    Pros

    The industry and the challenges. There is almost always something new going on and there is a lot to learn if you get or take the opportunity. You get to work with the best and the brighest in the industry - there is a tremendous amount of talent here. Employees work well together (for the most part) and are supportive of each other. The benefits are competitive, the 401(k) is awesome.

    Cons

    The firedrill mentality and lack of respect for personal life. There is little to no communication to employees about what is going on with the business. It seems like everthing is a secret and needs to stay in a silo. There needs to be a focus on work/life balance. The head of HR is a fairly young man with attitudes and ideas about work that are from the 1940s. There also needs to be more recognition for jobs well done. There are no programs for reward and recognition outside of the ususal merit processes which is surprising given how most large companies operate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and start appreciating what the people that really do the work are doing.

    I worked at CBS Corp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    ONCE you get over the real bottom of the scum level, you get decent pay and benefits. You can make BIG bucks after you step on others to get as far as you can. Then...you can yell at whomever you want and live a life of luxury. You often get to see celebrities walking around the lot so that's always a plus.

    Cons

    WAY too much politics and too many lay offs. Very disheartening to see people getting laid off but you see your boss driving in the next week with a brand new $100K car. Superiors are very condescending and aren't the leaders they're supposed to be...more like dictators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay careful attention to everyone, including the low-level employees. They work just as, probably twice as hard as your upper-management team. Don't promote just on a person's network but on a person's ability.
