Very visible company, low internal promotion/mobility

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at MTV Networks

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.

    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


  2. Do your time, get a better job

    Pros

    Decent money and good work experience. Work there long enough then go get a good job somewhere else. Summer Fridays are nice.

    Cons

    It is all about CYA and passing the buck. So many lame policies and rules. Can't get anything done due to middle management.
