    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

    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.

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

    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

    Pros

    Working in pre-production, production, and post. Cool opportunities for going on shoots.

    Cons

    A bunch of downtime during the internship, but that's expected at an internship. They also inform you of this at intern orientation.

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, great location. It was a fantastic learning experience with the ability to extends your limits as much as you would like.

    Cons

    There was no pay for interns, at least in some departments. You must be able to get college credit to intern here.

    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.

    I don't have any cons to mention.
