    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

    The Santa Monica office was a laid back atmosphere. Dress code is casual and every person I worked with and met were nice and helpful. If I didn't have a career change decision, I would have wanted to spend my entire career at MTV Networks.

    Cons

    Don't have any complaints except living in the valley the commute was rather far to Santa Monica every day.
