    I worked at CBS Interactive full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice HR department, delicious coffee in the lobby.
    Fun events-

    Cons

    Poor management-
    No training or time dedicated to new hires-
    Teams do not interact with one another- everyone is in a silo
    There was literally a time I was screamed at because a program was broken on my manager's computer?! How does that make any sense...

    Advice to Management

    Promote managers because of their managerial skills not just their experience with the job. It takes a certain aptitude and patience to be a good manager.
