Great place to start your career in production, but leave before it beats you down too much.

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

Pros

Young workforce, a good place to start your career, good benefits, flexible in terms of responsibility.

Cons

Promotes "jack of all trades, master of none" work philosophy. Squelches new ideas. Not interested in creative solutions or ideas. Happy to churn out lowest quality work for the biggest buck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a few risks, it's what put MTV on the map in the first place.

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

    Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing if you are put in the right area. Unless you are high level, dress code is very casual. As an intern, MTV really tries to immerse the student and gives them projects. Interns are supposed to help the company, not just get coffee. This makes for an awesome experience working in Times Square. The company also has different events that network interns and current employees.

    Cons

    No pay, they only give credit. This was hard for me because I had to commute everyday and I lost a lot of money on transportation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach interns the politics of the system and make sure they receive all of the e-mails about intern events.
