Pros

Great place if you really need a job, but i'd just stay for the HS tie in.

Cons

Lots of pushy people, favortism is everywhere and you have to do something almost criminal to get a raise. If i were a manager things my be a bit easier

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employess and learn to take what they say seriously. Read feedback comments listed in the break areas and no more free lunches.

    Pros

    At least it is new media, and you will work your butt off. They are willing to try almost anything to make a buck.

    Cons

    That said they wont but up the resources to make many good ideas really work, senior management terrified of Redstone, and the only real concern is what to do about the stock price. Compensation is terrible, benefits not too good either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run when you can, it seems the Redstone family drama will never end, and when the old man dies all heck will break loose I suspect.

    Pros

    Fringe benefits like parties, events. You really feel the MTV culture when you go to one of their parties. They really meet up to the expectation of what an MTV party would be like. It's also a very laid-back place to work, casual dress.

    Cons

    Beginning pay is low; promotions take months to go through. The bureacracy is annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you promote someone, promote their pay as well immediately, not 6 months later.

    No opinion of CEO
