel out of date despite the fact that product is purported to be top of the management team's agenda (e.g., Fantasy sports, CBS.com video player, lack of personalization on CNET)
    Revenue and site growth is not as robust as other similar internet companies
    CBSi is only a small percentage of CBS Corp's overall revenue so has little influence on the CBS Corp overall
    CBS Corporate is old and stodgy (pdf newsletters are emailed out, corporate benefits and expense form sites are extremely out of date)
    Very little is keeping the most talented folks from leaving; benefits are not on par with other internet companies in the area
    Undermarket salary unless they try to match a competing job offer
    Significant salary increases only come with promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop simply acting like the new stepdad who tries to impress employees with new toys and silliness and actually get people motivated in an authentic way
    Be clear of the company vision and be more open about the company strategy
    Stop bulldozing over employees to get your agenda done. A lot of your business decisions make sense for the company in the long run but the execution against those decisions has been a nightmare
    Build world-class products and site rather than just talk about it
    Get a a real employee evaluation process in place

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
