    I have been working at Viacom full-time for less than a 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).

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
