    Pros

    MTV has projects with the potential to take them to the next level
    A lot of talent people work a the network and if there voices were allowed to be heard they could make positive changes.

    Cons

    The "diversity" factor in the company is questionable.
    There are more corporate thinkers than creative employees.
    Salaries are low in comparison to other networks.
    Viacom does not always promote deserving employees as often as they should,

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to the employees who are forward thinking and can really take the company to the next level.

    Pros

    It affords you the opportunity to meet a lot of movers and shakers and valuable connections. I was able to build a network of professionals that helped make my job in marketing easier.

    Cons

    The pay isn't competitive. Because so many people are eying to work at MTV Networks they are able to pay pennies and hire quality professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff what they are worth and encourage a healthy work life balance. It seems that the expectation is for you to be devoted to your job 24/7 and frown upon it you resist.
