    Pros

    I was an intern, but this is what I observed:

    -Laid back environment
    -Casual attire
    -Looks great on a resume
    -Nice people for the most part

    Cons

    -MTV is huge so you feel like a number
    -WAY too much a$$ kissing (not my style)
    -Located in an annoying spot (Times Square)
    -Does not guarantee you a job when you finish your internship

    Advice to Management

    -Listen more to ideas of the people working under you
    -Become more in touch with the company's younger targeted audience

    Pros

    Great work life balance
    Great perks
    Access to events and episodes before public

    Not noticed easily
    Unpaid
    Some of the staff very cold and unbothered

    Advice to Management

    Give your interns more guidance with their career paths, be more honest about how competitive it is to get a job there.

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing if you are put in the right area. Unless you are high level, dress code is very casual. As an intern, MTV really tries to immerse the student and gives them projects. Interns are supposed to help the company, not just get coffee. This makes for an awesome experience working in Times Square. The company also has different events that network interns and current employees.

    Cons

    No pay, they only give credit. This was hard for me because I had to commute everyday and I lost a lot of money on transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Teach interns the politics of the system and make sure they receive all of the e-mails about intern events.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work hard and you'll go far

    Pros

    It's Viacom. You get to see really cool things happening almost all the time, like live awards shows throughout the building. Paid. Cafeteria food is really good. Everyone is really friendly and the culture is really laid-back.

    Cons

    Can't think of many, really. The commute is a little annoying if you're not already in the city. Sometimes there just wasn't enough work for me to do.

    Pros

    Felt like I was an operable part of my department, never a dull day. Respected and thanked for every effort.

    Cons

    Literally none. Amazing learning opportunity with the right department and a great chance to glean the inner workings of such a commendable network.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and the legacy will speak for itself!

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

  11. Internship in Standards and Practices

    Pros

    Very good options for moving up in company after internship ends. Progressive company and fun.

    Cons

    A lot of big egos.
