    I worked at Viacom full-time

    Pros

    Friendly environment, and you really feel that you are a part of a great organization making great projects.

    Cons

    Low pay scale and long hours, but there is upward mobility and great benefits. Lots of reorganizing in the name of improvement can lead to annoying new procedures and a flow can be hard to establish.
