    I have been working at CBS full-time

    I have been working at CBS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits & Pleasant Workspace.

    Cons

    Silo mentality. No employee reviews. Few career growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Time to rethink the business. If I'm under 30, I have a weather app, I have a traffic app, & I have a news app. Why do I tune in to watch local news? If I'm over 30, I have all of those and I rather watch an old King of Queens or Seinfeld rerun. We need to go where the young people are because we aren't (and we need some young personalities rep'ing us there), and for the olders, we need to offer stories that you might talk to a bar buddy about -- give some humor and or insight.

    I have been working at CBS full-time

    Pros

    CBS is a great place to wok. The company is run very well and the people that I work with, are smart, collaborative, and strive to make CBS the best it can be.

    Cons

    Really can't think of any. The only thing I can think of is that we're in an industry that is evolving very quickly, with many new competitors and new ways of distributing content.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    You are working with the best in the business - they are not afraid to spend money on something if they think it will yield dividends. They are a great group of stations, with heritage and some of the best in the business to work with.

    Cons

    Things have become - not just with CBS, but across the board, too bottom line driven. Gone are the days of doing the right thing for the client - and now it's been replaced with doing things for the stock price at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to doing what is right - regardless of cost. Content is king and CBS has the best content in NY - but if they are penny wise and pound foolish, you'll continue to head down the wrong path.
