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

    Pros

    - HR team made the interns feel welcomed
    - learning opportunities outside of your area of interest/internship responsibilities
    - talented staff
    - work/life balance seems good

    Cons

    - people are too busy to talk/teach you things
    - couldn't tell if people were actually happy to be working there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your interns as people who do your work for you, instead actually take the time to get to know them and mentor them. An internship is a two way street. It would be nice to compensate the interns too - unpaid internships are unjust in so many ways.

    Pros

    Quality of life, flex hours and embrace of all walks of life make this place worth considering. Did I mention Summer Fridays?

    Cons

    It's a great brand to work on, and they know it. Will work you to the bone, but those who can cut it will rise to the top. Salary may be a little lower than some competitors....

    Pros

    Summer fridays
    Big name brands
    Nice office
    Good location

    Cons

    Arrogant Management
    Constant layoffs
    Back stabbing co-workers - this is how you win at MTV
    Lots of people sitting around not doing anything in the 50k range who are not deserving of a job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the people who work hard and don't let former employee's make it hard for new people it serves no purpose.
    No matter how many team events you plan still no one acts as a team, why is that ?
    The managers at this place abuse power.
