    Good internship experience

    Creative Intern (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very good experience but it's not what it used to be anymore

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Miami Beach, FL

    Pros-Good company to have on your resume
    -Great benefits (medical, vacation, bonus)
    -Chance to work with very talented and creative employees.

    Cons-Salaries scales should be revised (upper level mgmt salaries are just too hight compared to lower rank employees)
    -Limited growth within the company

    Advice to Senior Management-Upper Management should listen more to concerns from all employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Poor Management and Limited Resources

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsDiligent 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 Senior ManagementThere 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good training ground, not up to par from the management style perspective

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYouthful atmosphere, social environment, exposure to novel issues.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great experience for the next job.

    Finance Manager (Current Employee)
    Buenos Aires (Argentina)

    ProsIt´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.

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

    Advice to Senior Management100% rotation of headcount in less than 3 years.

    MTVNLA is an engaging workplace with a myriad of opportunities for growth and experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFun 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementI 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.

    Great for the working experience, but not meant to invest more than 2 or 3 years

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat work/ balance deal
    flexibility with personal or immediate vacation time
    informal working setting
    great location, which is great when the office gets too stuffy

    Conslack of growth
    lack of clear communication from senior management
    no acknowledgment or recognition for people who are managers and below; not clearly understood why

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

    Great teams but Management Sucks!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible hours
     A lot of young, talented people in lower ranks.
    Pay is OK.

    ConsMTV has lost its creative fuel... High rank VPs, SVPs and EVPs know nothing about the creative side of the business and are unable to make sound choices.
    Higher ranks are arrogant and despotic with fellow employees.
