Fun place to work with great, talented co workers who generally have creative ideas and solutions

I have been working at Viacom full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

People! Creative folks who have fun while working hard

Cons

Lost focus on brands in focus on bottom line. Recent years of cost cutting are taking a toll.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Back to basics, what made MTV and Nick great for so many years was a focus on creative ideas, execution and vs such a focus on bottom line. Lets strike a balance - we can deliver shareholder value by spending to get us back to where we were creatively in the past.

    I have been working at Viacom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some nice people, fun vibe, benefits are ok, have every tool needed for success.

    If you want to work 9-5(ish) and just kind of drift along, might be good environment.

    Cons

    No real career opportunities (don't believe recruiters), after talking to other folks it's typical to get stuck in your same position for a long time, lots of pretending/not much actual knowledge.

    Also, you're going to be at your starting salary (with minimal bumps) for a very long time. Be aware of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a vision that does more than celebrate diversity. Viacom could be OWNING the digital space right now. But there's a reason why Hulu is the number one monetized video ad site right now.
