Pros

- Looks great on a resume
- Get to work for well known networks
- People are friendly for the most part

Cons

MTV takes advantage of all the free labor they can get. It is super easy to get an intern position at MTVN, but once you graduate, forget about getting hired there. The useless "internship seminars" are just in place to make it seem like they are interested in watching you grow into a prospective MTV employee. It's all phony. Don't waste your time. Seek a better internship elsewhere where you actually have a chance of getting hired after graduation. I honestly think they post fake positions on the career site just to keep the HR recruiters busy. Ridiculous.

    Pros

    MTV used to look good on your resume, but i think it's losing it's novelty in the industry

    Cons

    Very incompetent upper management. Art Director I worked for was a tyrant - a totally uninspiring leader and terrible communicator!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the creative people you have working for you, you're lucky to have them

    Pros

    There is some prestige in saying that you work at MTV Networks

    Cons

    At my network, there is little room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Information sharing is paramount. Take the time to solicit ideas/concerns/suggestions from employees (the ones who are actually doing the work, not the executives). You might learn some things.
