Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

I worked in publishing. Top management doesn't care about that. But if you work in another division, that might be good. I think that the people at some of the other divisions had a far better experience than I did.

Great cafeteria. The cafeteria is one of the best in NYC.

Cons

Company is too big. Management has no understanding of what parts of the company do. Parts of the company are starved of resources. If you work there, there's no opportunity for advancement, and the focus is on cutting costs.

Advice to Management

Learn what your company does. Invest in the publishing arm. Or sell it to someone who cares and would invest in it.

    I worked at Viacom as an intern

    Pros

    the program is well organized and supplies a lot of resources that will help further your career goals and marketability

    Cons

    working for such a large company can be difficult. it can be hard to get in touch with the right people and can be hard to make a difference

    Advice to Management

    I know many who have interned for this company would love to return this summer but can't because of the post-grad limitation. my suggestion would be to open this up to newly graduated students.
