    I have been working at Viacom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture and people, very good benefits, (in sales) solid training and valuable work experience that will put you ahead of others in the industry, good opportunity for networking within company, valuable company name to have on resume

    Cons

    VERY political - you absolutely must play "the game" if you want to move up, (in sales) low base pay compared to other companies

    I worked at Viacom as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great way to network. Everyone in LA or NYC has at some time worked under Viacom.

    Cons

    Personally I had a terrible boss which colored my experience. Poor pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay checks make better workers, also, interns should be paid.
