    I worked at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on well-known brands and hit properties. Big advertising reach.

    Cons

    Office politics, perpetual forecasting and re-organizing. Slow, unfocused and under-prioritized digital strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to retain best talent, this gets overlooked.

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

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing if you are put in the right area. Unless you are high level, dress code is very casual. As an intern, MTV really tries to immerse the student and gives them projects. Interns are supposed to help the company, not just get coffee. This makes for an awesome experience working in Times Square. The company also has different events that network interns and current employees.

    Cons

    No pay, they only give credit. This was hard for me because I had to commute everyday and I lost a lot of money on transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Teach interns the politics of the system and make sure they receive all of the e-mails about intern events.
