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 for 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.

Disapproves of CEO

    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.
