    Pros

    While interning at MTV, I was able to gain a lot of experience in my department. The people were very nice. The lounge is nice but definitely nothing to call home about. The environment feels very diverse and welcoming. I was able to meet with my intern supervisor on a daily basis to ask questions and receive feedback on my performance. I met some great people at MTV. Best of all, this internship looks GREAT on a resume.

    Cons

    I wish interns had the opportunity to rotate to other departments to learn more and increase networking opportunities. I never really got the chance to meet other interns as the place is huge. I was often bored with nothing to do even after requesting work.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak as a paid employee, but as an intern, I would recommend increasing networking opportunities/events for interns.

    Pros

    Its a relaxed work environment with a young, energetic and funny group of people working there. Everyone is very dedicated to their work and no one puts in any less than their full effort. There is good support within the company and a friendly relationship between departments.

    Cons

    I am the only intern on my floor. While I have a great working and friendly relationship with my co-workers, I have no social opportunities to meet other interns.

    Advice to Management

    For their internship program, 1. allow interns to choose not to accept credit. (for legal purposes pay them $1, or something similar) This issue almost prevented me from working this summer, and 2. hold intern-only events so that we can network and keep in contact throughout the summer even if we are in different departments.

  5. Intern at MTV Networks

    Pros

    MTV Networks has a great culture. Everyone who is there wants to go to work every day. They make your experience extremely enjoyable.

    Cons

    The organization is so large that it is merely impossible to get a taste of it all. Also, the candidate application process can be more effective shortened.

    Advice to Management

    I think that MTV Networks is doing well. It is a great place to work! One area for improvement would be to look more into the recruitment process and to make it more efficient.

    Pros

    Love the cafeteria, interesting people, interesting projects, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Was told I could get hands-on experience in the internship I never received, really bad desk set-up for an intern, never worked with or spoke to the person who was supposed to be my supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Allow interns more opportunity to move from department to department.

    Pros

    Creative hip atmosphere, lots of young people, possibility of running into celebrities and getting the first look into new media content, chances to participate in projects

    Cons

    High turn-over rate, job security is somewhat unstable, hard to get hired full-time (usually easier to get hired for free-lance projects)

    Advice to Management

    More stability and regiments, otherwise good job on work and life balance, diversity inclusion, and training programs (very large internship program)


  8. Not as great as it seems. Don't be blinded by the name!

    I worked at MTV Networks as an intern

    Pros

    As a designer, fun projects.

    Cons

    No sense of company culture ro community, and no appreciation for its employees. You are a cog in the machine, alongside thousands of employees working to add "MTV" to their resume. Little appreciation ro recognition; you are a nobody. It is inexcusable for internships to be unpaid, at such a massive company.
