    “3% from viacom for 6% from you so the standard setup but terrible 401k investment options”

    The culture was the best thing about Viacom, there I felt like I was living out my childhood while also being an adult.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Producer in New York, New York State

    The flexible and robust paid time off is a huge plus - offsets a lot of the other issues working there.

    Viacom is a great place to work when it comes to benefits and perks!

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Director in New York, New York State

    For a company so heavily steeped in kids culture with Nickelodeon, the parental leave package should be far superior than it is.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Legal Counsel in New York, New York State

    401k - company matches 100% of the first 1% and 80% of the following 5%.

    good benefits, 401k not 100% vested till 2 years

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    They do have basic benefits but most other companies have better ones at this point. Expensive health insurance, terrible bonus setups (they change the formula every year), very difficult to get a raise and even then those are capped at less than 9%. No unlimited vacation like most companies in nyc have moved to. No free soda or food or snacks. Difficult to work remotely as it's entirely up to your manager to decide. 10k tuition reimbursement is nice.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Director in New York, New York State

    best and worst - PTO - sick, vaca, personal - is all combined.. Makes it seem like you get a ton of vacation - but if you use it, then you're SOL if you get sick.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in New York, New York State

    Benefits are great - easy to access and to compare different offerings. The eye insurance is especially impressive and the 401K match is good too.

    There is no 401K. There are discounts to Broadway shows, shows, zoos and vacations. Discount on electronics and other perks.
