    I have been working at MTV Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice coworkers if they are all on the same rung on the corporate ladder. Good benefits package. Lots of time off.

    Cons

    Nepotism all over. No upward mobility. Management doesn't listen and/or care. Salary is way below going rate for most positions. Constant fear of being laid off. Good workers aren't rewarded, instead they are given more responsibilities with no increase in salary. Same goes for people that get laid off. Instead of being replaced, they distribute the work amongst those who are left. No career path assistance. Constantly told there are no positions available. Company makes multi-million dollar cuts and yet the CEO gets a 19% salary increase.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to employee input and willing to give direction.
