Tech Support and Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 26, 2018
CBS All Access was not anything like I expected, but it turned out to be pretty interesting. It wasn't for everyone, but once you learned the ropes, the job became bearable. Although, sometimes you would have some very angry customers, but most of the customers had problems that were quickly fixable. Also, the overtime that was offered to us was simply amazing. I was making an extra 300-500 dollars a week, just for working 1 overtime shift on one of my days off. Lastly, the management. I enjoyed conversing with some of my supervisors, however, there were a couple of supervisors who were extremely rude and sometimes even condescending. I understand that constructive criticism is a must for any workplace, but I felt that I was treated differently because of my ethnic background. This only applied to a couple of supervisors. Overall, I enjoyed my time with this company.
Overtime and weekly pay
Management was rude and most of the customers were irate

CBS is a sweat shop. They are in a very competitive business. They have had bad luck offshoring to India. When football season starts, you will need to work extra hours, but when the end of football season comes, you will have to worry about losing your job.
Fun, fast-paced place to work with great exercise gym.

The culture is great, there are plenty of social events and the exercise center below is awesome. Three food trucks everyday for lunch. Only complaint is the structure in place for raises is long and bureaucratic.

CBSi is lacking good culture, good pay, and good advancement opportunities. Very political environment with many obstacles that keep you from doing your job. There are decent perks such as interesting speakers, monthly happy hours, and monthly canine Fridays, however it seems to be lagging in culture and other benefits compared to tech companies in the surrounding area.
Canine Fridays, good work/life balance, interesting speakers

CBSi's headquarters building is pretty nice. They got it as part of the CNET acquisition, so it's state of the art early 2000's dot com aesthetic.
For dot com, they are very light on swag. I got one piece of swag in two years. The company parties were pretty modest. The winter holiday party was just in the office with kegs and appetizers.
They have a dozens of digital properties, both internally conceived and acquired. It was never clear to me how they worked together. They all seemed very independent with just common corporate resources (sales/marketing, finance) shared.

CBS Interactive is a great place to work and grow your skills in digital marketing. Advancement is tough and for any changes to be made, it takes several months as this is a public company and approvals take forever

If you do not fall into the social norm or groups that have already been made then this is not the place for you. Also, don't take a nap outside in the public courtyard/lunch area, you can be fired for that.
