    I worked at MTV Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Young, high energy, tremendously creative. The business units still hold onto their individual personalities and vibe - great places to grow and learn. Global organization

    Cons

    High stress in the administrative roles - all about cutting heads and costs. Political environment if you are in the corporate environment - all about being a former Pepsi or Y&R guy. If you're not in a Channel group - run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The size of the bonuses at the executive level would keep a few people employed for years

    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.
