Pros

Great salary. Health and dental are great as well. Strong name on a resume. Great opportunity to network (be sure to save your own copy of client names and numbers).

Cons

Boring. Other than that all seems ok

    I worked at Viacom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -The work days are rarely stressful
    -Many co-workers are friendly and social

    Cons

    -You'll never know who is your actual boss because you'll constantly be answering to five people at a time
    -Most of the senior management spends all their time on Facebook
    -There are waaayy too many employees for the amount of work to be done so you'll find yourself on Facebook too

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hate to say this: you all could do a serious lay-off to reduce operating costs.

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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    Great benefits and on-site perks (The Lodge!)

    Cons

    Management has no vision for the company. Each brand is run differently and it can often seem like other brands have more value than yours. Lots of chiefs, not enough Indians (to be very un-PC about it).
