IT & Software Services Center
Sandy Springs, Georgia
On June 29, 2012, CBS announced plans to locate an IT and software services center in metro Atlanta.
"CBS Corporation is one of the most recognizable names in media and entertainment, so we are indeed glad to see the company put down more roots in Georgia, and create a significant amount of IT jobs," Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said. "This new location is a great illustration of how Georgia's diverse offerings of business assets and strategic resources can help companies across a range of industries compete right here in our state."
Backed by a business climate that ranks among the best in the nation, the metro Atlanta region remains a competitive location for high-tech business and IT operations. This region also annually lands at or the near the top of U.S. rankings for growth in highly educated people ages 25-34, which is a highly coveted demographic of talent for IT and high-tech operations such as the new CBS Corp. Sandy Springs center.
Headquartered in New York City, CBS Corporation is a mass media company that creates and distributes industry-leading content across a variety of platforms to audiences around the world. The company's operations span virtually every field of media and entertainment, including cable, publishing, radio, local TV, film, outdoor advertising, interactive and socially responsible media. CBS owns the most-watched television network in the U.S. and one of the world's largest libraries of entertainment content. CBS has several existing operations in Georgia.
