Fine if you want to sit at your desk and never go anywhere

I worked at Viacom

Pros

Some managers are good. Many of the low level folks are eager. Definitely friendly folks around.

Cons

Many managers are terrible. Many of the lower levels are frustrated or burnt out. Very top heavy company. Senior levels make crazy cash, low levels make none.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the slack. Too many unqualified people at relatively high levels. Pay attention.

    Pros

    Relaxed, casual atmosphere which helps promote creativity. Encourages learning and self development (tuition reimbursement is an added bonus)

    Cons

    Promotions based on seniority and number of years worked rather than job performance. Very hard to move up in the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits with paid time off, company holidays, and decent 401k matching; there is a casual work environment (casual dress code), and most people are good to work with

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up in the company, low paying compared to other similar companies, hard to get a raise for the lower level people, ridiculous bonus structure for the senior executives
