    Pros

    Benefits, I like the team I work with, great volunteer programs, great creative team

    Cons

    I'm less interested in working on reality television, I feel like my particular supervisors aren't as encouraging in growth as some other places I've worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your staff to want more and demand their growth.

    Pros

    On a day to day level and in the short-term, you may be fortunate to work with talented people. Unfortunately this will only be good for a few years if you're a woman. There is no future if you are female.

    Cons

    The female executives at VH1, in particular the ones sitting in New York, not only take no interest in elevating female talent at the network but actively pass over them in favor of males. Betty Friedan and Sheryl Sandberg would be humiliated if they saw what goes on here. It is truly embarrassing and a very sad statement on the qualifications of these individuals and on gender equality generally.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people like the ones mentioned immediately. They make your network far worse - they have no vision for creative, talent, potential, etc. They actively ruin or ignore female bench strength for the future of what could be a very great network.

    The president should stop turning a blind eye to the senior managements inadequacies that are destroying morale for employees.

    Pros

    I loved everyone I worked with, very passionate about the job and eager to get things done. Long hours, but I looked forward to going to work.

    Cons

    No room to grow. They would also try to fire people behind your back, like you wouldn't notice.

    Advice to Management

    They should be more upfront with their employees.

    Pros

    Benefits include lots of access to talent and working with talented individuals. Good entry-level experience.

    Cons

    Pay was based on 60/hr week...a little tough to work for longer than a contractual agreement. Production Management would constantly under bid to "grunt" positions while seemingly having no issue pushing bonus pay for creative.

    Advice to Management

    Consider personal advancement of your talented individuals instead of retraining new hires every few months.
