    I worked at Viacom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Flexible hours. Culture was mostly laid back - as long as you get your job done,

    Cons

    Company now seems more concerned with how the stock is doing instead of doing what worked for them for 20+ years - innovate. All the creative leaders have been forced out or left on their own, and have been replaced by bean counters.

    Advice to Management

    Let the creative people do their jobs. Take risks.


  3. Good enough experience that I would go back if the right opportunity arose

    I worked at Viacom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, good place to grow skill set, solid respect for life outside of the office

    Cons

    Leadership actions are sometimes out of touch with employees, business not as nimble as it could be due to individuals "protecting" their area of work

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to staff and take faster action in improving the working experience, provide clear path for advancement

    Internal mobility is said to be a big area for the company, but they really don't help employees further their careers.
