I worked at MTV Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Cool company vision, central location in NYC, varied creative departments and channels within network, occasional celebrity sightings in office

Cons

Unpaid internship, unstructured intern training/events, too many students to accommodate for (500 interns/semester), lack of day to day work, difficult to get full time hire after internship

Advice to Management

Take the time to mentor interns rather than just give them leftover managerial work to do

Other Employee Reviews for MTV Networks

  1. Very visible company, low internal promotion/mobility

    Pros

    It's a great resume builder and there are a ton of interesting projects. The benefits are awesome (fitness classes, great cafeteria, time off, etc).

    Cons

    They seem to favor hiring outside vs. within the company. A bit of grass is always greener syndrome. They've created a program to combat this, but many wonder if it's just for show. Hence, people leave and get promoted outside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Look to your current employees for promotions! Or at least pay your employees a proper promotion salary. That's why people leave.

    I worked at MTV Networks full-time (More than a 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.
