    I worked at CBS Interactive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great teams, great sites, great content, nice perks really great people.

    Cons

    My manager changed 10 times in five years and I changed products just as many times and they often added or removed projects without warning, lots of hurry up and wait also. Likely a management training issue, they new how to do the job but not how to lead others.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting JR's to Sr's too early in their career.

    Pros

    Large and established company. Room for growth and movement. Lots of training to give you tools to succeed. You feel proud to be part of the massive CBS brand.

    Cons

    Work/life balance does not exist. 10-12 hour workdays not uncommon. Although lunch breaks are allowed, the culture does not promote them. Account services is not a respected part of the group. Most days are incredibly busy. Hard work is undervalued on the account services team. The stars are on the sales team.

    Advice to Management

    You're making money so keep doing what you are doing. Employees will step up.
