    Pros

    Great corporate culture with dedicated, hardworking employees. Growing international presence through acquisition and strategy. People are excited about the shows that are on air.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted. As with any large company, change is cumbersome and slow.

    Pros

    Loved AMCN. Super friendly environment, you work hard and they reward you well, they make you feel appreciated which is awesome and rare. I loved it there and my boss was a great mentor and still is to this day.

    Cons

    If you are a coordinator, it is difficult to grow. The execs have been there for years and years and don't really move from there. A lot of people end up leaving to grow elsewhere. My starting salary as a manager at a different network was well more over some managers that were at AMCN for years.

    Pros

    Work closely (proximity) with senior management. Nice non-pretentious open door policy. Friendly atmosphere. Very understanding of work/life balance.

    Many stagnant employees on all levels makes it difficult to move up as there are not many job openings. Some clash between departments.

    Great Place to Work

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Hard working staff, high expectations that equal great results, approachable upper management, excellent benefits and perks. For the most part, most everyone is willing to teach you if you're looking to learn.

    Cons

    Some big egos in middle management, can have some damaging office politics and sometimes very "clique-y". If someone doesn't like you personally, some people have a hard time putting that dislike aside and therefor some people are treated differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You do a great job of being approachable. The company is successful because of the clear goals you have set.

    Pros

    I work for AMC Networks part-time and it's a very friendly atmosphere. All the tools you need to succeed are handed to you on a silver platter. Even has a nobody I had my own office (extremely glorified cubical; image an office with no window). Very comfortable hours too.

    Cons

    Very large company and Rainbow Media owns several departments that don't intermingle (except at the top). Not really a con but it's the closest thing I can think of. Especially since each floor is newly renovated (as of spring 2012).
