I have been working at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, some great projects, lots of flexitime and cool events and some great experiences, pro-social initiatives. If you're starting out this is a great place to start your career. Having MTV on your resume does still open doors.

Cons

Budgets are tight but this does not apply to some Execs spending - who seem to spend their budgets like personal cash, whilst others are fighting for a few dollars. People in positions of seniority with a lack of management ability. A lack of visibility.

Advice to Management

Need to identify the real talent, as opposed to listening to those who take credit for other people's work and blow a lot of hot air. The company does not have the cache it once had, and this needs to be addressed before the market diminished further.

    I worked at Viacom Media Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work environment is fun and, while high pressure, very laid back.

    Cons

    As an intern was not given many opportunities to gain a lot of hands on experience. Did a lot of office work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that the interns are there to learn.

    I worked at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    on site cafeteria (convenience only, food is gross), overtime for some positions, ability to work with different people but they've all been there for years and years

    Cons

    times square location is a nightmare, no room for upward growth, no promotions, made to feel replaceable constantly

    Advice to Management

    MTV is not relevant anymore so stop acting like you can pay low salaries and not promote anyone. promote more and treat employees better.
