Learned not to trust any possible bosses what they tell you so you take the job and then they let you down.
Pros

Productive and Exciting place to work
Vice President of Programming and Brand (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 24, 2017
The job is definitely exciting. The company was amazing to work for up until the point that Les Moonves announced that CBS wanted to part with it's Radio Division. At this point, I think things will be very quiet until the merger of Entercom and CBS is approved.

Master Control Operator (Former Employee) –  Charlottesville, VAApril 2, 2017
The staff is highly professional.
The operation is extremely automated and largely top of the line.

Benefits upon my leave included being fed by the company once a month(great food!), retirement benefits, healthcare, paid time off, and more.
Likely the bosses I enjoyed working for the most.

Good place to work
Senior technical engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 21, 2017
Overall CBS is a good company to work for. The pay is fair and benefits are good and a lot of the people who work there are nice. Dealing with the different sub divisions can be frustrating. My team is also understaffed, making it difficult to perform our day to day and do projects at the same time.
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
working with sub divisions

Working for TV news can be hectic but it is also very rewarding. EACH DAY is very different and presents new challenges. It is necessary to learn balance and patience but also have the ability to work fast and think on your feet.
