    I have been working at CBS TV Distribution part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team. Making a lot of lifetime friendships and business relationships. Professional work environment. Producers are very good at keeping everyone on task and on schedule.

    Cons

    You are expected to stay late at the supervisor's will but you are not rewarded or fairly compensated for your extra effort or time spent.

    Advice to Management

    You would have less turnover if you paid your employees better instead of finding new interns or film school graduates.

    Pros

    Unforgettable memories getting to do cool things I'll tell my kids about someday. From going to the Oscars to interviewing various celebrities, there were certainly things about this job that were a blast. And the lower level employees—from camera ops to production coordinators to editors and directors—are some of the most fun, down to earth people I've ever worked with. We were just working hard and sticking it out together.

    Cons

    Financial pressures from up top mean that this company works non-union personnel into the ground. 100 hour weeks weren't uncommon. I worked often from 5:30am until late into the night, plus weekends and holidays, and was attached to my phone 24/7 the little time I didn't spend at work. This kept up until the pace quite literally made me sick and disabled from working, then I never heard from many in upper management who had pretend to be my "friends" ever again.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the financial issues and get your priorities straight to create a livable work environment for your employees. You have some great, talented folks who are willing to work hard for you. Recognize that and compensate them (both in pay and work/life balance) in a way that allows them to thrive as long-term employees.

    Job security. Great location. All co-workers are enjoyable.

    Not much growth opportunity. Employees are very comfortable in their roles and not much room for growth.
