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.
Development and Programming Coordinator - MTV2 (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 19, 2018
Working at Viacom is a great entry level job, for those who want to cut their teeth in the entertainment industry. It's a great job at a starter level, because you're more concerned with getting in aside and not the lack of benefits, vacation time, pay, or advancement. You do need to leave the company to get a higher title and pay.
Fun work environment, diverse, can work on a lot of different things
VH1 Development Intern (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 13, 2018
Walking into Viacom gives you a "I made it sense". It's very colorful, high energy and working in development, everyone really is competitive and are trying to break the next big tv show. I loved being there!
Intern - IT and IS Department (Former Employee) – New York, NY 10036 – June 6, 2018
Granted I was only an intern at this office but the job is really self taught (for the most part). I worked with their IS and IT departments operating multiple floors within their 52 floor building complex. When I say self-taught I mean they will work with you to understand how the work flow is but if you are fully capable of taking on task on your own they will treat you as if you are working fulltime there. I got to the point in my internship where I wasn't under any major supervision but I could handle pretty much any task on my own with minimal supervision. Pretty much if you're good at what you do, they will take notice and let you take on task on your own as they become available. I love this. Great place to work.
Lots of free time if work is done, great management, friendly work enviornment, room for growth
No time off if you're an intern unless for medical/family reasons. Low pay for interns in IT.
Great company to work at for early career or creative talent
Sr. Director, Organizational Effectiveness (OE) (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 5, 2018
Good working environment, but individual leadership and politics make a big difference in the work-life experiences. Very committed people that work hard and play hard. Creativity and self-expression are plentiful and appreciated.
Mostly Good People, Creative and Fun Place, Inclusive
Creative Services Project Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 4, 2018
I enjoyed my time working at Viacom - I spent over 7 years working there starting as a summer associate. It was my dream to work at MTV and that dream came true. I enjoyed the culture and everything I learned here. My only criticism is that due to low turnaround, a very top heavy team, getting promoted is not easy nor is getting a salary increase.
Nickelodeon (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 1, 2018
Culturally ingrained "mean girl/gossip girl" mentality. Men and women. There will be no change if executives don't shift the culture with the clique-ish behavior and promoting gossippers, and even participating themselves.
reduced prices for food
diversity issues, and micro-managers vying for relevance
Engineer (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY 11788 – May 23, 2018
I was there for 18 years and I've seen all sorts or questionable practices going on there. There is virtually no room for advancement and no one really appreciates the time and effort you put into doing your job, they will tell you that they do but it doesn't show in compensation. There are so many projects to complete but most of them are under funded and have ridiculous deadlines. I would not advise anyone to work there, believe me, I was there a long time so I know the truth.
Temp. Only - friendly environment. I worked as a temp but the working situation seemed to be good for regular employees. Nice building and contemporary setting. Often provided meals for special occasions.
