Editor (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Viacom

ProsI worked in publishing. Top management doesn't care about that. But if you work in another division, that might be good. I think that the people at some of the other divisions had a far better experience than I did.

Great cafeteria. The cafeteria is one of the best in NYC.

ConsCompany is too big. Management has no understanding of what parts of the company do. Parts of the company are starved of resources. If you work there, there's no opportunity for advancement, and the focus is on cutting costs.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn what your company does. Invest in the publishing arm. Or sell it to someone who cares and would invest in it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
