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

    Pros

    The teams are awesome. People like coming to work. We generally have a great work life balance, if not heavier in the life side at times. Some groups have more freedom than others, but the management is pretty clear in direction.

    Cons

    The management can get a little murky as it goes down the rungs. Sometimes SVP level and above don't have clear direction on priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the fake ideas contest. When you announced the winners you didn't share the ideas that won. You just listed a generic category and multiple employees won under the same category. It looks like the winners were chosen by favoritism. How are the winning ideas being implemented? Why did those ideas win?
