Approves of CEO

I worked at CBS as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Very friendly coworkers and staff, even among those you don't directly work with.

Cons

Old and outdated computers, as well as the massive bureaucracy can make decisions move slow. Ie "red tape"

    I have been working at CBS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    CBS is a well known brand so on the outside it looks pretty prestigious to work there. They offer good benefits.

    Cons

    Not a good place to work if you're young and/or ambitious. Fresh ideas are not valued unless they come from people who are in the 'in crowd.' There is a major disconnect between management and employees. CBS is a company full of nepotism. It should be a place where meritocracy is valued but that will not happen as long as the current executive and senior level management is in place.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to take leadership and management courses. Management does not know how to inspire and get the best work out of employees. Most people are just working to keep their jobs. Also, management needs to end the 'questionable promotion' of people who are clearly in over their heads.
