    Pros

    I loved my job for the people and what I was able to learn while at Viacom over the course of 7 years. My management was hands down, the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Viacom does not pay to industry standard. Politics also play a large role within the field of Inventory Management/Pricing, therefore, getting a raise even when overly warranted is nearly impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Pay to industry standard and weed out the employees who do not truly do handle do their jobs properly. Value the employees you have who want to stay but deserve more.
