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

Pros

Fun work environment, great benefits, tuition reimbursement, access to industry events.

Cons

Extremely top-heavy organization where promotion from within is difficult. I've watched managers become VPs in 2 years, while others rot away with no promotions or proper raises. A lot of positions at the VP or higher level seem to be "invented" constantly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reassure junior employees that there is a commitment to promoting from within.
