    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.

    I have been working at CBS Television Studios full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is some prestige at working on a few of their longer running shows. Great location. New building.

    Cons

    Fun brands to work on at times but a lack of direction and inspiration from upper management led to a tired, monotonous team. Extreme micro-management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing your teams with closed door meetings. Empower the people who work for you.

    I worked at CBS Television Studios (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, including 401k, health insurance. Good location, near restaurants/bars. Lots of friendly people working there. You can learn a lot about the tv industry in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth unless someone croaks or moves to a different company. Slow to respond to current trends. Not willing to pay to keep loyal workers.

    Advice to Management

    Better lines of communication between the departments would increase productivity and overall morale. Nothing worse than getting yelled at for not knowing something, that was kept a secret, but ends up on Deadline.

    Pros

    Great place to work. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Cons

    No freebies except coffee. Lunch had to be paid for but luckily wasn't too expensive. The proximity to the farmers market also helped provide alternatives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Maybe offer some free lunch options.

    You just wish it was full time. Everything else was great.

    Advice to Management

    I think using freelance writers from outside of television is a smart thing to do. Keep doing it!
