    Pros

    One of the premiere networks and television studios in all of Hollywood

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic environment. Takes long time for decisions to be made. The environment does not foster growth or entrepreneurial ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate talent based upon the quality of work done, not who you believe you will get along with or not.

    I have been working at CBS Corp (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a prestigious company and the work is challenging and engaging.

    Cons

    They keep people on per diem status for years and you're lucky if you can even get a staff position or steady work.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for younger employees to move up and actively work to develop a career path for them within the company so they have something to aspire towards.

    Pros

    The pay is very good for people starting out, although I have coworkers who would disagree. TV and entertainment are industries that are here to stay, so you won't be in too much danger of being laid off -- unless you make too much or are a per diem employee. Where I work, there are quite a few perks and freebies, but those have dropped in the past few years. My supervisors have for the most part been very accomodating of my requests, but getting reliable talent in the door and staying has been difficult recently. It feels like we're constantly training.

    Cons

    The organization is so big, communication can be lax.

    Advice to Management

    Be better organized. Communicate more with your subordinates. Don't be afraid to hand off responsibilities.
