Fun but poor management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLOctober 4, 2017
Worst part of this job was "Thirsty Thursdays" where everyone drank beer and was super obnoxious in a professional setting> I do not recommend working here if you are looking for a career.

Homepage/assignment editor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 29, 2017
A lot of work in a thankless environment. Staffing is a lot less than comparable web sites. Management is full of sharks. A difficult place that burns people out.
Pros
Good brand
Cons
Slave ship culture

Digital Revenue Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 29, 2017
CBS Interactive is a great place to work and grow your skills in digital marketing. Advancement is tough and for any changes to be made, it takes several months as this is a public company and approvals take forever

QA Team does not like outsiders
Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Burbank, CAAugust 9, 2017
If you do not fall into the social norm or groups that have already been made then this is not the place for you. Also, don't take a nap outside in the public courtyard/lunch area, you can be fired for that.
Pros
Excellent view of Burbank/Glendale
Cons
Management does not care about you

Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJuly 2, 2017
It was fun place to work at. The management was ok. The best part of the job were the benefits. Not much chance to advance, that's why I switched many departments within the company.

Streaming video service is the main business, both product and project focused. Typical work week is 40-45 hours with some crunch times. Supportive management with a "get it done" culture.
Pros
Free snacks and refreshments.

Open office environment, don't expect privacy.

Client Services (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 2, 2017
Learned a lot about my field and the company is really good about teaching employees valuable skills in order to succeed.

Work/life balance can get skewed sometimes because of strict deadlines but it teaches someone how to work efficiently.

Senior Credit Analyst (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 28, 2016
Was able to come in and work with creative people who encouraged creativity and took on additional tasks to grow skill set in Excel and understanding of public company revenue trends. The company is very revenue driven like most public companies which defines employee levels. Had wonderful rapport with immediate manager and keep in touch still. Unfortunately he left too but he was a great listener and human - a genuine open book. Credit work involves calling clients and emailing over past due accounts and resolving discrepancies through sales team (Account Coordinator teams). This is a well orchestrated method, where irreconcilable invoices are discussed via conference call with Account Coordinators and their managers. I handled outsourced accounts such and talked to them about their progress bi-weekly too.
Pros
Free lunches, learning reimbursement, friendly people, great CEO
Cons
No opportunities for advancement, low pay for industry.
