A fun place to work but eventually it gets old.

I have been working at MTV Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere, great coworkers, working on fun content. I've spent most of my time at MTVN at smaller networks owned by Viacom and the pros of working here specifically are that you get the best of both worlds: resources of a large media company, but the experiences and opportunities of a small company.

Cons

Often times, unqualified people get promoted. And once people get to executive level, they never leave. People who should be getting rewarded for their hard work often spend years doing the work of positions above them before being compensated for it. It just always seemed like there was a small group of people who would get promoted every year and everyone else just hung around.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out your employees' strengths and weaknesses and empower them to contribute in a meaningful way. Reward hard work and creative abilities.

    Pros

    Super nice people. Everyone is very friendly, and wants you to learn about the industry.

    Cons

    Have to ask for work a lot.
    Work isn't always important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a plan or schedule for the interns instead of relying on employees to throw work on the interns

    I worked at MTV Networks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A strong name that carried those looking to make moves in the industry to higher pay and titles elsewhere. The laid-back culture on the business side of the company (vs creative) has turned more corporate in recent years, but it's still a young, smart and creative workplace.

    Cons

    Politics were rampant, work-life balance suffered from time to time and pay left much to be desired even after a few years actively contributing to the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More merit based promotion and L&D would help
