Work culture was super fun and young, hosting happy hours and holiday parties, but it mainly serves as a distraction for how compartmentalized the company is.
if you time it right, you can eat for free each day by finding which floors are being catered
if you want to see the fruits of your labor, look for a job somewhere else
Company has gone through so many changes -layoffs every year for almost a decade, constant restructuring and now, a merger - all of which have negatively impacted morale. (Hard to feel loyal when it's abundantly clear you're replaceable) Collective mood, even before the pandemic, has always been cynical; people just waiting for their post-layoff severance for a chance to take a mental break. Few are paid what they deserve, the company is constantly short staffed across departments and Management's actions show "open door policies" and "suggestion boxes" are for appearances ONLY.
People/culture are very nice
Always understaffed, don't pay well
Culture is poor. To get things done management relies on aggression. A lot of suspicion, accusations, and distrust.If you are “in” with management this may be better but if you are not it gets in the way of getting things done. No benefits or flexibility.
Job seekers rely on your experience.
Every work experience is unique. Let people know your thoughts on previous employers.
Great benefits and for the most part great people to work with in a culture that rewards accomplishments. However, it’s also a culture where there is very little job security.
Not a clock watching culture
Job security is not a given even if you are an excellent performer
A typical day at College of Biblical Studies, As a Tutor I have schedule appointment through out the day, and I have learned to be contempt, which my circumstances in my life.I love the workplace culture, where you always smile at the students, which i always find compassion and kindness at workplace . I have used to encourage my students to do better at academics and the hardest part of of the job, when the students did not canceled schedule appointments and I have to come back home without seeing the students to give tips for study English Grammar and Spanish Grammar.
Executive focused culture that highly compensates executive leadership, while giving minimal raises to middle management and junior staff. Post merger, roles were assigned based on relationships not the individual best suited for the role. This will further delay the ability of the companies to integrate fully, as seen in the selection of a new CFO within 7 months post closure, when all legacy Viacom folks had already been fired from Treasury and Tax functions.
Competitive benefits, name recognition of brands
non-executive salary, culture

Constant threat of layoffsTop heavy structureLow wagesThe definition of “corporate machine”As the industry changes, Viacom is scrambling to profit. For years, this has meant “work staff harder, pay less or just hire young, inexperienced people who will work for less.” Of course, this benefits only Viacom. As a creative, one of the most soul crushing work cultures I’ve ever been in. We called it “Evil Corp.”

In Finance, as expected, the work was very cyclical. I enjoyed (& learned the most from) ad hoc projects that fell outside of our normal business cycle reporting. I thought I had a growth plan setup with my management team but it was not adhered to which was disappointing. Be clear on what your personal objectives are. Company tried to have good culture (employee activities, etc). Benefits are excellent. Comp is good at Corporate (above the Mgr level).
Bullying and discrimination is a HUGE problem at this company and my department was especially problematic in that regard. My manager was a narcissistic selfish monster whose main goal was to make everyone in our department feel as miserable and unappreciated as possible. Then when the rounds of layoffs happened, all of the bullies and monsters kept their jobs but all of the victims got fired. FUNNY HOW THAT WORKS RIGHT?I hope this company gets sued by many of the good employees they let go.
lack of job security, sociopathic management, subpar raises, culture of nepotism and favoritism
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.
Great office and company culture, awesome people to work with. Good flexibility for work from home. Good management. Very poor benefits and no job security.
