I worked at CBS full-time

Pros

CBS is a very dynamic company to work for and one that I enjoyed working for as a whole. I was fortunate enough to spend time with senior management, who I thought were excellent. In addition, my supervisor was great, and my colleagues and I all got along very well.

Cons

There are certainly plenty of individuals within the company that do not believe in change, nor do they even want to hear about it. Getting things finished is very challenging and takes a very long time.

Advice to Management

People are not neccesarily aligned to do what is best for the company, more or less what is best for their department or their Division. I think some changes in goal setting and alignment could go a long way.

    I have been working at CBS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stability and an old school culture. Lots of people working here for 20 or 30 or more years.
    Some wonderful people working here.
    Lots of smart people to work with here.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    Difficult to break into the executive ranks, unless you are related to someone.
    Lack of interest in continuing to develop current employees.
    Outside candidates are often hired first instead of promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Move the company culture to one that is more modern and compatible with other top employers.

    I have been working at CBS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Supportive of family and personal time off.
    Professional co workers. Newsroom is a team. Pay is ok. Benefits and insurance are great.

    Cons

    Some senior producers need to retire or move on. Favoritism. Managers can basically do what they want. Miss tons of days of work or 'work from home' advancing to different shows and departments is difficult. Being a woman and mother held me back advancing. And I have worked any and every schedule so I know my work ethic is flawless. Promoting from within is rare in my department. But it has improved over the last year.

    Advice to Management

    Reward dedicated, smart people that have stayed with CBS... Instead of hiring outside.
