I have been working at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Young workforce, a good place to start your career, good benefits, flexible in terms of responsibility.

Cons

Promotes "jack of all trades, master of none" work philosophy. Squelches new ideas. Not interested in creative solutions or ideas. Happy to churn out lowest quality work for the biggest buck.

Advice to Management

Take a few risks, it's what put MTV on the map in the first place.
