One year so far and still going strong

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Viacom

Pros

Relaxed and creative company culture
Diverse group of brands (MTV, Comedy Central, Paramount Pictures, BET, VH1, CMT, TV Land, Spike, NIckelodeon)
Great Perks

Cons

The Media industry is at an exciting cross roads. TV viewing habits have shifted towards various emerging platforms as well as towards TV viewing that is not as time senstive (e.g. DVRs). This can be both an opportunity and a risk.

    I have been working at Viacom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    Great benefits and on-site perks (The Lodge!)

    Cons

    Management has no vision for the company. Each brand is run differently and it can often seem like other brands have more value than yours. Lots of chiefs, not enough Indians (to be very un-PC about it).

  2.  

    Hired on a contract basis, so-so experience.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at Viacom as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture and fun perks, such as free concerts and deep discounts on Swag. The in-house cafeteria, The Lodge, is great. The pay was solid.

    Cons

    One particular manager I had blatantly played favorites among the staff. My work was fairly siloed, though, so I'm not sure if this was an issue across the board.
