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.
PBEs need to walk out now more than ever. Viacom’s “contract” employees need to stand up for themselves now more than ever. The company cannot function without you.
https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/business/story/2021-11-30/viacom-sells-cbs-studio-radford-lot-hackman So glad I work with Hackman now:). CBS you done.
Rumours are mounting about a possible work stoppage at a major CBS venue, possibly NY, LA or both. Union worker discontent?
don't make any issues, just do the work
Last year, next week we had layoffs. Let’s see how things play out before the holiday. Anyone hear anything?
An incredible amount of backstabbers, arrogant mediocrities and people who can’t spend a day without spreading gossip. That’s the company’s current culture. I have not experienced such toxicity in any company in which I previously worked. Can a... — read more
I hear a lot of rumors about big layoffs around the corner. I don't want to alarm anyone, I just want to check if anyone has more information about this?
Leslie Moonves: YOU SHOULD HAVE KEPT ME :)
Back to the topic, has anyone heard that there could be layoffs by the end of the year? I hope to be able to spend the holiday season without that stress.
And who's the top contender of course? HACKMAN. So glad I work for them now instead of CBS. I hope he buys it and throws everyone else and we take... — read more
There used to be healthy competition here. Now it seems to me that the company no longer encourages any healthy competition which implies stimulation of better performance, but a very toxic comparison with others which results in backstabbing... — read more
I don't know one person who'd willingly say they enjoy working here. We have to put up with so much toxicity and abusive behavior on a daily basis that I'm sometimes surprised our attrition is not five times worse than it already is. ViacomCBS needs... — read more
Contrators, if we want to get paid we have to make sure our manager is in a good mood for them to sign the time sheet. Email pushers get hired and contractors get the short end of the stick. sick of this sh-t.
Heard a rumor that the company is gonna get bought up by another big fish. Anyone else hear anything about that?
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-08-23/viacomcbs-eyes-sale-of-l-a-studio-as-demand-surges-for-stages Good riddance. The way CBS treated their employees this is the least that can happen to them Keep selling yourself until you have... — read more

Even the contract employees had to write the essay on why we should keep our jobs and not be laid off and what we planned to do to make this combined disaster a better company. If was upstairs first thing would have done would be to make things that... — read more
I have heard from my manager that when we return to the office, to minimize COVID risk we will only be allowed to use the restrooms at pre-scheduled times and will otherwise have to hold it. Yet I’m sure that Bob goes whenever and wherever! — read more
I’m a project based employee not tied to any projects and was hired during the pandemic/ my contract continues to be renewed. I did not receive the survey back in March on what my opinions were for returning to the office but I am required to do so... — read more
Some big company like Comcast or Amazon will scoop up Viacom CBS for pennies, I would say they are worth about 10 cents total these days. So glad I left that company and the future is so bright www.tvc2050.com
Has anyone else heard this rumor? Curious how it will pan out.
