    I have been working at CBS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family Friendly
    Flexible Hours
    Pay is decent

    Cons

    1)Bullying and mobbing needs to be taken seriously by Corporate IT management and HR: the constant bullying seriously hurts workers’ job performance but nothing is done. If anything, bullies get promoted and rewarded for their behavior.

    2)Corporate IT Management is a bad version of “Mad Men”. It pays lip service to diversity but does not mentor or promote women and minorities. Mediocre male favorites are promoted and mentored instead.

    3)Corporate IT department is highly dysfunctional: Immature processes, outdated software, and bad managers.

    4)Company is slow to change

    5)Promotions non-existent

    6)Too much favoritism!

    I have been working at CBS part-time

    Pros

    Thrown into a multitude of experiences...live, taped, the whole shabang.

    Good for networking, if you're up for it.

    Cons

    Unlike NBC pages, CBS pages don't get stationed in various departments as a way to network and move upward. You have hustle, rarely will an opportunity be given to you if you stay idle.

    Advice to Management

    Implement what NBC does with their pages where one can be stationed in a various department to learn and help.

    Pros

    Good local sales staff with good products to offerings. Corporate has a solid understanding of what a station should be doing.

    Cons

    Local station management shouldn't be trusted.

    Pros

    Diverse environment with opportunity for growth in some areas.

    Cons

    Behind on some technologies and processes. Salaries lower than other companies. Many of the subsidiaries of CBS operate independently and lack streamline structure and processes. Too many silos.
