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

    Pros

    The experience I was able to gain was very helpful for later in my career. Everyone was very welcoming, supportive and passionate about their job. I enjoyed the perks of working for MTV and getting to work with the best and the brightest

    Cons

    The hours at times were long and difficult. I wasn't always sure there was clear vision for what I was working on. It was difficult to know which projects were supposed to be priority over other projects because there were so many

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to create a better flow for projects, to make sure that which is being worked on it priority. Try focusing on fewer projects and make them great, as opposed to tackling so many different items
