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

Pros

The name recognition, people automatically know the name MTV and are impressed.

Cons

They work you hard for that measly day rate, 12 hours a day. And if you address the issue they say "Well you can leave because we have 20 people lined up at the door waiting to take your spot."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Normal hours and treating people with respect would do wonders.

    I worked at MTV Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I loved working here. Environment was creative, there were no limits set on what you could brainstorm and then activate on. The folks were nice and at the time, the team I worked with felt like a family. Pay was average and hours could be long - I traveled a lot also but there are a lot of perks that come working there so it balanced out. Favorite job by far.

    Cons

    So many people it sometimes is hard to meet others in company.

    I worked at MTV Networks full-time

    Pros

    Despite erosion over the years, the MTV brand remains strong. Great for resume. You get to work with some really creative and brilliant people.

    Cons

    You also get to work with people who manage to consistently fail upwards. Tension and discord are mistaken for creativity, sales pitches for ideas. Departments and the various MTVs are silo-d and are too busy competing with each other to compete with the real competition outside the company. Unless you're senior management, don't expect to have a life and a livable salary.
