    I worked at ViacomCBS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Working with world class brands - Friendly, smart co-workers - 1515 is an amazing building to work in - Very relaxed working schedule - Casual dress code Overall, a fun place to work for a period of time. The holiday parties are incredible, lots of events going on in 1515, and a good place to start your media career if you have little to no experience.

    Cons

    - No room for advancement - Lower salaries compared to similar positions in the area - Too much red tape - Failing business struggling to stay relevant (when compared to the rest of the industry) - Revolving door of employees coming and going - Notorious for hiring “perma-lancers” ( hiring contract workers, keeping them for years, and never giving them benefits).
