    I worked at VH1 full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at VH1 as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern, I was able to find a group of professionals within my department who wanted to push me and challenge my abilities. It's refreshing to encounter people who actually care about your professional growth. Not many companies do this.

    Cons

    Perhaps more interaction within the other departments could have been useful.

    Experience Working as a Finance Intern

    Former Employee - Finance Intern in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Finance Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at VH1 as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company offers great opportunities to learn about the procedures and different aspects related to the financing side of production that provide the knowledge and skills a student would need to develop in order to be competitive once entering the workforce.
    Supervisors are always open to give their interns the possibility to take initiative in the work they are given, as well as autonomy and flexibility when it comes to the time frame in which their projects are due.
    The atmosphere in the office is relaxed and friendly, and everyone will encourage the intern to talk to people in other departments to either offer their help when they are not too busy, or to simply learn more about other aspects of the business.
    All in all, a great place to develop one's skills and knowledge, as well as to build connections.

    Cons

    As the company is fairly large, it is more departmentalized and some tasks may be more repetitive than in other smaller companies where one may have more exposure to different aspects of the business. However, if the intern shows interest in learning new things, they have the possibility to talk to their manager and to be assigned additional or new tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps keep the intern more busy and give them a chance to touch on more aspects of the business with more diversified tasks.
