Producer (Former Employee), New York, NY – December 17, 2013
One of the few networks that still believes in good story telling character driven stories.
A typical day is filled with pitching and figuring out how to get the best information in a compelling way on air. Hardest part of the job is figuring out how to get this done each and every day. Most enjoyable part of the job is having the platform to still – more... tell stories that you believe in that other networks may not be telling. – less

Intern (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – March 5, 2013
I assisted in setting up and broadcasting the Democratic National Convention. As an Intern I worked as part of the CBS: This Morning show team learning set management, production, and other key aspects of the entertainment industry. I also strengthened my ability to multitask in a fast paced environment and meet short deadlines as well as handling office – more... finances and running errands. – less
Great workplace, great team mates, management could have been better
Reference Librarian / Archivist (Former Employee), New York, NY – May 23, 2012
Very busy atmosphere, news is unpredictable; worked well under pressure. Management could have made wiser decisions when it comes to handling its workers and I got along well with my co-workers. Hardest part of the job is crunch time and meeting deadlines. I enjoyed the reward of the work when it aired.
