Current Employee - Sales Planner
Approves of CEO

Pros

Great place if you really need a job, but i'd just stay for the HS tie in.

Cons

Lots of pushy people, favortism is everywhere and you have to do something almost criminal to get a raise. If i were a manager things my be a bit easier

Advice to Management

Listen to employess and learn to take what they say seriously. Read feedback comments listed in the break areas and no more free lunches.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    At least it is new media, and you will work your butt off. They are willing to try almost anything to make a buck.

    Cons

    That said they wont but up the resources to make many good ideas really work, senior management terrified of Redstone, and the only real concern is what to do about the stock price. Compensation is terrible, benefits not too good either.

    Advice to Management

    Run when you can, it seems the Redstone family drama will never end, and when the old man dies all heck will break loose I suspect.

    I worked at Viacom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great offices, funky location, lots of cool brands, the chance to go to some great international events. Good reputation in the industry, great flexible benefits package

    Cons

    Constant restructures and redundancies, fears about job security, quite a cliquey culture, the company seems to have 'favourites' that they cherry pick and fast track to seniority, poor pay and minimal pay rises

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to develop individuals career paths, benchmark pay against competitors
