Current Intern - Junior Financial Analyst in New York, NY
Current Intern - Junior Financial Analyst in New York, NY

I have been working at MTV Networks as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

It was an extremely fun environment (most departments). The financial department is what it is. Nothing exciting there.. even at MTV. But every floor has a different personality. Love that aspect. Most of the people, whether freelancers or employees were very friendly, and laid back. The dress code was also very relaxed.

In the summers, they allow employees a bit of flex time on Fridays. (not sure, but I'm sure they still continue this policy)

Cons

They aren't so eager to hire full time employees. The salaries aren't the most competitive, but that comes with the territory in media and communications, I assume. What you don't get in pay does make up in salary though depending on what department you work in, and the connections you have. While some are friendly, some aspects are just cold and it was better to email everything than to talk. But if that's your cup of tea, not much of a con, eh?

    I worked at MTV Networks as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Did my Fall internship here.. Great people, friendly, helpful and encourage meeting with other departments, learning new things and be creative. They take a lot of College interns every term and your work will be based on your school level.. grad or undergrad.

    Cons

    There is anything to not like about this place. The only thing would be.. to increase the number of paid internships they offer during the summer time. Otherwise none.
