    I have been working at CBS Interactive full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's not a shirt and tie kind of place. Your work is fairly autonomous in that you still have bosses and dead lines to meet but no one is hovering over you shoulder the entire day.

    Cons

    Home office is in San Francisco so sometimes it can feel like your disconnected from the goings on of the main office but it's not to prevalent.

    Good place for the first couple of years in your career, but not if you want to go somewhere long term and grow...

    I worked at CBS Interactive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance for the most part and schedules are very flexible depending on which team you are on. Deadlines are not too aggressive and there are virtually no requirements when it comes to appropriate workplace attire. Lots of team building events including picnics, movie outings, etc. Having CBS Interactive on your resume attracts the attention of other companies looking to fill positions.

    Cons

    Salary is below what other companies are offering for similar positions, especially after a couple of years experience under your belt. Criteria for promotions and advancement opportunities vary greatly from team to team and often seem to be based on who a manager's buddies are as opposed to performance on the job. Everyone seems to be protecting their turf, not allowing fresh blood to suggest improvements to existing processes because it is not the way it they do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your compensation to keep talented folks in house. There are some smart people that for one reason or another haven't been allowed the opportunity to help innovate at CBS Interactive and make things much more streamlined, manageable, and less fragile, take advantage of this human capital and give them more opportunities to show what they have to offer instead of paying lip service to it then going back to business as usual.
