"Good tax internship program"

I have been working at CBS as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

The tax internship program is strong in that it allows interns to see a very broad view of tax. Interns are expected to prepare returns, extensions, and estimates.

Cons

The pay is low relative to some other internship programs out there. The workload is heavy from an intern's perspective.

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

    Pros

    The people I work with are some of the nicest in the entertainment business.
    Plenty of opportunity for growth if that's what you want.
    There's a positive energy and overall excitement among the people I work with

    Cons

    The pay is controlled by a oversight committee, so it's very difficult to get as much money as I would like.

    Pros

    You get an office.

    You get autonomy.

    If you accept the status quo, you get great health insurance benefits (except cancer care coverage), and a steady paycheck.

    Attention to detail is the hallmark of the work product at this network. It is rigorous and often awesome.

    Many people are passionate about the work they are working on.

    On occasion, you do get to meet the network talent. The occasional photo with your favorite network celeb is possible.

    Cons

    The corporate structure still works under a philosophy of hierarchy where good ideas cannot possibly come from management or worker bees.

    Very little collaboration. Lots of secrecy.

    Yelling happens.

    Do not dine at your boss's favorite restaurant at lunchtime or dinner. "There is a pecking order." Actual quote from the C-Suite.

    Be willing to fit the frat boy / sorority girl mold (have a mirror in front of your desk for bonus points -- bring your eyebrow technician to your desk every other week for more bonus points).

    Advancement happens if you have connections; this company prefers family connections. Think: Your uncle is the founder of some type of media or was famous in sportscasting. You will be promoted and often.

    No employee performance review. You provide excellent service for years, work late until 2 - 3 a.m., and give up your weekends, are promised a raise. Do not expect documented reviews. Ever.

    Advice to Management

    Do not assume your employees are idiots. They aren't. They want to collaborate with you, be listened to, and they, too, are your brand ambassadors.

    Encourage software literacy and employee development.
