Pros

The name 'MTV' carries weight. Great group of people to work with, sometimes you get to be a part of some great projects.

Cons

Small departments that are key to the success of the brand aren't treated as such. Unless you know the right people it takes too long to 'climb the corporate ladder.' Your voice is rarely heard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the young people in the company, they're the ones that hold the key to success. Try and promote from within.

    Former Employee - Business Development  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Business Development in New York, NY

    Pros

    A lot of ability to be creative and work on relevant projects. Everyone that works there is extremely friendly and enjoy what they do. Definitely a specific type of culture (jeans, t-shirts, out there personalities), however, if this is what you are looking for it will be a great place to work.

    Cons

    No one is going to push you. A lot of complacency and work went unnoticed by many executives. As an intern, no pay and working in NYC is tough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more responsibility to interns and pay attention to what they do. This would make interns feel more welcomed and as if they are valued to some degree.

    The first year of my employment at their San Francisco office was the best working experience I've ever had

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    Great people, I mean, really great. Talented and very pleasant to work with. They are the best perks
    Unparalleled benefits: matching 401k, end of year bonus, discount on countless partner companies
    Unbelievable work/life balance policies
    Being part of Viacom is a big deal
    Plenty of room to grow in terms of career

    Cons

    There is only one: huge corporation demands a lot, especially when it comes to the bottom line. The SF office was making money but it was not enough to justify its presence. The profit was nothing compared to the rest of Viacom holdings.. So they are closing that office down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    San Francisco office could have been great...
