    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CBS Interactive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back environment. Free food often. Free coffee every day. Quarterly contests.

    Cons

    Too much horse play. Team leads are a distraction by spend most of day talking loudly about non work related stuff. Lost alot of productive workers due to being let go after the 2 year assignment being over.

    Advice to Management

    Stop so much of the horse play, and get team leads to pipe down and stop being such a continuous distraction and productivity will easily go up. End the looming 2 year deadline and more good workers will stick around.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about the future of entertainment by working with these creatives.

    Typical entertainment industry biases with just enough of a corporate atmosphere to remind you that you work for the man.
