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

    Pros

    Very cool office. Low workload (also a con). Also, being able to put MTV / Viacom on my resume led to more opportunities down the road. Incredibly friendly HR staff as well.

    Cons

    Almost no useful / educational / interesting tasks were given in the CMI department internship. Despite my best efforts, I wasn't able to learn much about the industry or the company. I mostly sent off pre-written emails for an executive assistant and never even saw the head of the department. Opportunities to assist higher level employees, sit in on more legit work, etc. were slim to none.

    Advice to Management

    You hire smart capable interns. Treat them like such, wasted resource there. Exit interviews with interns might be a good thing both for recruiting good talent and learning how to better utilize interns.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Cool working environment. Lots of young people, and all the floors have different designs. I interned with the production management department, so there were lots of cool shoots to go on-- movie premieres, American Idol events, etc.

    Cons

    There are so many interns, that employees don't really know what to do with them. Most days I just sat at my desk and was bored. MTV tries to create a feeling like they were going to help outstanding interns get a job, but that is just not true. Most employees in production management stay there forever, and an openings go to friends or family.

    Advice to Management

    Your internship program is too big. Make it more exclusive so the interns actually get a great experience rather than being the errand boy for everyone, including the PAs... who should be the errand boys.
