Process Coordinator (Former Employee), CaracasAugust 17, 2015
Pros: Good ambiance
Cons: Low wages
Working on TV always represents a lot of under pressure work, especially when you're working with a whole Continent's viewers, but of course it allows you to learn so many things and they count with amazing people to work with.
Unfortunely, wage isn't that good.

Strategic Marketing, Planning, Drving Result, Optimization
Assistant Manager Promotion Planning and Analysis (Current Employee), New York, NYJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: company reputation, healthcare benefits, office space, stability
Cons: slow to modernize, lack of growth due to employee tenure
I am responsible for the strategic planning and promotion of HBO and Cinemax programming across linear and non-linear platforms. On a typical day in the office, I will gather all information (ie. research predictions, ratings, post analysis reports) pertaining to upcoming campaigns and create a unique on air marketing strategy to maximize reach and effectiveness. Based on our on air strategy we will then align our plan with MAX GO, HBO GO and On Demand, to maximize reach and frequency. Once these plans have been formulated and approved by upper management, my team then informs the creative team and assets are created and released based on the planning strategy and implement the plan. Once our plans have been set into motion, we then track the campaign monitoring its progression and ensure proper pacing and results.
I also attend daily meetings with Information Technology as we work on a software development to optimize promotion planning and tracking.
I most enjoy the creativity and strategy part of the business. It's also satisfying to see results that impact the business as a whole, such as the optimization of software for the department. The most difficult part of the business is pleasing all parties when there are so many ongoing campaigns at one time and prioritizing the campaigns based on available air time.

Winter is coming
Mac IT Consultant (Current Employee), New York, NYJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: great environment, helpful atmosphere, low stress, game of thrones!
Cons: worked as a consultant so no healthcare, vacation pay or other benefits.
Working for this company has been the first time I have been employed in an enterprise environment. Coming from the hustle and bustle of performing Helpdesk support this was a welcomed change in pace. Assisting fellow employees is not as exhaustive as assisting customers. Great place to work even more impressive swag due to all the shows that HBO produces.
