    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.

    Pros

    MTV Networks has a great culture. Everyone who is there wants to go to work every day. They make your experience extremely enjoyable.

    Cons

    The organization is so large that it is merely impossible to get a taste of it all. Also, the candidate application process can be more effective shortened.

    Advice to Management

    I think that MTV Networks is doing well. It is a great place to work! One area for improvement would be to look more into the recruitment process and to make it more efficient.

    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.

  6. Good learning experience

    Pros

    Creative hip atmosphere, lots of young people, possibility of running into celebrities and getting the first look into new media content, chances to participate in projects

    Cons

    High turn-over rate, job security is somewhat unstable, hard to get hired full-time (usually easier to get hired for free-lance projects)

    Advice to Management

    More stability and regiments, otherwise good job on work and life balance, diversity inclusion, and training programs (very large internship program)

  7. Not as great as it seems. Don't be blinded by the name!

    Pros

    As a designer, fun projects.

    Cons

    No sense of company culture ro community, and no appreciation for its employees. You are a cog in the machine, alongside thousands of employees working to add "MTV" to their resume. Little appreciation ro recognition; you are a nobody. It is inexcusable for internships to be unpaid, at such a massive company.

  8. A internship to have in college

    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.
