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

Pros

- Flexibility
- Great benefits
- Free to drive innovation
- Amazing work/life balance

Cons

- Its a big corporation so getting traction for projects can be hard. Loads of diplomacy and politicking needs to happen. You have to drive it because nobody else will
- Every two years they shake the snow globe and make arbitrary cuts and restructuring
- Senior management Goldfish syndrome (30 second memory inside a glass bowl)

    I worked at MTV Networks as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I was an intern, but this is what I observed:

    -Laid back environment
    -Casual attire
    -Looks great on a resume
    -Nice people for the most part

    Cons

    -MTV is huge so you feel like a number
    -WAY too much a$$ kissing (not my style)
    -Located in an annoying spot (Times Square)
    -Does not guarantee you a job when you finish your internship

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Listen more to ideas of the people working under you
    -Become more in touch with the company's younger targeted audience
