    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

    Former Employee - MTV Productions  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - MTV Productions in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed learning about the various ways I would get involved in productions. I didn't feel trained per se but I was shown a lot like production management and all things involved with being a PA.

    Cons

    It is a huge corporation so I felt like the work I did didn't really matter. I was an unpaid intern and I was treated well but there was just too many people. I don't like the huge office feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe interns should get paid atleast something, because I know I gained a lot of experience but MTV was a resume builder more than anything else.
