    Pros

    Fantastic offices, people and location. I work in one of the European offices, and had the chance to work with some really great inspiring people.

    Cons

    Being a large company, Viacom can be a little bureaucratic at times. But this is common to any fortune 500.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trusting your employees to made the right decisions. Challenge them if they're on the wrong path, but keep encouraging when they are making progress.

    Pros

    Fun place to work at. Definitely felt lucky and priviledged to work there.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of my department, I never knew if executives would eventually cut the department to save money. Being creative was not particularly welcomed. Efficiency was rewarded.

    Great PTO days and amazing culture. Although it's not what it use to be, the company is a great place to start your career in Media.

    You need the best creative team to bring fresh and cool shows for their target demo.
