I have been working at MTV Networks full-time

Pros

the dress code is super laid back so most people wear jeans or leggings every day. the work day is really flexible, lots of people don't come in until 10 or 11. my bosses are really fun and open so i never feel like i can't ask questions or talk to them about concerns.

Cons

it's in the middle of times square so you have to deal with packs of tourists. but really, that's the only downside. i love everything else about mtv.

    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.
