    Pros

    - flexible work schedule - great work/life balance - There are some real gems in leadership that will help you grow in your role and career.

    Cons

    - CBSi is like high school. Not a private high school that prepares you for college. It is more like the public high school you just happen to be zoned to attend. Your experience depends on what clique you join. - Most of the middle management is just there to accrue PTO. Forget about support from your manager or general leadership. (unless you win the 'good manager' lottery) - There is a lot of bureaucracy and unwillingness to disrupt the status quo so things move slow. - Annual review feedback goes unaddressed. - Compensation = popcorn

    Cons

    No long term future for really solid engineers or designers/creative people Content teams are valued over ever other team (understandable it's a content company but other depts should not be neglected)

    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.
