    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.


  2. A internship to have in college

    As an intern, it's hard to tell.

    Pros

    Love the cafeteria, interesting people, interesting projects, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Was told I could get hands-on experience in the internship I never received, really bad desk set-up for an intern, never worked with or spoke to the person who was supposed to be my supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Allow interns more opportunity to move from department to department.

    Pros

    When there are things for the interns to do, it's great. You'll get to sit in on tapings and help coordinate shoots.

    Cons

    We worked during a very slow season. Our supervisors had nothing to do, we in turn had nothing to do.

    Advice to Management

    perhaps, the office atmosphere could be a bit more intern friendly.

    Pros

    - Looks great on a resume - Get to work for well known networks - People are friendly for the most part

    Cons

    MTV takes advantage of all the free labor they can get. It is super easy to get an intern position at MTVN, but once you graduate, forget about getting hired there. The useless "internship seminars" are just in place to make it seem like they are interested in watching you grow into a prospective MTV employee. It's all phony. Don't waste your time. Seek a better internship elsewhere where you actually have a chance of getting hired after graduation. I honestly think they post fake positions on the career site just to keep the HR recruiters busy. Ridiculous.

    Fun, but often neglected.

    - in NY - popular amongst the younger generation - looks good on resume - meet with tons of people

    take better care of your interns

    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

    I was an intern, but this is what I observed: -Laid back environment -Casual attire -Looks great on a resume -Nice people for the most part

    Cons

    -MTV is huge so you feel like a number -WAY too much a$$ kissing (not my style) -Located in an annoying spot (Times Square) -Does not guarantee you a job when you finish your internship

    Advice to Management

    -Listen more to ideas of the people working under you -Become more in touch with the company's younger targeted audience
