I have been working at Viacom Media Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Fun, hip and modern work place with a young demographic. Dress is casual and people seem interested in meeting others. Easy to be hired as an intern.

Cons

Little mobility within the company and limited benefits turn me off from this company. The atmosphere, while fun, can seem a bit unprofessional at times.

    I have been working at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, great coworkers, working on fun content. I've spent most of my time at MTVN at smaller networks owned by Viacom and the pros of working here specifically are that you get the best of both worlds: resources of a large media company, but the experiences and opportunities of a small company.

    Cons

    Often times, unqualified people get promoted. And once people get to executive level, they never leave. People who should be getting rewarded for their hard work often spend years doing the work of positions above them before being compensated for it. It just always seemed like there was a small group of people who would get promoted every year and everyone else just hung around.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out your employees' strengths and weaknesses and empower them to contribute in a meaningful way. Reward hard work and creative abilities.

    Pros

    Super nice people. Everyone is very friendly, and wants you to learn about the industry.

    Cons

    Have to ask for work a lot.
    Work isn't always important.

    Advice to Management

    Create a plan or schedule for the interns instead of relying on employees to throw work on the interns
