Support from management

Variable management - most just trying to protect their own jobs.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Once you're over 40, your days are numbered with few exceptions. No one other than executive management is hired post-40.

Office / Work Environment

It's good when the layoffs aren't looming.

Work-Life Balance

Best time off policy anywhere!

Company Image

Better now that the management turmoil seems to be settling down to normal.

Job Security

Zippo. Everyone gets laid off eventually. No one retires from Viacom.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Good luck, Bob! If anyone can turn the ship around, it's you.

What I like about the company

When it's good, it's great. When layoffs are in the air, as they regularly are, it's bad.

What I dislike about the company

Blatant ageism, regular layoffs. Too often they've been short-sighted - focused more on quarterly profits than long-term strategy. Hopefully, BB will bring vision back to Viacom - it's been lacking for too long.

Support from management

People are often promoted into management roles because they are good producers although not necessarily good managers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Viacom is good at racial and sexual diversity but drops the ball when it comes to older or physically disabled employees. Stop just talking the talk, and walk the walk.

What I like about the company

The benefits and time off policies are great. Good comraderie, for the most part.

What I dislike about the company

Eventually, everyone gets laid off - especially once you're over 40. People over 40 are rarely hired at all. It's painfully clear that you're expendable - all that matters is that the top execs make their bonus.
