Protests in front of 1515 wouldn’t take long to get attention. ViacomCBS needs to acknowledge the absurd about of freelancers it has in full-time, staff positions simply to avoid paying for benefits. THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN THERE ARE THEM!!! It’s... — read more
Or have you, like me, lost all motivation and are hardly doing even the bare minimum?
I started looking after a friend warned me that with the recession looming, now might be my last chance to leave my current job and find something equal or better. Well, I've been looking for the past month and I've already had several interviews and... — read more
It has come to the attention that company has given raises to those who earn under 60k. Major adjustments for some. Nothing to the employees over that amount. So if are are 15 year employee making over that threshold, even a dollar, you get... — read more
Horrible management, the worst I've ever had the displeasure to work for. First of all, most of them are incompetent. Second of all, they love to micromanage our every move for no good reason. And third of all, they use intimidation tactics to keep... — read more
Just Ignoring it doesn't make it disappear. RTO has been a sh-t show and colleagues have been catching covid but yes... announce that the pandemic is over...
In NYC, and other cities, given the uptick in violent crime and as----t in general, one would think the logical move would be for the company to provide hybrid models for ALL employees, not just management/clerical. Instead, ViacomCBS seems hellbent... — read more
Given the plethora of veeps running the abysmal CBS morning show, and two co-presidents to boot, it's inevitable layoffs of the underlings must occur. Remember, this is the network that fires TDs when ratings slump.
Maybe the Lord will have mercy on me and make sure I'm in the next round.
If there's any truth the company may sell after settling, whether to or Amazon or anyone else, it might behoove the membership to vote no, regardless of the contractual offer. Why give the present management an easy out?
Paramount is who-ing out Star Trek the way Disney wh--es out Star Wars. Pi-ps, all.
Rumors regarding an Amazon purchase of a Paramount content-only transaction making the financials this evening. Unknown as to what will happen with the brick and mortar parts that remain; possible liquidation.
So you have enough money for yet another ENTIRE rebrand, but you don’t have enough to staff employees? Quit stringing us along! We are full time and deserve benefits!!
The list of things that should be changed here is so long, that it is not easy to single out just one thing that would be the highest priority. What would you change here first?
Sounds like Bakish and co. are doing everything they can to distance themselves from the affiliate model and stream on. Better hope they develop better content, because streaming Ghosts ain't gonna cut it.
Perhaps more importantly, Q4 earnings miss the estimates. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/viacomcbs-adds-record-9-4-million-streaming-subscribers-in-quarter-11644960239
I have no words for this... https://nypost.com/2022/02/07/cbs-news-hires-firm-of-network-co-chiefs-brother-to-advise-on-layoffs/
I worked in several companies before I came here and left primarily in search of better options, not because I was particularly dissatisfied with anything. This is the only company I leave with regrets and bad taste in my mouth. In fact, it... — read more
This company has totally drained my energy. It's getting harder and harder for me to get everything done. I am completely demoralized by the fact that while I am overwhelmed with work, some colleagues hardly do anything. The distribution of work... — read more
Just quit. It's not getting any better
at ViacomCBS seem a bit hypocritical when talent, on every show, regardless of distancing, can be seen sans mask. So, masking only applies to behind-the-scenes workers? Also, why should masking apply to those who have already been post positive? It's... — read more
The only thing better than retirement is being retired while you're still working at the company.
is never around at CBS. Company policy now allows them unlimited vacation, which translates to very little work being done. Great strategy for a business.
Dekoupil the new Jeff Glor. Next on the block? G. King. No kidding. News purge. And, it took two co-presidents to do this? Divest now.
Some loser has been posting about his new job at Hackman Capital over and over and nobody says anything about layoffs, which I know have occurred
...is a great show, but perhaps it's time for CBS to try Undercover Employee and out all the cr---y bosses, especially at their own place.
Watch all the CBS errors, especially during live sports, and know that the place is loaded with bloated meeting dwellers who'll bamboozle the management levels above them and do nothing to fix the problem. It's riotous!
When you'd rather get laid off than stay and work, you must smarter than a CBS employee.
If you're planning to stay here for a while, you better learn the timeless art of backstabbing. That has become the main method of dealing with people here - on all levels. I thought as employees we were all in this together, or at least it was us... — read more
I'm leaving soon and I don't think I'll look back too much. I'll finally get some relief when I leave. However, I’m still sorry because I think this company could have done a lot better. When people leave, it may be easy to replace them. However... — read more
More and more bangin' out because of the Rona. The rest work from home anyway. Only the labor folk remain, enhancing the Bakish spongy empire. Weak legs?
Your ideas and plans for back to office are terrible. 2 years no performance evaluation speaks how stale the work culture is. It's a shame for an inclusive company can't even evaluate employee performance appraisal. If you claim inclusive, do you... — read more
CBS...the Alamo of broadcasting.
Even working at McDonald's would be an improvement in many, many ways (sadly, for some it would be an improvement in pay as well.) I wouldn't advise this place even to people who are desperate for a job. Why punish them further? If you're smart... — read more
It's always productive when you have a manager who looks at his subordinates as so many monkeys in a cage, meanwhile genuflecting to his own upper tier but offering little to the industrious common cause. THAT'S a prize but never a surprise.
Blueness once again invades CBS air, and at the end of two good football games. As Vince Lombardi would have said, "WHAT THE HE-L IS GOING ON OUT THERE?" I suppose you could chalk up the technical SNAFUs to the pandemic, but that's as weak an... — read more
It's highly unlikely any layoffs are coming as they can hardly keep employees as it is. Even in higher-paying union areas, people are leaving because many of the other areas are comprised of people now working from home which has bred obvious... — read more
Viacom has always had a propensity towards hiring outside. Now they have manager turnover syndrome.
