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

Pros

- Flexibility
- Great benefits
- Free to drive innovation
- Amazing work/life balance

Cons

- Its a big corporation so getting traction for projects can be hard. Loads of diplomacy and politicking needs to happen. You have to drive it because nobody else will
- Every two years they shake the snow globe and make arbitrary cuts and restructuring
- Senior management Goldfish syndrome (30 second memory inside a glass bowl)
