No opinion of CEO

I worked at MTV Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

•Decent Pay and Benefits. •Good relationships with customers and some camaraderie with coworkers •Reasonable work flow (not too many tickets and projects managed on a case by case basis) •Reasonable policies set in place to manage user behavior/workflow in enterprise environment

Cons

•Middle Management contentious with staff •immediate supervisor does not escalate problems, or "have your back" in customer satisfaction situations •Management unaware/unappreciative of individual worker skill sets: starting in 2009, many skilled IT workers were laid off, while many lackluster, or problem employees were retained; this one stymied me.

Advice to Management

Management should be aware of skills sets of their existing staff: especially when making changes, or lay offs. I don't think management knows who on their staff can do what. I would encourage some sort of reporting (peer endorsements or Vendor certification program) that will be held by management to rectify this problem, so qualified people remain on the job.

    It would be great to be able to work on audio mixes in-house.

    I have been working at MTV Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The standard perks of working with a global company with a good brand name for a resume are there for the taking. Good benefits, vacation time, and work life balance are all solid and can be slightly better than other media firms.

    Cons

    Politics run the organization. I have been promoted within the company but the key is having VPs vouch for your good work (even if they have never worked with you before). This is standard across all departments. Additionally the firm shows very little willingness to work towards their employees needs. Working from home is rarely an option and there is very little say in affairs until you reach a high level.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on the socialization, and focus more on employee development. For a company trying to reach a younger age group, it seems ironic that all of the individuals developing strategy are too nervous to lean on the younger staff.
