Does anyone know what’s going on with the hiring freeze? Length of time, etc? Or possible explanations. I’ve been told they aren’t filling any positions for those who leave.

Rumor is people are quitting within a specific area of Viacom/CBS, now Paramount rebranded. Who runs this area and why aren't they being dealt with properly? Perhaps the company has sunk to a new low point where the philosophy of "why lay them off if... —  read more 

The Big Joke

People are still working from home while essential staff has no ability to do so; never has. Yet, compensation from the company for essential workers vanished a long time ago. Time to bring back the compensation or bring back the non-essential... —  read more 


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 

Jobs are still aplenty

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 

Hybrid Working Models

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.

Union Contract IBEW

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?

Nora Gone

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.

my favorite thing to do

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!

The damage is irreparable

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
