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 (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company culture is very welcoming. Great benefits and managers. Great place to learn and grow in the sales world. You will learn how to work with all kinds of personalities and to be great at multitasking.

    Cons

    Entry level is very much executive assistant work AND media work in the Sales department. In some cases be ready to do two jobs. Entry level pay is low compared to the rest of the marketplace and opportunity to be promoted within is limited but very possible (regional office).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in growing talent - promote within when someone is worth keeping :)
