    Pros

    Nice people. People want to help each other be the best they can be.

    Cons

    Inconsistent direction. A lack of company priorities. Too insular, head in the sand. Does not know how to fail, learn from failures, make better decisions. No one is honest about the real problems and issues.

    Pros

    Content is interesting, free coffee

    Cons

    Senior management is clueless as the improvements they add simply give more work. Compensation vs hours is on the low end. Passive aggressive personalities make things difficult to work through. Honest feedback is lacking and goalpost is moved in terms of expectations.

    I worked at AMC Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Brand awareness is high; almost everyone loves Breaking Bad or Mad Men. Sometimes the campaigns are fun to work on. No yelling culture whatsoever. Sarah Barnett and Josh Sapan are very approachable and nice, which has had a very meaningful impression on me. Work/life balance is respected.

    Cons

    Complete lack of strategy or modern approaches. Very old-school and scared of experimentation. One size fits all mentality; what worked 10 years ago isn't going to work now. No real raises (only the BS 2% cost-of-living raise) and no growth plans to speak of. Processes are never consistent and upper management skills vary from person to person.

    Pros

    Getting to say you work at AMC... I guess?

    Cons

    **This is for the Ad Sales department - others are great** Some of the worst people I've ever met are in the ad sales department. I've never been a part of a worse culture.

    I worked at AMC Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work is easy enough, and you should be able to finish by 5.

    Cons

    Weird culture of trying to stay late even if you don’t have any work to do. Work isn’t evenly distributed and there are zero job perks. They will tell you they are taking you to the MSG box and out to client events or lunches, but that’s only for management.
