    I worked at Viacom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Benefits
    - Paid time off ( vacation / sick days )
    - Company culture
    - Appreciation of employees / perks
    - Excellent programs, courses and classes offered to employees

    Cons

    - Difficult to advance within departments
    - Low starting salaries
    - Challenging corporate systems in place that make easy tasks like submitting expenses...incredibly difficult and time consuming

    Advice to Management

    Have more opportunity for your internal assistants / managers to move up within departments and networks. I wanted to stay here and continue working for Viacom but after a year of looking / waiting there still wasn't a full-time opportunity to grow....and I had to look outside of the company.
