Nickelodeon Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Nickelodeon (often shortened to Nick) is an American pay television channel which was first tested on December 1, 1977, until it eventually launched on April 1, 1979 as the first cable channel for children. It is owned by ViacomCBS through its domestic networks division and is based in New York City. The network's programming is primarily aimed at children and adolescents aged 2–17, while some of its program blocks target a broader family audience.
A dissapointed customer said this in a review: "I grew up watching Nickelodeon channel, it was awesome when I was little, all the cartoons were the best. Now that I’m 27 years old, I currently love watching cartoon today but Nickelodeon tv has became awful now. There are more live action shows about kids that play now that became really dumb and stupid. I just want my childhood cartoons from Nickelodeon back and get rid of the live action children television shows".
Former Employee - Vice President Production Technology says"This is something that happened when I was laid due to restructuring. After I was my last day, my then boss (no longer works at the company) decided that all the locks and door access needed to be changed because as she mentioned to my colleagues that she was afraid I would come back and steal stuff. In hindsight I was the only african american in the department and the only one she mentioned. Racism is alive and real at Viacom, it only shows up in small moments but this has been bothering me for a while and it feels good to finally voice it."
Current Employee - Designer says"All good projects get sent to outside design companies. Nickelodeon art director by the name Carlo a true a hole"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"NY execs fearful of making contents that the6 don’t understand. Choosing inexpensive coproductions over the bread and butter of half hour comedy that has been the provider of orange carpet talent for the ad sales party, I mean Kids Choice awards."
says"Any administrative work is chaotically managed, HR is not supportive, communication is deeply broken, Viacom corporate significantly mishandled my Visa process to the point where I could no longer continue working for the corporation."
Former Employee - Manager says"- Upper management has become so afraid to take any chances or create anything new that they have been left behind in a fast changing industry. -The current leadership is completely out of touch with its (former) audience. - Middle management are yes men and women who are reactive instead of proactive. - Their definition of change is to layoff entire departments annually."
Current Employee - Digital Producer says"Opportunities only really exist if you are Caucasian. I've seen Latin and African American employees in multiple depts overlooked for promotions despite being in the job longer, being more qualified, and doing just as much/as well as their Caucasian counterparts."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"The worst boss in the world. A soulless hack who has never worked anywhere else, a creature who crawled up the corporate ladder by default because she had betrayed everyone around her, and who now enriches herself at everyone else's expense."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Very unsupportive work environment, lack of leadership and negative atmosphere. Senior management was very unprofessional and downright mean. Have never experienced such a negative and harsh environment particularly with one senior executive."
Former Employee - Designer/Animator says"If you're a young moderately attractive gay male creative applying to Nickelodeon's preschool animation dept, the VP of creative might hit on you while interviewing you."
Former Employee - ASM Manager says"Na dont work in Bharatpe"
chef/ bar/ server (Former Employee) says"can be a good place to work in depending what type of people you would like to work with, not all of the team can be nice but the majority are nice, the company isnt the best to work for at all"
Bartender (Former Employee) says"I was a friend of the owner years ago and volunteered to help fill in some shifts when this bar was still open but it had bad management and sold a few years ago."
Kitchen Assistant (Current Employee) says"All staff is shouted at when the General Managers are working, most staff are bullied and belittled by the GMs. Hours are shaved, so nobody ever gets paid correctly."
Graphic Designer-Entertainment Graphics (Former Employee) says"The Burbank production office was a cool place to work, but I had to relinquish all my art rights to work there. Anyone who considers this workplace should read the fine print on their agreement. The pay was low and expectations high. I felt like the screen door hit me on the way out.cool officeterrible boss"
House person (Current Employee) says"very slow days not enough supplies barley any hours not the best place to work.they say everyone can only have full time but will only give 2 days a weekno hours"
Production Coordinator (Former Employee) says"I was an employee here a few years back. The studio in Burbank is VERY cliquey. Very much like high school unfortunately. No matter how hard you worked, if you weren't in really tight with the "popular kids" you almost had no chance for advancement. There are a few back stabbers that only care to further their careers by burning others. The work load is HUGE, which is fine IF they compensated accordingly, but they don't. Two years after starting, I was only making $20 more than my start pay. I still have friends that work there and they have told me just how unhappy they are there with recent changes that company has made to benefits and compensation. I will never look for employment here again.free water and soda. the annual halloween festivitieslow pay, high work. lack of respect and consideration for employees."
