    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CBS Corp (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Teammates Stock given as bonus on yearly basis

    Cons

    Terrible Management (Changed Managers 3x in under 1 year and had 3 Director/VP within that time) Technologically Clueless Upper IT Management Very Political and Siloed Extremely Hypocritical No Upward Mobility - Claim to want to promote from within and never followed through

    Advice to Management

    Dont hire someone and empower them to speak up about issues that need to be fixed and then ignore and punish that employee for bringing issues up and being persistent in trying to resolve.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Coworkers are fun Corporate benefits (medical, dental)

    Cons

    Bad office culture- frown upon taking full lunch break, sick days, etc. Management is in shambles. There is no real leader and the acting leader doesn't care about employee happiness No communication or desire to improve morale No room for lateral or upwards move

    Advice to Management

    Management courses and training are desperately needed here. Allow for lunch breaks and morale boosting activities. This is currently a miserable place to work.

    Pros

    I was an intern in the Tax department for 2 years. Managers were extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    VP's were extremely arrogant, and the good luck ever seeing the head of the department, he is never around.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be around more often to see what is really going on in the department.
