    Pros

    Name recognition, nice perks, good balance of family and work.

    Cons

    Little advancement, constant turmoil. Everyone on the edge of their seat awaiting the next layoff.

    Advice to Management

    Time to take a look back at people, retrain or reevaluate. Good people let go when they could be placed elsewhere.

    Pros

    I worked in the building at Time Square. As a big corporation they provide a lot of activities to engage the employee community at Viacom, like chef cook-offs, earth day sales and various volunteer opportunities. The building itself has cool funky designs, each floor has it's own character as it reflects the styles of different TV channels. So there's rarely a boring week. As a programming intern at NickJr.com, my supervisor treated me as a collaborator, constantly giving me tasks that hired freelancers would do, and many times I could see my own work reflected on the final outcome of NickJr shows, that was very rewarding. Last but not least, because the catering is government-subsidized, you get to eat really well with a sweet price, a piece of steak with sides only cost seven dollars, I really miss that.

    Cons

    My supervisor's often too busy and I had to look for work myself, it is hard to meet new people as an intern, since most of the time I worked independently. Also it's hard to meet with other interns.

    Advice to Management

    Have more community engagement programs for interns, also I see that supervisors are often not held accountable for their treatment of interns, it would be good to review it with them. My supervisor treated me well, but some times I feel I'm just given tasks to past time.

    Pros

    Young company and fun upbeat offices. The company arranged many intern events to keep us involved.

    Cons

    With their office right in Times Square, the comment can be a bit overwhelming - but it also wakes you up in the morning

    Pros

    You get to meet celebrities, great events and a very youthful energetic environment. The name is also prestigious.

    Cons

    Low Pay
    Poorly managed
    Limited Growth
    No gratitude for new ideas
    Overall, they are not moving in the right direction for this new tech age.

    Advice to Management

    Please reorganize to generate revenue instead of laying people off once you lose revenue. That process is limited and lacks originality. Please allow new thoughts from your employees.

    Pros

    - They have a great internship program with so many different departments for all interests
    - Lots of hands on learning
    - They encourage you to schedule informationals with as many different departments as you can
    - The Lodge is a great, inexpensive place to grab lunch
    - The office environment is very laid back and everyone there is super friendly

    Cons

    The Times Square Location is not the best. It can get very crowded and loud at times. If there's a special event happening, getting into the front door is a struggle.
