I worked at MTV Networks as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Fun, young, energetic staff with a lot of good ideas. They don't take themselves too seriously, but do take their work very seriously. The work I did was not very "intern-y", and I was given responsibilities and trust in my capabilities.

Cons

Easy to blend in because the company is so large, and you will be forgotten if you do not network and make sure people remember you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to make interns feel valued and a useful part of the team.

    I worked at MTV Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hip, trendy & energenic environment !

    Cons

    Not alot of opportunity for advancement. I actually witnessed a temp who was underqualified for a job and delivered very poor quality of work, get hired to a full-time position with salary and benefits. This promotes bad morale for the employees who exceed in their job but don't advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote experienced & qualified employees from within instead of outsourcing.

    I worked at MTV Networks as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Super fun, Lots of extra team building type interaction that made it a great place to be social with colleagues. The work was cool and innovative and it was a real joy to come to work every day!

    Cons

    If you were a permanent freelancer the difference was tough. When all the regular people go on vacation you don't get paid. When there were holiday parties you may or may not be invited. You also miss out on great perks that would be good for the company like the education budget.

    And since you could potentially work for years without becoming full hire after a while as a freelancer you move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are probably a lot of good reasons why you have permanent freelancers but if you do that with good people they will eventually leave and that costs the company money in the long run.
