    I have been working at Viacom Media Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Internships are paid, which is hard to come by in media
    - The HR department makes a huge effort to engage with interns throughout the semester and provide opportunities to help interns prepare for the job search
    - Supervisors tend to be young and very friendly
    - A diverse array of networks and departments you can be placed in

    Cons

    - Depending on your department/network, there may be significant limits to what you're actually allowed to work on or observe. This wasn't the case for me, but some of my peers have expressed these frustrations in their own departments

    I have been working at Viacom Media Networks (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've had a few entertainment industry internships before MTV, and I have enjoyed my time here. There is plenty of respect between employees, and office camaraderie is evident. As an intern, I am encouraged to ask questions and be proactive. Primarily, I read scripts, watch cuts, and carry out basic administrative tasks.

    Cons

    Some of the promises made during the interview process and early days of the internship have not been followed up.

    Advice to Management

    You can totally expect more out of the interns - we're here to work. It would be nice to sit in on more interesting meetings.

    "I love and enjoy working for MTV but I just wish there was more room for mobility within the company."

    Pros

    It is a great place for people to work if they are young and interested in the entertainment industry.

    Cons

    The company lacks mobility within the company.

    Advice to Management

    I think most of the leadership at MTV is great and you guys should try to work harder to promote within.

    Pros

    Mtv was so cool. We got to wear whatever classyish casual outift we wanted to. Every few weeks we would be excused from our duties for an hour to listen to a band. Celebrities were constantly dropping by for meetings. And you're working for a cool, hip, young network that actually can influence a generation.

    Cons

    For me the worst part was the Los Angeles Traffic- hello, 2 hour commute. But other than that as an intern you must obviously do all of the less than desired work load such as moving / packing boxes, organizing and mail duties--but none the less i loved the job

    Advice to Management

    As an intern my manager was one person, my supervisor, and he did a fantastic job. As for the rest of the management i feel i had no insight for feedback.
