    Pros

    Great place if you really need a job, but i'd just stay for the HS tie in.

    Cons

    Lots of pushy people, favortism is everywhere and you have to do something almost criminal to get a raise. If i were a manager things my be a bit easier

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employess and learn to take what they say seriously. Read feedback comments listed in the break areas and no more free lunches.

    Pros

    At least it is new media, and you will work your butt off. They are willing to try almost anything to make a buck.

    Cons

    That said they wont but up the resources to make many good ideas really work, senior management terrified of Redstone, and the only real concern is what to do about the stock price. Compensation is terrible, benefits not too good either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run when you can, it seems the Redstone family drama will never end, and when the old man dies all heck will break loose I suspect.
