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...
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
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.
Paramount is who-ing out Star Trek the way Disney wh--es out Star Wars. Pi-ps, all.
Maybe the Lord will have mercy on me and make sure I'm in the next round.
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/
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!!
Perhaps more importantly, Q4 earnings miss the estimates. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/viacomcbs-adds-record-9-4-million-streaming-subscribers-in-quarter-11644960239
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?
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
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.
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.
Just quit. It's not getting any better
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
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
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
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!
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.
The only thing better than retirement is being retired while you're still working at the company.
...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.
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.
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
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
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
When you'd rather get laid off than stay and work, you must smarter than a CBS employee.
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
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
You ever stop and take a look around you? I used to love working here. But now when I look it’s just difficult to realize how much things have changed. Many here had such passion in their roles and we supported one another whenever possible. But now... — 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.
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
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.
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.
don't make any issues, just do the work
Rumours are mounting about a possible work stoppage at a major CBS venue, possibly NY, LA or both. Union worker discontent?
