It was laidback and I received regular feedback for my work.

Research Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Viacom

ProsN/A - I was an intern with the company, but they seem to have a very good work/life balance.

ConsI can't think of many cons, other than as an intern you are unpaid. I would rather have a paid internship than to only receive course credits.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease offer paid internships, so that many other talented individuals are able to contribute to the company as well. I do like that the duration of the internship was 3 months.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Content Coordinator (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA (US)

I worked at Viacom


Pros: The single best reason to work at Viacom is because it looks good on a resume. I worked with some talented individuals, but there was… Cons: The environment was incredibly clique-oriented and much of the management is simply passive aggressive. The pay is lower than average while the stress is incredibly… Advice to Senior Management: Stop handing out iPods and Slap Chops at Christmas instead of bonus checks--it's insulting.
