Pros

Great work/life balance
Passionate, smart co-workers
Fair compensation/benefits
Freedom to explore personal interests
Size of the site makes it easier to work with outside parties

Cons

Size and scope of the various Web properties can make coordination difficult between and even within sites

Seems to be cultural struggle between CBS and CNET in certain departments

Advice to Management

The larger CBSi properties especially need to make it easier for users to find the content they're looking for. Search especially needs improvement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    CBS is a casual work environment and the Interactive division has retained some of its .com roots. The engineering teams do have some very bright and motivated individuals.

    Cons

    The parent CBS company is clueless as to how to run an Internet company. Every project is pathetically under resourced. The sites are falling behind the progression of the Internet and are so heavily loaded with ads the user experience awful.

    Advice to Management

    The Internet is no longer "New Media." Stop tying to apply a dying broadcast business model to an Internet entity.
