    I worked at Comedy Central full-time (More than a year)

    Worked with great people. Very humble and chill crew on the show I worked on. Family atmosphere. Great work environment.

    Only real fringe benefit was free food.

    I have been working at Comedy Central full-time

    Pros

    great content and great people
    flexible hours

    Cons

    too much over thinking
    preaches transparency but is not

    Advice to Management

    Management, take ownership of your decisions, take risks, stop managing upwards and acknowledge there are people below making the work that you have put zero thought into.


  4. "Perma-lance sucks"

    Pros

    Nice office and you get to watch a lot of television.

    Cons

    If I'm expected to be in the office 9-5 5 days a week, I'm not "freelancing." Viacom has a history of making money off of 22-25 year olds who don't know any better.

    I have been working at Comedy Central full-time

    Pros

    Great friendly environment, a lot of flexible vacation time, nice offices, decent benefits

    Cons

    There's been a lot of recent changes at the top that trickle down and affect the staff due to confusion about roles and responsibilities within the company. Pay could be better, you definitely won't make as much moving up within the company as you would coming in from the outside.

    I worked at Comedy Central full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Creative broadcast environment, freelance position affords space from the "corporate world", great salary, play an active role in content creation

    Cons

    Corporate thinking clouds the environment, executives with no show-side experience don't understand what it takes to get the job done, it's Hollywood so you need to be guarded and protect yourself

    Pros

    Amazing brand. Great People. Fun.

    Cons

    Corporate environment. Changing landscape. Long hours.

  8. "Daily Show"

    I worked at Comedy Central part-time

    Pros

    Very good benefit package if you work full time or are union member. Dogs. Lunch. Location. Nice group of folks.

    Cons

    Loose, friendly vibe masks pitfalls.

    Advice to Management

    Improve management's communication with employees. Don't expect them to read minds.

    I worked at Comedy Central full-time

    Pros

    As long as you do your job well, you are primarily left alone.

    Cons

    Depending on what department you work with, you may need to leave to move up the corporate ladder.
