I have been working at MTV Networks as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Fun, hip and modern work place with a young demographic. Dress is casual and people seem interested in meeting others. Easy to be hired as an intern.

Cons

Little mobility within the company and limited benefits turn me off from this company. The atmosphere, while fun, can seem a bit unprofessional at times.

    A fun place to work but eventually it gets old.

    I have been working at MTV Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, great coworkers, working on fun content. I've spent most of my time at MTVN at smaller networks owned by Viacom and the pros of working here specifically are that you get the best of both worlds: resources of a large media company, but the experiences and opportunities of a small company.

    Cons

    Often times, unqualified people get promoted. And once people get to executive level, they never leave. People who should be getting rewarded for their hard work often spend years doing the work of positions above them before being compensated for it. It just always seemed like there was a small group of people who would get promoted every year and everyone else just hung around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out your employees' strengths and weaknesses and empower them to contribute in a meaningful way. Reward hard work and creative abilities.

    Not as great as it seems. Don't be blinded by the name!

    I worked at MTV Networks as an intern

    Pros

    As a designer, fun projects.

    Cons

    No sense of company culture ro community, and no appreciation for its employees. You are a cog in the machine, alongside thousands of employees working to add "MTV" to their resume. Little appreciation ro recognition; you are a nobody. It is inexcusable for internships to be unpaid, at such a massive company.
