Pros

Great content to work with, nice co-workers, good managers, education opportunities, training, responsive boss, good work atmosphere.

Cons

Upper management does not like to spend money on updated computers for employees, Times Square location can be stressful. Advancement can be slow unless you are very aggressive.

    Night shifts, not the best communication between different departments, salary.

    Pros

    Some nice people, fun vibe, benefits are ok, have every tool needed for success.

    If you want to work 9-5(ish) and just kind of drift along, might be good environment.

    Cons

    No real career opportunities (don't believe recruiters), after talking to other folks it's typical to get stuck in your same position for a long time, lots of pretending/not much actual knowledge.

    Also, you're going to be at your starting salary (with minimal bumps) for a very long time. Be aware of that.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a vision that does more than celebrate diversity. Viacom could be OWNING the digital space right now. But there's a reason why Hulu is the number one monetized video ad site right now.
