    Great content, fun environment and wonderful people.

    Very slow career growth. People tend to stick around for a long time, which slows the process down.

    I have been working at Comedy Central full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The content is funny. Obviously, I guess. Talent stops by every now and then.

    Cons

    Zero company culture or personal growth. For a brand so idolized, so revered and so seemingly fun as CC, it's a shame that working there isn't any of those things. While generally ok, employees/office are not on-brand (read: boring and quiet). From a work standpoint, people tend to have been here for awhile so they create separation from newer folks and are not subtle about change..of any kind. Oh and personal growth doesn't exist here. Rather than a cool hip, innovative company that would attract the best, most creative and eccentric talent, CC -- it pains me to admit -- is more like where we thought out parents worked: punching a time card, dull and rat race-y. The floor reeks of the DMV rather than a place where Tosh.0, Broad City or Workaholics would call their own.

    Advice to Management

    I realize we all hail to the god we call, Viacom. But make more of an effort to support creative and innovative endeavors - from all depts. Upper mgmt talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk, unfortunately.

    Pros

    Generally friendly interesting co-workers. Get access to shows.

    Cons

    Many people creating fiefdoms to protect their jobs, both in CC and Viacom. This makes everything very political and creates more work. Somehow every project needs to be a crisis with people freaking out and yelling. People patting themselves on the back for being so innovative, when mostly products are mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    The only reason people come to the website to watch videos is because the people who make the shows are very talented and create great content.

    Pros

    Love it here. Says a lot when you wake up excited to go to work every morning. Good people who care about their employees and want to see them contribute and thrive. The network's content leads to a lot of laughs every day. Can't beat that.

    Cons

    Viacom is an enormous corporation, which can sometimes make an employee feel very small in the grand scheme. But that is probably just inherent in all companies this large.

    I worked at Comedy Central full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Comedy Central provided a very collaborative, team based environment. Senior Management was very approachable and respected the roles of all staff and empowered all for success.

    Cons

    A relatively small division with limited room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with staff and recognize and reward hard work. The company can only succeed if the employees give 100% at all times.

    Pros

    Casual office and very relaxed dress code. even exec's wear jeans sometimes (depending on dept.) For the most part coworkers are fun and smart, good people. a lot of creative people here even in not creative jobs.

    Cons

    Not much room to advance, to many freelancers working fulltime, opportunities to actually contribute really depends on what group you're in and who your boss is and how the wind is blowing
