Great Internship at MTV.

Creative Music Integration Intern (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA (US)

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

ProsFun, 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.

ConsEasy 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 Senior ManagementContinue to make interns feel valued and a useful part of the team.

Surrounded by excellent people

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

ProsWork environment is fun and, while high pressure, very laid back.

A great opportunity to become familiar with the daily writing process.

Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at MTV Networks

ProsI was an intern with one of MTV's websites. They produce daily content which is really important experience for a communications student. Very demanding -- almost considered a staffer.

ConsTypical office drama...a lot of gossip. I wasn't really used to that, but I guess it comes with the territory. Sometimes staffers had to scramble to find things for interns to do.
