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.

    A solid company with well-branded networks

    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.

    I have been working at Rainbow Media full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
