Pros: full hour lunch, holiday party, large desk, healthcare, benefits
Cons: lack of growth
My time at CBS as a National News Analyst allowed me to learn hands on how to interact with viewers. On the daily, I would cumulate and compile viewer data for executive producers and marketing teams. I learned that there is something to be learned at all stages in one's career and just how important audience research is.
I had a great direct manager, but felt the human resources associate I was assigned was not able to assist in growing my career (after three years).
I had well balanced, kind and always ready to answer a question coworkers. I made a great friend in this role too.
The hardest part of the job was sifting through the trashy, bigoted and bias reviews that some of the CBS National News programming would receive. Most was not of this nature, but there were some very bad apples mixed in.
I enjoyed the research, cumulation and compilation. It was great to know my work impacted programming based off of audience preference.
