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.

Amazon Rumors

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.

Things to change

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?


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.

Broadcast is balderdash!

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.

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 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 

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!

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.


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 


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.

Any place is better

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 


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.
