I worked at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great brand name and a leader in the entertainment vertical. Advertisers who found their audience within the MTVN family of brands would invest.

Cons

Large company, challenge to move upward quickly as there aren't many open opportunities available. Sometimes the individual brand teams do not integrate or communicate posing a challenge for company movement between different teams and visibility on open opportunities.

    Pros

    You'll work with the best in the business, gain valuable experience, learn how to manage others, and work in a hands-on, always-on-the-go environment. The Lodge is pretty rad, too. Dress code: No one cares. Wear whatever you want.

    Cons

    MTV is adverse to hiring staff employees; everyone is contract or full-time/freelance, which, unfortunately, comes with few benefits. They also don't really value a work-life balance. VERY fast-paced environment -- no slow days. Can be exhausting. Can also be a cliquey place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees. Many of them work like dogs and don't even have health insurance.

    I have been working at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of good people work here. You'll gain a lot of experience; even if you're under qualified. ..trial by fire (which can also be a con)

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch with everyone below them.
    Not very easy to advance up the ranks

    Advice to Management

    You like to foster good talent, but you need to learn to retain these assets
