    I have been working at CBS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the most hard-working, innovative, and warmhearted people you'll ever meet in your life.

    Cons

    A bit of a disconnect between corporate (NY) and the front line managers. They tend not to listen to ground forces as they make across-the-board policies that don't match up with reality.

    Advice to Management

    The change required is too grand to not have adverse consequences on all those except for corporate...it will need to get worse before it gets better.

    Pros

    Depending on production and you're staffing situation, comparable, decent benefits.

    Cons

    If you're working at TV City... the parking lot is terrible and they have no interest in fixing it. I know this sounds like nothing, but it indicates poor management of the lot, not much concern for works and gets frustrating. Park at the Grove.
