    Pros

    MTV is a great place to work. Some perks include a casual dress code, an excellent benefits package, fun work environment, and generous paid time off.

    Cons

    Located in Times Square New York; Cafeteria food is not very good; company has a tendency to low-ball employee compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees should receive the minimum base salary based on the market average for that title.

    I have been working at MTV Networks

    Pros

    No one cares if you show up late, because all the producers are late too.
    Work included getting coffee, which is easy!

    Cons

    You can't really give your creative advice because the egotistical producers are too stupid to acknowledge that the interns are smarter than they are.

    Pros

    Friendly people, good work environment, work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very corporate, department for everything, at times there is no training or guidelines for a project/task.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the talent you have within the company - people will surprise you if you invest in them.

    Pros

    Very very creative environment, very friendly, supportive staff.

    Cons

    Currently very very male-dominated and -oriented senior leadership team. Almost no women in power whatsoever -- very depressing. Too much overpaid senior management (far too many lame ducks abusing spending accounts while more junior staff can hard get an extra $50), WAY too much middle management/ VP bloat, too much emphasis on the buzzwords and Techcrunch outlook of the day and not a longterm strategy. Too many kids in roles they're way too junior for. Endless red tape. Very little overall focus. Goals and priorities aren't articulated, half the time you don't even know which team you're officially working on. (Not kidding). Successes of teams and wholes aren't celebrated -- only the same few individuals are celebrated.

    I have been working at MTV Networks as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are awesome and make the work experience enjoyable. Upper management is very supportive in helping you grow and develop in the field. The culture here is also what you would expect of MTV--very chill and friendly.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better.

    Very visible company, low internal promotion/mobility

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at MTV Networks

    Pros

    It's a great resume builder and there are a ton of interesting projects. The benefits are awesome (fitness classes, great cafeteria, time off, etc).

    Cons

    They seem to favor hiring outside vs. within the company. A bit of grass is always greener syndrome. They've created a program to combat this, but many wonder if it's just for show. Hence, people leave and get promoted outside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to your current employees for promotions! Or at least pay your employees a proper promotion salary. That's why people leave.

    Pros

    Decent money and good work experience. Work there long enough then go get a good job somewhere else. Summer Fridays are nice.

    Cons

    It is all about CYA and passing the buck. So many lame policies and rules. Can't get anything done due to middle management.
