I worked at CBS Interactive

Pros

Great brands and talent still there, nice work environment and perks

Cons

Lots of the great talent has left. Began to feel more like a corporation without the start-up energy. Layoffs, cost cutting and fleeing of skilled mgmt had an impact on morale

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Breathe new life into the org. Get back to being innovators and realize who you are competing with for top talent in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area

Recommends

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at CBS Interactive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - interesting coworkers
    - location
    - informal work environment

    Cons

    - no room to grow within
    - middle-management does nothing
    - CEO and CTO have no idea what they're doing
    - layoffs across the board when there's already too little people to get the job done
    - pay raises, if given, barely keep pace with cost of living increase

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop laying key people off and offer a competitive salary. Too many of the leaders who knew how to grow this company are gone and their replacements, if they even were replaced, have no idea what they're doing. This is causing so much pain operationally and slowing down the growth of CBSi.
