Great work/life balance, little room for growth
Freelance Senior Designer & Animator (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 3, 2016
They don't really hire staff positions, so if you're in design or editing, you're likely going to be a permalancer which means no benefits. On the plus side, the work life balance is better than almost any other network I've worked at and the shows are fun to work on. Unfortunately, there's little room for job advancement since they won't hire staff positions. Most people in the company work here for years on end, so sometimes creative can feel stale.
Pros
Great work/life balance
Cons
Only hire freelancers

Wild times in the days when working in cable was like working in tech today
Manager On-Air Promotion (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 21, 2016
Great environment with receptive executives and management who allowed even the least experienced employees to have unlimited growth in a creative atmosphere. Literally started at the bottom and worked my way up into a management position within two years. I loved the people, the fast-pace, the exchange of creative ideas. Long hours and limited resources were challenging, but working as a team and adjusting and adapting to those challenges laid a great foundation for my future endeavors.
Pros
Yeah. Free lunch. That was nice. Unlimited potential for growth. Highly creative.
Cons
Flying by the seat of your pants.

A wonderful place to work, but not a place to grow. Upper management did not like change! Man's club for sure!! Women at the top extremely territorial.

Productive Broadcast Network
Broadcast Designer/Art Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 10, 2015
It is a good place to work for and learn the broadcasting business. Just like any other broadcasting network it has some really busy days and some slower As part of the graphics team you get to work with every other group in the office and you get to be involved in the full process of how to run a broadcast station.

Sr. Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  New YorkJune 10, 2015
A typical day is fast paced but manageable and productive because of great team players. The hardest part of the job is not having an opportunity for advancement. But the best part of the job is the work /life balance and being part of a premium company that turns out great work.
Pros
The people and steady and maneagable hours
Cons
Lack of opportunity to advance

Production Assistant / Assistant Editor / Camera (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 23, 2012
Working here I learned a lot about television production. Hired as a PA, but was soon moved up to Assistant Editor as well as cameraman for the reality show Fight Camp 360. Co workers became instant friends. Got along well with everyone. However, benefits and job security are poor.
Pros

Good financial wise, but no place for advancement
Master Control Operator (Former Employee) –  Hauppauge, NYAugust 15, 2014
Basically you're monitoring different networks 12 hours a day in an area with no windows, no light. Some managers did their job, some slacked off. The field gives you good benefits, pay, but there is no place for advancement.
Pros
Good benefits, pay, make friends with co-workers
Cons
No windows, no light, poor to fair management

Departmental/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 1, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape but to be expected in a big company.

supportive, wonderful place to work
Executive Assistant / Office Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 22, 2013
I worked for 11 and a 1/2 yrs at Showtime Networks as Executive Assistant to an EVP who later was promoted to General Manager of Smithsonian Channel, a small start-up venture co-owned by Showtime Networks.

A typical day involved a variety of duties--arranging extensive travel arrangements; organizing my boss' calendar; writing & editing letters, captions and summaries on the channel's website, working with caterers and office supply vendors, managing my boss' work with nonprofit groups in the industry, managing intern recruitment & supervision for the dept., and so much more.

I learned a lot about negotiating contracts with cable TV service providers, researching audiences for new TV shows and ideas for new channels, office management and the business of starting up a new venture.
Pros
wide variety of job tasks
Cons
not enough information given to new hires
