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

    Pros

    It looks good on a resume. Opportunity to make friends and business contacts. It’s close to public transportation. If you seek out the right people, you can gain some sort of professional development. Learn anything and everything you can and get out before you get too comfortable. I’ve been lucky enough to work for two really great managers who have tried to help me succeed—those types of people are diamonds in the rough at AMCN. Avoid the Operations Department or any job on the 2nd floor! It’s a pit of despair.

    Cons

    The salary is disgustingly bad; it’s so low that if you are not management, you will probably need a 2nd job in order to live anywhere in NYC. Low growth opportunity. There’s often lay offs and hiring freezes. Upper management are all about power grabs and advancing their own careers—employees are treated as being very expendable so you definitely need to seek out a mentor who can champion the work you are doing and help open you find better opportunities. There are a lot of backstabbers and opportunists who will try to step on you—push back. This company manages to breed sociopaths. If you are a woman, be prepared to be overlooked, undermined and taken advantage of—only men get promoted or acknowledged. You’ve got to be part of the Boys Club if you want any sort of career growth. And there are men who feel this way just as much as the female employees. When you’re not part of the inner circle, it’s very obvious. Being right by Penn Station, the area is full of pushy commuters and lost tourists. There’s also a very sad overpopulation of homeless in the area. The building is right next to a soup kitchen and 2 drug clinics, so you are often solicited for money by the same people everyday. The outside environment is just as bad as the inside.

    Advice to Management

    This is specifically to the Operations Department... Stop taking advantage of people and find a way to make your teams feel appreciated. Offer a more competitive salary, and you’ll stop losing people to HBO and Viacom. There’s a reason everyone is miserable and looking for new jobs. These awful reorganizations aren’t going to do the trick unless you’re reorg’ing upper management. Whatever it is you’re doing now is not working for anyone but yourselves. Though, I’m sure that’s the point.
