I worked at Rainbow Media

Pros

It allows you to get into the New York market. You start out in a freelance capacity and fight to get on staff just to get benifits.

Cons

The pay could be better. They have you do more work that in the city but for a third of the pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While it is great working for you the pay has to be to the point where you can afford to live on Long Island.

    I worked at Rainbow Media

    Pros

    Rainbow Media is comprised of silos of networks. Can't generalize. Not all business within the company are created and treated equally.

    Cons

    The Cablevision parent company is often unclear about how the Rainbow Media networks fit strategically within the larger cable provider company, and their value if often questioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Articulate a strategic business plan where Rainbow Media's value is greater than the sum of its network parts.
