Job Work/Life Balance
Fun place to work
Human Resources Information Systems Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NY – February 10, 2015
Pros: access to entertainment industry
Cons: competitive work environment
During the time that I was employed at Viacom they just merged with Paramount/MSG. The company was young and growing. Management was diverse and they promoted diversity. It was a fun place to work and they were innovative with their technology. My position was responsible for HRIS related responsibilities within Viacom and the subsidiary companies. That required a lot of responsibility, attention to accuracy, detail and deadlines. Again it was a very good experience for me.
Wonderful co-workers. Management unaware of work issues.
Post Production Editor (Former Employee), Hauppauge, NY – April 11, 2014
12 hour shifts. Balanced 65 networks. Co-workers fantastic. Daily chores never ended. Management constantly looking for "whose to blame" with all employees. Learned the value of good operating team and efforts between teams.
