You make the best out of your opportunity

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

I worked at MTV Networks as an intern

ProsExperience and cool company. Every day can be different. Only those who are persistent will thrive.

ConsDead-ends. Long hours at times. There's not a lot of cons at working at such a prestige company.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work hard and you'll go far

Really positive experience, with opportunities to make meaningful contributions on a variety of projects

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

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

ProsThere are many pros to interning with MTV Networks. Not only does it look great on a resume (who hasn't heard of MTV?), but it's also a great place to be if you're looking to gain meaningful real world experience. I was never asked to get anyone's coffee and only a few times was I asked to make copies.

ConsThe only real con I can think of is that it's in the middle of time square. Some may perceive this as a pro, but if you don't want to bump elbows with tons of tourists on your commute, then I would say it's a bit of a downside.

Good Internship

Series Development Intern (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA (US)

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

ProsVery prestigous name on your resume. The connections you make are valuable and easy to stay in touch and network. The people are really kind, for the most part, sometimes snooty. Really casual, laid back atmosphere. Senior management is really awesome!

ConsYou don't get to sit in on any meetings or do anything exciting. You restock the fridge and get bagels and food from the food trucks for people. A lot of assistants cry and secretly dislike each other. BUT you'll survive.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to involve the interns more. Burning disks and getting food is fun, but so is learning.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

Intern (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA (US)

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

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

ConsAs an intern was not given many opportunities to gain a lot of hands on experience. Did a lot of office work.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget that the interns are there to learn.
