I have been working at MTV Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

A lot of good people work here. You'll gain a lot of experience; even if you're under qualified. ..trial by fire (which can also be a con)

Cons

Senior management is out of touch with everyone below them. Not very easy to advance up the ranks

Advice to Management

You like to foster good talent, but you need to learn to retain these assets

    I worked at MTV Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You'll work with the best in the business, gain valuable experience, learn how to manage others, and work in a hands-on, always-on-the-go environment. The Lodge is pretty rad, too. Dress code: No one cares. Wear whatever you want.

    Cons

    MTV is adverse to hiring staff employees; everyone is contract or full-time/freelance, which, unfortunately, comes with few benefits. They also don't really value a work-life balance. VERY fast-paced environment -- no slow days. Can be exhausting. Can also be a cliquey place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees. Many of them work like dogs and don't even have health insurance.

    I have been working at MTV Networks as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people on my team, all talented in their individual roles and respective duties.

    Cons

    A total lack of organization at the top level led to late night shoots dictated by talent's arrival and schedule.

    Advice to Management

    More collaboration and regular meetings would make life easier on the production team's end.
