    Pros

    The paycheck; that's about it.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities unless you are a personal friend of management, inflated egos of said management, sufficating culture, etc, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You wouldn't have sold to CBS if you actually had a strategy in place woud you?

    Good short-term move....not a career move, especially if you are in NY

    Pros

    CNET encourages taking personal time off and does not require insane hours for working. There are training sessions offered to employees that help improve professional growth and personal growth outside of work as well. The integration with CBS Interactive has made it one of the biggest online networks in the US. Most people don't care how you do your job, just as long as it gets done.

    Cons

    It is not easy to transfer to other departments. The benefits could be a little better. Traffic to sites are not the same and employees are getting the bad end of the stick because of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company could offer better benefits. Look for new, improved models to grow the business.
