    I worked at CBS TV Distribution (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working with an established syndicated tv show under the CBS TV Distribution umbrella led to meeting great people!

    Cons

    work-life balance was difficult but time off was consistent. While we worked under CBS we did not have the corporate benefits of an actual CBS employee.

    I have been working at CBS TV Distribution full-time

    Pros

    Probably one of the last companies in NYC where you actually get to see the light of day after work. The hours are 9-5:30, and staying late is rare unless absolutely necessary. Lots of face time with upper level management who tend to be very approachable and friendly. A close-knit, comfortable environment and overall fun atmosphere. People generally get along well which lends to a positive workplace.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement or opportunity for growth. The day-to-day doesn't vary too greatly so it is easy to feel robotic after a while. No contact with the larger CBS group hinders growth opportunities as well. Out of date systems can make ordinarily easy tasks a bit more of an unnecessarily frustrating process.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, stability, nice coworkers, fun environment, yearly (minimal) raises.

    Cons

    No bonuses. No room for growth. Many of the departments are structured with assistants and executives, so it makes it hard to move up without moving out of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure departments so that those who come in at entry level & would like to stay with the company still have opportunities to move up in rank.
