    Easy to be a superstar, harder to get paid for it

    I have been working at Viacom

    Pros

    Creative enviornment
    Wonderful benefits
    Good work/life balance
    Encouraged to try new things
    Compassionate management during personal crises
    Can be a big fish in a small pond depending upon department
    Amazing flex time options (work from home, comp days)

    Cons

    Borderine incompetent management
    Some executives land top jobs with little to no experience if they have the backing of infuential executives
    Completely lopsided top Viacom management to freelancer pay discrepancy
    Younger milennials can be entitled, unprofessional and more of a negative than a positive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Critically review your middle management tier and consider some of your top performers for promotions-don't rely on the word of top executives (how did they get those jobs in the first place?)

    Viacom has a laid back work environment and great perks, but little in the way of career advancement.

    I worked at Viacom

    Pros

    One of the best perks of working at Viacom is the work/life balance. Summer Fridays is a great example. When I worked there we got every other Friday off in the Summer.

    Cons

    The biggest downside I experienced while working there was the pace of personal/professional advancement, by which I mean it was non-existant. I worked there for several years without a pro-motion in title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have loved to have proved myself with more responsibility, but was never given the opportunity even when I asked.
