    MTV Networks - Atom.com is great!

    Intern (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsIts a relaxed work environment with a young, energetic and funny group of people working there. Everyone is very dedicated to their work and no one puts in any less than their full effort. There is good support within the company and a friendly relationship between departments.

    ConsI am the only intern on my floor. While I have a great working and friendly relationship with my co-workers, I have no social opportunities to meet other interns.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor their internship program, 1. allow interns to choose not to accept credit. (for legal purposes pay them $1, or something similar) This issue almost prevented me from working this summer, and 2. hold intern-only events so that we can network and keep in contact throughout the summer even if we are in different departments.

    I love and enjoy working for MTV but I just wish there was more room for mobility within the company.

    Intern (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

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

    ConsThe company lacks mobility within the company.

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

    Dream Internship

    Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsMtv was so cool. We got to wear whatever classyish casual outift we wanted to. Every few weeks we would be excused from our duties for an hour to listen to a band. Celebrities were constantly dropping by for meetings. And you're working for a cool, hip, young network that actually can influence a generation.

    ConsFor me the worst part was the Los Angeles Traffic- hello, 2 hour commute. But other than that as an intern you must obviously do all of the less than desired work load such as moving / packing boxes, organizing and mail duties--but none the less i loved the job

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs an intern my manager was one person, my supervisor, and he did a fantastic job. As for the rest of the management i feel i had no insight for feedback.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Generally nice coworkers but little mobility

    MTV Networks Intern (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsFun, 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
