    I have been working at CBS Corp

    Pros

    The pay is very good for people starting out, although I have coworkers who would disagree. TV and entertainment are industries that are here to stay, so you won't be in too much danger of being laid off -- unless you make too much or are a per diem employee. Where I work, there are quite a few perks and freebies, but those have dropped in the past few years. My supervisors have for the most part been very accomodating of my requests, but getting reliable talent in the door and staying has been difficult recently. It feels like we're constantly training.

    Cons

    The organization is so big, communication can be lax.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be better organized. Communicate more with your subordinates. Don't be afraid to hand off responsibilities.

    While I find my overall experience at CBS rewarding the company could do more to retain ambitious employees.

    I have been working at CBS Corp (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a prestigious company and the work is challenging and engaging.

    Cons

    They keep people on per diem status for years and you're lucky if you can even get a staff position or steady work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for younger employees to move up and actively work to develop a career path for them within the company so they have something to aspire towards.

    Pros

    Lots of things to fix IT wise

    Cons

    The management team is very immature, and unwilling to work on fixing deferred maintenance IT assets

    Better allocate realistic IT budget to meet projects
