    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.


  2. Pretty boring unless you're a full time employee

    Pros

    Casual Dress Laid Back Environment A lot of job opportunities

    Cons

    No perks, promotions. Employees in my department didn't speak to the interns not enough legitimate work for interns.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take interns if you don't need them.

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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Mtv 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.

    Cons

    For 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 Management

    As 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.


  6. MTV Networks - Atom.com is great!

    Pros

    Its 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.

    Cons

    I 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 Management

    For 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.
