    I have been working at CBS as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    A great internship program, available exclusively to students, a great learning experience. Interns are exposed to real work and given exceptional guidance along the way.

    Cons

    Little turnover means limited opportunities to grow, very few interns go on to be hired full time because there are few openings. need to leave to grow.

    I have been working at CBS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great name on your resume, good 401k options

    Cons

    A lot depends on your department management. Mine, for example, do no engage in regular annual performance reviews and plead budget concerns regularly. It's hard to feel good about America's Most Watched Network when we're told we can no longer use our corporate card for bottles of water at the airport, or you're told your work is good but there's no money for a promotion

    The people within the company are so open to helping you whenever you need it. Everyone wants everyone to succeed.

    Not really too much for me to complain about. Being completely honest, I have no issues.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. They offer a competitive salary, benefits and outside of office activities. The people are friendly which makes the environment enjoyable. They allow you to be very creative and are open to ideas and suggestions.

    Cons

    The offices are in poor condition and are in desperate need to be updated.

    Like it's programming, status quo, generic and bland but safe.

    Pros

    Big company, definitely has good benefits, lots of departments to network with if you know how to. Depending on the dept you work in, hours are fair.

    Cons

    Too corporate but it is what it is, lack of community, not the best pay depending on dept politics. No room to grow.
    Employees in some depts stuck in high school, wish they'd do more socializing events for employees.

    If you're a creative, sometimes you're not allowed to be too creative. They preach to think outside the box but they don't want you to in the end. Corporate Brand is too important to encourage change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop playing favorites. You're in the communication field so COMMUNICATE. Offer incentives for employees to work harder.
