    Pros

    Great creative environment. Management def cares about offering training and opportunities to foster a positive workpkace.

    Cons

    Hard work doesn't necessarily pay off. There's an inner circle of people who continue to get promoted, leaving other hard working employees behind.

    Advice to Management

    There are way too many good , talented employees who have been forced to leave Viacom because there is little upward mobility
