    Pros

    AMC Networks was an exciting place to work. Challenging at times but only because they wanted to get the best out of you. You can craft your own career path and take risks and know that the company has your back.

    Cons

    As with many large companies, communication sometimes get bottlenecked.

    Pros

    if you're working in the Los Angeles office, you have great exposure to the development and production teams, but overall AMC Networks is a changing company. There are many nice, smart and hardworking people, but the company operates like a new company (rather than one which has been around for 20+ years). The company has great employee benefits and pays pretty well for a cable network.

    Cons

    Again, focusing on change. AMC Networks years ago was an amazing place to work. With all of its success, unfortunately that changed over the years. Work, life balance is not supported and employees spend years in the same positions with no opportunity to get promoted. AMC Networks is very much a NYC based company, so that culture and those professional expectations extend into all offices. For example, most employees work east coast in addition to west coast hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's takes all types of personalities and professional strengths to make a company successful.

    I have been working at Rainbow Media as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and nice facilities.

    Cons

    People here are completely robotic. If you do anything out of lockstep with the way the machine works, you're rebuked for it. There's also lots of internal work politics going on, so watch your back if you work here. There's also no opportunities to advance here, so if you're coming into one position, it's likely that you'll be stuck in that one for your tenure at the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more people on staff instead of using people and throwing them away on temp contracts.
