Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 11, 2016
Check emails, check the queue, data entry, amend records, setup orders for pickups.I have learned how to write emails and improve customer service management is a little flaky a lot of nepotism and bad ethics as far as moving up within the department/company. My co-workers are friendly and nice and fun to talk and work with. There is really nothing difficult or challenging about this job anyone can do this job. The enjoyable part about this job is when my shift ends.
Good Health Benefits
Not compensated for good work, no moving up within company, everything is a lateral move with no increase in merit.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 6, 2016
The benefits were good but the salaries are usually lower. Great place to start your career in media but you must be willing to work very long hours and be flexible with constantly changing priorities. I loved working at BET, many cool people and a fun working environment. The people were extremely nice and I enjoyed going to work. Always areas for growth and the managers were always helpful. Very talent group of people, dedicated to creative work. I learned so much and would do it again in a heartbeat! I think one of the best companies to work for to learn and grow.
Fun working environment and you get to meeting a lot of talentted people

Organization is filled with lots of great talented people, but overall most brands could stand to overhaul and improve their senior management. See the recent article about the culture shift at Google....
Sales Planner (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 19, 2016
Viacom is a dynamic company with so many brands that appeal to different generations of people. Get work life balance, relaxed work culture and open door policy. The people here are great! However, they do not pay their entry level employees well at all. Competitors are openly paying employees of the same role at least $10-15k more and sometimes even more. It can be disheartening that a company this large and successful focuses so much on compensating the big whigs, but then forget about the work horses that are keeping the company a float.
Great People, Great Networks/Brands, Tons of PTO
Low Entry Level Salaries, Upper Management sometimes out of touch
Technical Research Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 4, 2016
I love working here - such cool work environment. People are extremely nice and I crave to come to work everyday. Sky is the limit to growth and your managers are always helpful to help you grow. I think one of the best companies to work for to learn and grow
Fun place to work but senior management is lacking
Account Manager (Current Employee) – United States – May 29, 2016
The culture of the company is great but the senior C-level management is extremely oblivious to the issues the employees have. Also, if you prove yourself and get promoted internally, you get screwed over with compensation. They pay more if you leave the company and come back instead of rewarding you for being a loyal employee.
Production (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 3, 2016
You can still get a free cup of coffee if you're ok with not having Starbucks. Most people work here for years. Some people grow while some stay in the same roles for years. This place is what you make it but it's not as fun as it used to be I hear.
Great dedication to creative work. Great environment.
Intern (Former Employee) – MTV2 – June 27, 2016
Great dedication to creative work. Great environment. Loved my time working with MTV2 Team! I learned so much as an intern here and would do it again in a heartbeat! I hope I get to freelance here sometime soon.
Legal Coordinator, Business & Legal Affairs (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 10, 2016
Great environment! People are friendly!. You get a lot of training. The overall vibe of the company is fun, spiriting and exciting. I can see why people tend to stay here for a long time. It's encouraging.
Very productive and friendly workplace environment within my team.
Intern (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – January 2, 2016
Working at Viacom was an amazing experience and I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity. A typical day at Viacom was productive, yet relaxing and I always managed to get my work done without leaving the office feeling stressed. I learned a lot during my time at Viacom from simply asking the right questions about a project or assignment to how to take well-written notes on a quarterly report. Overall, I enjoyed my time at Viacom and I would most definitely consider working there again come gradation.
