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

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsPeople! Creative folks who have fun while working hard

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

Advice to Senior ManagementBack 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.

A chaos storm of epic proportions that is fast slipping in the digital media world

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Viacom full-time for more than a year


Pros: Some nice people, fun vibe, benefits are ok, have every tool needed for success. If… 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,… Advice to Senior Management: Come up with a vision that does more than celebrate diversity. Viacom could be OWNING the digital space… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
