Manager Media & Technology Services (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 19, 2015
Pros: Training & Education...
Cons: Using your vacations and taking time off...
A typical day at work will start with checking with my team and our ticketing system learning and creating new process working with the management servicing our clients for that location for all VIACOM Businesses... The hardest part of the day is trying to leave on time as my co-workers were always ready to step-up when needed and the best part about working was discussing our strategy to work smarter and being more productive...

Semi-hipster gig, crazy producer, not enough $ to go around though.
Freelance Story Producer, "Pimpeando" (Former Employee), Santa Monica, CAMay 15, 2015
Pros: Got to experience a bit of the TV production world.
Cons: Producer stressed out the majority of the staff, pay was on the low end.
It was interesting to work for the producer but he was very much a type A personality and always ended up rewriting the material I provided. I was hired for my knowledge of the local lowrider car culture but that went out the door when the producer "hipped it up."

Good life/work balance. Professional, intelligent co-workers.
A typical day is spent managing and verifying data.
