    I worked at Mtv Network Latin America as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Program was flexible and interns were treated with respect and heard. I enjoyed free Adobe Creative Suite classes and learned a lot about creative production.

    Cons

    I was hoping the internship program would have a rotational type of curriculum rather than staying in the same department the whole time.

    Poor Management and Limited Resources

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Mtv Network Latin America

    Pros

    The fun environment is both stimulating and inviting but runs a fine line of becoming unproductive. The office feel young and lively and often hosts social events to reward employees for their hard work. Very much a 'family' environment.

    Cons

    Diligent and competent employees do not stick around for long - either because they are among the many 'temps' or because they are staff who gets tired of the unprofessionalism. This company offers little room for growth and compensation is inadequate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be a surplus of staff in some departments and a deficiency in others. Consider reallocating "heads" to better suit the needs of revenue generating departments.

    Pros

    Youthful atmosphere, social environment, exposure to novel issues.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical and antiquated management style. Lack of efficiency and good organizational design, including lack of systems and open communication. Highly questionable promotion practices. Unclear sense of direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find employees who have working knowledge and language skills for territory. Address lack of process and turnover ratios in certain areas.

    It´s Viacom....you learn how to work in a big US corporation. Great and cool people to work with. (some are quiet weird but fun to work with!).
    Great company for a 3 year project.

    Human resource department. 100% rotation of headcount in less than 3 years.

    I have been working at Mtv Network Latin America

    Pros

    Fun and energetic, young atmosphere with a serious attitude towards work.
    Constant opportunities to learn about new trends, markets, and creative productions.
    In-market productions with pan regional (all of Latin America) approach to strategies.

    Cons

    Compensation is not up to par with similar positions at other networks.
    Working under pressure with limited resources and understaffed departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe it would be a wise investment to get a strategic analyst to consider the current structure of the company and evaluate where resources are needed to support the growing objectives of the Ad Sales teams and the implications these have on the rest of the company in terms of work load and resources.

    Note that managers and below are working just as hard and would like to be invested in the company as well.