Supervisor (Former Employee) says"As in any retail job you have long hours to be able to make ends meet leaving you with little time for a social life. My rating reflects on the fact that due to the brand name it ends up being more stressful than it is worth."
Team Member (Former Employee) says"just a standard bar job you kow what you are goig to get last minute calls to cover shifts ad asked to work longer wwhen its busy easy transport links"
Programme Manager (Current Employee) says"based in camden, good work hours. company seems a little stuck in their ways and disorganised. poor annual leave allowance. lack of atmosphere in officelocation"
Various Roles (Former Employee) says"Some amazing talent. Some text book behaviour rather than genuine connections, and EQ-lacking people drive down the pleasure. Sadly not enough women supporting each other."
event marketing (Former Employee) says"i spent the majority of my professional career thus far with Viacom and continue to value everything i learned along the way and the incredible relationships built over the years. i learned a great deal from many of my peers and through trial and error. in less than 10 years of my time spent with the company, my team went through restructuring & change in upper management 5 times. it was hard to feel valued and secure in the job with the never-ending change. no regrets, very appreciative, my experience was at it's peak from day one and the vibe of the company started to go downhill from thereteam, travel, talentupper management, corporate morale, not feeling valued, executives who lose sight of what their role is as a leader and mentor"
Associate Producer (Current Employee) says"Hi-stress job with no reward or sense of career progression. Management is slow and contains many layers. This job offers little by way of creativity and doesn't reward creative thought. May be a good place to start, but because there's a long waiting line in promotions, it's best to leave as soon as you can."
Associate Producer (Current Employee) says"I have been a permalancer for three years with the same group. My boss has never fought for me to become staff despite years of hard work, which is why I don't share a favorable view of the management or compensation/benefits realm. Overall it's a great place, but like anywhere if you get stuck with a less than favorable manager who won't advocate for you, it does not bode well."
Event Marketing Assistant (Current Employee) says"Although the overall company is a great place to work, your experience really depends on what department you work for and who your direct supervisor is. Most people would think this is a fun work environment and most days it is. However, office politics plays a huge role in career advancement.on-site employee cafeteria, constant celebrity sightings, and one of a kind experiencesoffice politics"
Digital Programming Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Not enough career advancement or job security for freelancers. Could work from home, but poor benefits for freelancers. Interesting opportunities to work on iconic brands, but poor management."
Client Service Representative, Ad Sales (Former Employee) says"I worked there right out of college. It was a great place to get started, but since I didn't see myself as a Sales person long term, I probably didn't have the right mindset to really thrive and enjoy my time there like I could have.occasional free food, good benefitscan be really long hours when you're at the bottom, and very tough to move up"
Project Manager (Current Employee) says"Mid level employees often get stuck with no room for advancement due to many executive level employees. The company is constantly going through change and employees are typically the last to know information."
Head Chef (Former Employee) says"busy environment dealing with orders dealing with complants looking after staff dealing with stock making sure food is in date making sure food is cookedstaff discountlong hours"
WRITER (Former Employee) says"This was a new kind of writing job for me, one that changed the way I saw the industry and its competition. Nickleodeon puts a lot of work into the big picture and a "multi-splatform" approach to linear television and video-on-demand."
Photo Retoucher (Current Employee) says"This review was previously written and there seems to be a glitch as this is coming up again for a review. Not sure what else to say, but the system is asking for more and more of a review."
Minus a hundred + stars says"All Lives Matter, not just black ones. Shame on Nickelodeon for shoving this bullshit down kids throats. My granddaughter will watch a different channel. Nickelodeon is racist!! "
Bart Mattingly says"Things were great till they wanted to play politics with that racist blm crap! Great to me blm don’t matter! All lives matter! Go Suck yourselves!"
DK 95 says"Racist AF. No more BLM or gay pride commercials"
Linda Benavidez says"Shame on you Nickelodeon! Tired of hearing that Black Lives Matter! So when my child watches Nickelodeon his life doesn’t matter because he’s not black! That needs to be changed that All lives matter!! Everyone deserves equality not just Black people!!"
Ryan Dudley says"You did not have to put on a commercial for lgbtq on any other channel whatever but to throw that in kids faces that don’t understand shame on you. My child/ future children will not watch your channel."
