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

Pros

I was an intern, but this is what I observed:

-Laid back environment
-Casual attire
-Looks great on a resume
-Nice people for the most part

Cons

-MTV is huge so you feel like a number
-WAY too much a$$ kissing (not my style)
-Located in an annoying spot (Times Square)
-Does not guarantee you a job when you finish your internship

Advice to Management

-Listen more to ideas of the people working under you
-Become more in touch with the company's younger targeted audience

    Former Intern - MTV Productions in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed learning about the various ways I would get involved in productions. I didn't feel trained per se but I was shown a lot like production management and all things involved with being a PA.

    Cons

    It is a huge corporation so I felt like the work I did didn't really matter. I was an unpaid intern and I was treated well but there was just too many people. I don't like the huge office feel.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe interns should get paid atleast something, because I know I gained a lot of experience but MTV was a resume builder more than anything else.
