Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Studio City, CA – August 8, 2018
A typical day was very relaxed and everyone I worked with at CBS was very helpful. Management was very friendly and would be a place I would like to work in the future. It was a great experience to work for an entertainment company, especially CBS.
Vice President, Broadcast & Cable TV Research (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 28, 2018
I was fortunate to be a part of the CBS Research Department which treated all of its personnel as professional adults. No overbearing oversight. Everyone knew what they were required needed to do and did it, requesting assistance as needed.
Overall work environment was low stress in a high stress, quickly changing business. Efforts were made to encourage young people to grow and expand, including providing advancement opportunities.
Daily interaction was based upon mutual respect with a camaraderie among colleagues. No hierarchical attitude from chain of command. We functioned as a unit and were encouraged to take on responsibility, thus creating a whole which was more than just the sum of its parts.
We interacted with all levels and departments within CBS Corporation, making our own decisions as to the right answer or approach, seeking guidance or advice when necessary.
Friendly, professional work environment; occasional working from home permitted
Guest Relations Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 24, 2017
Most people would love this job except for the hours from 4 am until 12 noon. I met an enormous amount of famous people, including Presidents and politicians. Many of them I became close to after their frequent visits to the program. I was in charge of meeting and greeting the live guests in our New York studios and taking care of their every needs. Some days we would have 1 guests other days 100. It was never boring.
Senior Media Coordinator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – November 28, 2016
My time at CBS was nothing but euphoric, to say the least. I truly enjoyed every aspect of my job. From answering phones for the VP, to scheduling on-air promotions. Even the weekly meetings got me smiling! The job was fun and extremely rewarding.
I had minimal experience going in. They showed me the ropes and cross-trained me to various jobs.
The most enjoyable part of the job, for me, was the fact that we were at an active studio. They were filming something new just about every day!
Fun staff, great work perks, enjoyable work, Pto, Benefits
PROP MASTER (Former Employee) – Elementary – August 22, 2015
There is no such thing as a typical day of work. I graduated 4 years of film school and everything I learned was on the job. The hardest part are the 12-16 hour days, 5 days a week. It's enjoyable to be artistic and to dress a set that will be filmed for a tv show or movie. I would prefer to work 3 days a week and teach 2. The weekly hours working in the film business are 60-70. Working in the movie business can be very rewarding but the hours are what make the career something you physically can't do up until retirement age.
New and exciting - a true in the moment job with a professional team!
Freelance (Current Employee) – Los Angeles – May 27, 2015
Our team was responsible for behind the scenes interviews and footage for upcoming pilots premiering on the Network. We would work and coordinate with the show production crew and set up interviews with the Executive Producers, Creators and Talent for each particular show. It was an exciting job and surrounded me with the best of the best in today's Network Television world. This Network raises the bar and truly makes for a happy work environment.
Senior Media Coordinator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 7, 2015
It is a good company to work for - the opportunities here are great. I learned a lot during my time here. There are a lot of business operations that I otherwise wouldn't have known about the entertainment industry. Management could be a lot better. There is a lot of dead weight.
VTR Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) – Hollywood, CA – September 23, 2014
CBS TV was a very high tech company to work for. They seldom do things the shortcut way. Most of the time, we get what we need to attain the results that is needed for a high class TV business. I learned a lot while I was employed at CBS TV. And I gave everything that I have to offer too.
Fast paced where the best and the brightest rise to the top.
Sales Planning Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 9, 2014
CBS is a great place to work. The Sales Planning Department has a fast paced professional work atmosphere where the best and the brightest rise to the top. A typical day at work involves a lot of Nielsen rating analysis and multitasking between the Planning Vice Presidents and the Sales department.
Long client lunches.
Demanding work load and long hours during the upfront season.
Exciting and challenging company with extensive media exposure.
Advertising Sales Planner (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 29, 2013
Higher ups are constantly looking for the next Account Executives. Therefore, culture revolves around becoming a good salesperson - social, outgoing and intelligent. Great training and plenty of mentors.
CWD Distribution (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 9, 2012
CWD is the worst place to work. Management has no clue what they are doing - there is no communication, management or organization whatsoever. If they make mistakes along the way, oh no, better not tell them. Not only will they turn around and blame you for their mistakes, but they will throw you under the bus, treat you in a condescending manner for months on end and retaliate any way they can, even if it means embarrassing you in front of your co-workers. When things go wrong, they will blame you even if it's not your fault. They spend their time lying to each other and going on numerous coffee and cigarette breaks. When catastrophe strikes, they are no where to be found. You can e-mail till your fingers fall off and they will never respond; you can call them till umpteen times and they will never pick up. They have meetings every day, won't communicate the results to their team, but will expect you to know what the outcome is thru osmosis. They will make up rules to suit themselves one day, enforce them with their teams, but then they will forget them the next day. They have been there for so long, yet they don't know how to use the basic operating systems. They play favorites and will go thru an entire process to sweep their mistakes under the rug. They will promote incompetence - it's their motto. They don't know how to set aside their personal lives from their professional lives and in the end, they end up putting the most incompetent coordinator/technican/librarian/shipper/scheduler up on a pedestal. Sounds like a dream place to work, huh?
Sales & Advertising Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 28, 2012
Everyone is really friendly so it is an enjoyable place to work. A typical day is usually spent moving inventory around and ensuring the clients are happy. Management, as well as fellow co-workers are very approachable and very helpful. The hardest part of the job is if something happens last minute, you are running around trying ensure traffic/information is all in, in order for the show to be formatted correctly. The most enjoyable part is the people you interact with on a daily basis; whether it be your co-workers or your clients.
free lunches, interaction with people in the industry, put faces to names when you go on client lunches
