    Pros

    Cool working environment. Lots of young people, and all the floors have different designs. I interned with the production management department, so there were lots of cool shoots to go on-- movie premieres, American Idol events, etc.

    Cons

    There are so many interns, that employees don't really know what to do with them. Most days I just sat at my desk and was bored. MTV tries to create a feeling like they were going to help outstanding interns get a job, but that is just not true. Most employees in production management stay there forever, and an openings go to friends or family.

    Advice to Management

    Your internship program is too big. Make it more exclusive so the interns actually get a great experience rather than being the errand boy for everyone, including the PAs... who should be the errand boys.

    Pros

    Great people; great culture. You're constantly working with very vibrant go-getter people. This pushes you to really work hard and excel.

    Cons

    Parking is impossible for visitors or etc. Security is insane. I've gotten locked out of my building so many times during the internship, it wasn't even funny.

    Advice to Management

    Better integrate interns together

  6. Pretty boring unless you're a full time employee

    Pros

    Very personable co-workers. Every one is very friendly making the work environment welcoming. Promotions often come from within the company opposed to hiring from an outside source making it easy to move up in the ranks.

    Cons

    Some lack he competence to do complete projects without supervision. Job can get repetitive at times in office and traveling is a must. This can b nice at times but having to fly to LA once a month can get boring.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to hire on a trial period before long term commitment.
