    I worked at CBS Television Studios full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, great location, co-workers were nice for the most part. I met some great people in all departments who were genuine and hard workers. Most upper management (including my boss) are amazing!

    Cons

    Some upper level management use their assistants as their personal slaves... Who ever heard of an assistant filling up gas or going to the grocery store to find specific items?

    Advice to Management

    Dont turn a blind eye to upper management who abuse their power. It should not be ok for someone to have their assistant send out their bosses Christmas wish list. It's tacky

    I worked at CBS Television Studios full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment. Good people to work with. Great benefits. Some perks.

    Cons

    No loyalty, I worked there 10 years and I found out I was making $15k less than the average person in my same position, I asked for a raise to get me at the same level as other Senior Financial Analysts and was denied.

    Old school, still use paper for everything, not much is digital.

    Too much upper management.

    Pay is very low for the Entertainment Industry. I compared many of the same positions between CBS, NBC, Showtime, HBO, ABC, FOX, etc... CBS was the lowest, and sometimes they were substantially lower. All the companies money goes to paying Leslie Moonves (2nd highest paid CEO in America at $69 M a year)

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

    Pros

    The job is extremely easy. Fellow employees are easy to talk to. Good benefits once employed as a staff member.

    Cons

    They will keep you as a per-diem employee as long as possible. No room to move up and advance career wise. No diversity in management. Some managers simply don't know how to manage their departments. Lack of communication within departments.

    Advice to Management

    Higher outside employees, not just family members. Communicate with your staff more often. Find better ways to improve diversity in the workplace.

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

    Pros

    They treat their employees fairly and offer many benefits. Excellent working conditions and an interesting environment. For those wanting to continue their education, there are opportunities for tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Very few employees leave, which makes it hard for people to move up. Great for the company, just hard for someone hoping to continue growing in their career.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on actively promoting women and minorities. It's just always a good idea to have a lot of diversity in your management team.
