    Pros

    You are included in all meetings and get to interact will all levels of management. Great work culture! Not a typical uptight suit and tie corporation. Many employees, including top executives were very easy to talk to.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to mention.

    I worked at MTV Networks as an intern

    Pros

    As a designer, fun projects.

    Cons

    No sense of company culture ro community, and no appreciation for its employees. You are a cog in the machine, alongside thousands of employees working to add "MTV" to their resume. Little appreciation ro recognition; you are a nobody. It is inexcusable for internships to be unpaid, at such a massive company.

    Pros

    Fun, hip and modern work place with a young demographic. Dress is casual and people seem interested in meeting others. Easy to be hired as an intern.

    Cons

    Little mobility within the company and limited benefits turn me off from this company. The atmosphere, while fun, can seem a bit unprofessional at times.

    Pros

    Super nice people. Everyone is very friendly, and wants you to learn about the industry.

    Cons

    Have to ask for work a lot.
    Work isn't always important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a plan or schedule for the interns instead of relying on employees to throw work on the interns

    I worked at MTV Networks as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun, 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.

    Cons

    Easy 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make interns feel valued and a useful part of the team.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget that the interns are there to learn.

    Pros

    It is a great place for people to work if they are young and interested in the entertainment industry.

    Cons

    The company lacks mobility within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think most of the leadership at MTV is great and you guys should try to work harder to promote within.
