Pros

Interesting work, interesting people, competitive salary, benefits

Cons

terrible upper management, poorly-trained employees, terrible schedule/hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward hard-work instead of letting it go unnoticed. Try to regulate the schedule/hours by hiring more temp workers and freelancers.

    Great culture, smart people, good location. A lot of old timers currently here. Managers are very flexible with schedules.

    Company is cheap to it's employees, wages are below market. Getting promoted is in your current work group isn't easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to compete with the internet companies in the area, please treat your more than just "resources"

    Current Employee - Account Coordinator in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at CBS Interactive full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Getting into the Account Coordinator role is an amazing opportunity to get your foot in the door. It opens up a lot of opportunities. Once you hit the 7th and 8th month mark, you become extremely desirable to employers. It's a great job to have on your resume. The workload can get extremely demanding and even overwhelming at times, but the knowledge an experience you gain is invaluable. Immediate management is really great. They really fight for you and look out for your benefit. If you have a strong work ethic and you show that you care about your job, your immediate management is on your side at all times.

    The company likes to promote within, which is great.

    Cons

    The money is not great. Although it's expected in the Account Coordinator role, it's very disappointing when getting promoted, because your salary doesn't increase that much. This is why the turnover is very high - people move to different companies where they make at least 10K more. Again, the work gets very hard and demanding at times (depending on the quarter), so be prepared for very long days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please reconsider the cost structure. More people will stay.
