        I have been working at CBS Interactive full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        1. You're working for a major publisher 2. Free snacks, soda & juice 3. Fun Happy Hours 4. Good colleagues to work with 5. You learn a lot about Digital Media

        Cons

        We found out on 2/11/19 all planners would be laid off. We have only a month to find new jobs ... The severance package is not even a real package, only one extra paycheck !

        Advice to Management

        Have an actual plan in place before laying off over 20 people. You know we need time to go through interview processes. And next time, maybe you should offer a real severance package. Very disappointed this happened.
