No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Cool company vision, central location in NYC, varied creative departments and channels within network, occasional celebrity sightings in office

Cons

Unpaid internship, unstructured intern training/events, too many students to accommodate for (500 interns/semester), lack of day to day work, difficult to get full time hire after internship

Advice to Management

Take the time to mentor interns rather than just give them leftover managerial work to do

    I have been working at Viacom Media Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent money and good work experience. Work there long enough then go get a good job somewhere else. Summer Fridays are nice.

    Cons

    It is all about CYA and passing the buck. So many lame policies and rules. Can't get anything done due to middle management.

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

    Pros

    The name recognition, people automatically know the name MTV and are impressed.

    Cons

    They work you hard for that measly day rate, 12 hours a day. And if you address the issue they say "Well you can leave because we have 20 people lined up at the door waiting to take your spot."

    Advice to Management

    Normal hours and treating people with respect would do wonders.
