Manager, Standards & Practices (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 14, 2018
Viacom provides a great work/life balance. They give employees the time to spend with their family (Summer Fridays, PTO). Salary isn't as comparable to other networks, but the time you have off balances it out.
Monitoring and Helpdesk Associate (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – October 31, 2018
Viacom should have been a great place to work. It did have a great and relaxed culture, busy-pace, and fun events. However, it wasn't enough to overshadow how their operational strategies negatively affected their employees.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Franklin, TN – October 24, 2018
Terrible management. Only advance the people they attend church with. Constant layoffs and lies from managers. Long stressful hours...no wonder they are closing this office, but it won't improve when they move into the CMT building downtown
Good place to work with good potential and excellent co-workers
Asset Management / Receiving Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 16, 2018
This company gave me the opportunity, through out the years, to grow in knowledge and develop my skills, they also provided the necessary training needed to accomplish my tasks. It is a fun and ever changing environment with lots of challenges which makes working there a very unique and special experience.
Amazing place to work. Awesome work life balance with good management. However, Viacom is going through a personnell transition.
Buyer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 9, 2018
A typical work day is busy but relaxed and Viacom has a environment that's all inclusive and team oriented. I learned so much more about purchasing and tax laws working at Viacom. I also learned better time management skills. The hardest part of the job is learning the system and which states are tax exempt for procurement purchases. The most enjoyable part of the job is that it is everchanging and I am still learning something new everyday.
Great atmosphere, work-life balance, pay.
Takes a long time to get hired on as a contract worker.
Corporate Communications Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 26, 2018
Really great internship experience. People within the team were willing to help you become your best self. A typical day at work included looking over newspapers for any recent coverage on our programming. I learned how to be a very strategical writer. The hardest part about the job was keeping up with press we were receiving. The most enjoyable part was conversing with everyone on the team on a daily basis.
Vice President & Assistant Controller (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 25, 2018
Viacom provided an environment where you could learn and excel. The people were dedicated to their jobs and genuinely liked working for the company. The work/life balance could be challenging at times given the demands of the job however there were non-financial perks available to compensate such as tickets to awards shows, department outings, etc.
Senior Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Miami Beach, FL – August 30, 2018
Day to day was managing and dealing with digital deliveries to LATAM clients, at the same time dealing with customer support to our clients. The hardest part of the job was meeting deadlines, and finishing last minute deliveries. The enjoyable part of my day to day were the people I worked with, they made the job appealing and pleasant to work with while having a relaxed working environment while maintaining deadlines. What I learned is that everything you do is being part of a team, you need to manage expectations and sometimes take action when iy is not presented to you.
Executive Assistant to the SVP, Talent Acquisition (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 27, 2018
Ever since I was a child, I wondered what it would be like to work for the company behind some of my favorite shows and films from my childhood and well into adulthood. I was so honored to be offered my position. The culture is absolutely fantastic! There's always something fun going on in terms of events, training sessions, mixers, etc. Also, I was fortunate enough to work with the fantastic talent acquisition team. The TA team is more of a family. It was a pleasure working with them and being able to connect with hundreds of people throughout the organization across all of our brands,
Fun atmosphere, GREAT benefits, awesome people to work with, tons of events and movie screenings, etc.
I'd say the only con I have is currently all the layoffs Viacom is currently experiencing.
Logistics Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 21, 2018
A typical day working at Viacom will strongly depend on your department. However, as a former Logistic Specialist our days would consist of placing commercials on a specific network on a particular day. I've learned how the sales team and logistics team work hand and hand to complete the process of airing commercials. The culture at Viacom is employee friendly. The hardest part of the job is staying late due to busy times during the year. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you become close to.
Associate, Master Data Governance (Current Employee) – Franklin, TN – August 9, 2018
I really enjoyed working at Viacom Global. All of my managers were great and worked very hard. They were very knowledgeable and willing to teach/explain the business to their employees. I will miss working in this type of non-competitive employment.
