    Pros

    - Looks great on a resume
    - Get to work for well known networks
    - People are friendly for the most part

    Cons

    MTV takes advantage of all the free labor they can get. It is super easy to get an intern position at MTVN, but once you graduate, forget about getting hired there. The useless "internship seminars" are just in place to make it seem like they are interested in watching you grow into a prospective MTV employee. It's all phony. Don't waste your time. Seek a better internship elsewhere where you actually have a chance of getting hired after graduation. I honestly think they post fake positions on the career site just to keep the HR recruiters busy. Ridiculous.

    Pros

    When there are things for the interns to do, it's great. You'll get to sit in on tapings and help coordinate shoots.

    Cons

    We worked during a very slow season. Our supervisors had nothing to do, we in turn had nothing to do.

    Advice to Management

    perhaps, the office atmosphere could be a bit more intern friendly.

    Pros

    Love the cafeteria, interesting people, interesting projects, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Was told I could get hands-on experience in the internship I never received, really bad desk set-up for an intern, never worked with or spoke to the person who was supposed to be my supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Allow interns more opportunity to move from department to department.
