I worked at Viacom full-time (More than 10 years)
The company has great benefits and takes care of its employees.
Firm believer in diversity when it comes to hiring.
Forward thinking and fun work environment that promotes and rewards creativity.
The company is great to its employees... until the numbers don't add up and the managers don't hit their budgets. Then the layoffs come and it can be brutal.
Diversity in the work place does not include age. Once you hit 50 your days are numbered. There's never been a retirement party at Viacom.
NIckelodeon is on firm ground, but the rest of their cable networks are on thin ice. The rise of Netflix, Hulu and the cord cutting amongst their former core audience has created a downward spiral, not helped by the poor programming development over the past decade across the board. The current CEO has two years to turn it around.
