I have been working at Viacom
Pros – One of the best reasons to work at Viacom is being able to exercise your creativity and seeing the results of your work show up on air and seen by millions. There is really no rhyme or reason to some of the thigns we do which can be great if you harness if properly - you'll get a chance to do things no one has ever done before so it's like a laboratory for ideas. The people really make the workplace and I've had a chance to work with some incredibly talent folks who are my lifelong friends now.
Cons – Viacom is a very competitive place to work as it's such a desirable company to work for. Many times it seems like you don't get enough support from senior management because everyone is always trying to prove their worth to the larger organization. Also, because it's such a creative environment, it lacks the structure that most other companies have in place to ensure fairness and clear direction.
Advice to Senior Management – The people who work here are passionate about their jobs for a reason - they want to see the channels succeed because they hoenstly care. Please show some of that care back to the employees and really listen to what they need. Help us make sense of the madness that is making creativity blossom and most importantly, pay us what we deserve.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
