leadership needs change
I worked for someone that had no passion for the business. Led by someone without the desire of growth. That person sat in a position for years and became lethargic.

Meeting Creative Individuals who challenges you to do better
Making 350 a day doing something that was absolutely fun.. was the best times in my life. Traveling all around the world spreading and learning new cultures. Encouraging the younger generation at the company to challenge themselves to do better. Which will always secure a place for others to come and perform their best.

Very fun place to work
If I had to have a desk to sit behind I would only do it for this company. I have worked for others and believe me when I say, this is a company you need to stay with. I left hoping to grow with another company. If I didn't switch careers I would go back and work for Viacom in a heartbeat.

Fun place to work at
It was great working at this place. Fast-paced environment which causes day to go by faster. Not too much room for growth however and the salary is not competitive.

Take a pass on this place
You need to kiss butt in order to move up, once you hit a cerrtain age, they will do what they can to push you out...Anyone who is an SVP and above cannot be trusted, only lookout for themselves, will throw anyone under the bus to keep their high paying job. Benefits are expensive, NY office gets more perks then west coast. They have been on the best places to work on working mothers list for several years. Most of it is exaggerated lies, and only applies to NY office. Take a pass on this place.
Pros
office space is nice

Old guard, potect themselves in clutchs
Not a hoidplace to work, you will become the excuse, not the solution. Culture on a personal level is ok at times including Thursday happy hour in the office, but not a place to succeed.

productive and fun workplace
Great place to learn. Friendly environment. Hardest part was the commute as I lived a bit far, but work was enjoyable and not very stressful. Workplace culture was fun.

Layoffs are a frequent part of work
I felt like management did not share information or opportunity. Learning was not part of the culture. Senior Managers tended to be overly difficult to work with.
Pros
Exciting product
Cons
60 hour weeks

Great company not room to grow
The company has great benefits, location, and name. Theres opportunity for mobility with in the different brands, but people tends to stay so there’s little room to grow. Large rotation of freelancers usually keeps the creative work fresh, but hiring and moving up tends to take long times.

Interesting place to start a career in media.
Viacom doesn't pay well and even though they say there is always room to advance you career there, its not really true. Most of the Development is being off-shored and they are not responsive to new technologies.

Productive and fun work experience
Interning there was great, they do have two offices in the city so it is best if you are familiar with the subway because you might have to go to both

The employees are amazing and talented.
Lately, a typical day at work is checking a million emails and taking calls, then traveling all the time. I meet the most incredible individuals during my work travel adventures.

Productive work environment, great/knowledgable staff
I enjoyed my time with Viacom and working with my team directly. I had the opportunity to work on a number of creative interactive projects and was given creative freedom to come up with compelling concepts. My directors/seniors were also very open to providing guidance and support when needed.
