Prepare yourself

Let me be clear. Disney buying Fox is not good for Viacom. It makes us look smaller and exposes our distribution channels and programming flaws. If we remain as is through 2018 I will be shocked. The question is a big WHEN things happen. Anyone care... read more

No room for growth

I’ve been here for over a year. The opportunity for individuals who deserve to advance within Viacom is rare. Managers have been known to hinder growth of their employees for their own self-interest and create competition for positions which causes... read more

Reorganization with no end in sight

We've started the process of the latest reorganization over a year ago, and while we are supposed to be done with it we seem to be anything but. How long do they plan to keep this uncertainty over our heads? If we knew more about what's going on... read more

A layoff situation

We can't support our old lifestyle and don't offer any value outside of Nick and a little bit of Comedy. Disney and Netflix are monsters. Other TV competitors are all owned by cable providers or about to be. We don't hire from the competition, so... read more

Viacom missed out, now we are paying for it

It's a shame when anyone gets laid off. But after 15+ years I have seen how this company works. Sumner and his over-paid minions missed the boat BIG time over the years and we're all paying for it. Channels will either get sold or a big video or... read more

"Our culture is back..."

Really Shari? You mean the culture that lays off valuable employees due to inept strategy and vision? The culture that is fat at the top with lots of bloated egos and nothing to back it up? Or is it the SVPs and EVPs who got where they are because... read more

What about VIMN and international?

More bloodletting? What about Brexit? Why not handle everything out of the US given that no original productions are produced outside the US except for maybe South Africa.

Netflix earnings call today

Nothing more to add: “Our long thesis remains fully intact,” Mahaney said. As cord-cutting continues, there will be a “dramatic secular shift” away from pay-TV services, which have some 1 billion subscribers today, to internet streaming TV. “Netflix... read more

remaining VH1

Basically got rid of most of the remaining VH1 staff from the previous leadership. This is what frightened leaders do at MTVN now. Wouldn't be surprised if they continue to combine the networks until only the barest of staff and yes peoples remain.
