Great content and programming but poor lower management
Supervisor (Current Employee) – West Hollywood, CA – February 11, 2019
Not much opportunity for growth from within. Micro managers who will not delegate and allow for personal development. If you’re experienced and have ideas for streamlining processes, they are not interested. Some employees have been here for 20 + years and have never worked anywhere else. It is the rare office where you do see older, more seasoned employees, but just not in my specific department.
Great new office space
Fiefdom style management; not willing to change with times
Field Producer (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 3, 2019
I was hired in a free-lance capacity. I don't feel this represents my experience. I worked on a series Who is America as a field producer. I was hired to interview government officials for a new series. I had to remain professional, calm and interview subjects without breaking into laughter.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Altamonte Springs, FL – January 1, 2019
I've worked for SHOWTIME for about of year and 6 months The money was okay to get me started on my feet but SHOWTIME isn't a company I saw myself growing. The inconsistent was horrible on the management part.
The company wanted employees to come into work on holidays however does not offer time in half for pay.
Post-Production Consultant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 4, 2018
I loved working for Showtime and definitely would have stayed if they had a full time position for me. Then I ended up re-locating out of state. It's so great to work for a company with a well-made product you love, great management and great employees.
One of the best companies I have ever had the pleasure of working for
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – November 29, 2017
The only call center I have ever worked for, and it will probably stay that way because most call centers are all the same. Not ShowingTime. The call center is run by a wonderful businesswoman whom I learned so much in the years I was there. She also truly cares about her employees, that is not something you see anymore. It feels like a little family there. And the best part is they would let a previous employee come back faster than any other company.
Paid breaks, relaxed scheduling system, choices of part of full time
A typical day at work. We all receive a specific food to demo and we all try to sell as much as we can to help our store and to get customers interested in new things. By the next day we are able to see how much we sold, which keeps us motivated.
There wasn't much opportunity for growth, and lacked motivation
Assistant Coordinator (Former Employee) – West Los Angeles, CA – November 2, 2017
I was hoping there would be a lot more opportunity for growth at Showtime Networks, especially in what I hoped would become an internal music division. There was no motivation to stay or grow and lack of opportunity was uninspiring me as an individual in general.
I met some wonderful people during my time there. A good team!
No room for growth and most rewarded those who were within the company for years rather experience.
Finance Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 12, 2017
Great people, great content, good job security. Roles fall into big corporate structure model of CBS, thus lacking some dynamic aspects. Management very open to new ideas and career advancement if opportunities are available in the skinny structure.
Financial Account Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 2, 2017
My coworkers and I had a conversation last week about how much we wish we would be laid off. That's kind of enough said. I used to think this unhappy culture was just my team, but it's not. Young people here are pretty miserable. The new head of HR is trying to make things better, but her hands are tied by CBS's refusal to invest in its employees.
I never have to stay too late.
So much., Managers abuse their employees due to their own lack of upward mobility /acknowledgement., Higher-ups are oblivious to how their underlings are feeling., There is rarely a forum for feedback.
