    People
    Culture
    Laid Back environment
    Many Fun company events for employees
    Summer Friday's
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Salaries need to catch up to market
    Top level very cliquish - if you are in you are in but if you are out good luck

    Advice to Management

    Engage yourselves with everyone not just your "clique" it's not high school and remember that everyone starts somewhere and one day those smart employees you don't even say hi to while you are walking down the hall because you are such in a rush to an important meeting may be your boss one day

    I have been working at Mtv Network Latin America full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule / Looks great on a resume / Great benefits (medical, vacation, bonus)

    Cons

    Working environment is too laid back, hard to get things done / Extremely clique-ish with toxic, reality TV stab-you-in-the-back drama / Not a collaborative environment / Sink or swim / Management has no clear goals set for the company, and they have different opinions / Lots of ego / Prepare to meet lots of resistance to whatever you want to do / Terrible HR management / Team operates as a friend's club with non members being left out of interesting projects and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting people who aren't actually good at what they do sends the message to everyone that it's more important to play politics and suck up than it is to actually be good at something / Higher ranks are arrogant and despotic with fellow employees.

    "Poor Management and Limited Resources"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The fun environment is both stimulating and inviting but runs a fine line of becoming unproductive. The office feel young and lively and often hosts social events to reward employees for their hard work. Very much a 'family' environment.

    Cons

    Diligent and competent employees do not stick around for long - either because they are among the many 'temps' or because they are staff who gets tired of the unprofessionalism. This company offers little room for growth and compensation is inadequate.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a surplus of staff in some departments and a deficiency in others. Consider reallocating "heads" to better suit the needs of revenue generating departments.
