I have been working at MTV Networks full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at MTV Networks as a contractor for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    For the a business-focused role, not a bad place to work as long as you keep in mind that "Content is King"
