    Pros

    Pros

    The Santa Monica office was a laid back atmosphere. Dress code is casual and every person I worked with and met were nice and helpful. If I didn't have a career change decision, I would have wanted to spend my entire career at MTV Networks.

    Cons

    Don't have any complaints except living in the valley the commute was rather far to Santa Monica every day.

    Pros

    As an intern, MTVN staff are always willing to help you find experience in different areas of the company. Everyone treated me like a part of the team immediately, gave great feedback and always challenged me!

    Cons

    It is definitely a huge company and has that huge company mentality, it can be easy to get lost in the crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Just to continue doing what they're doing. I felt very connected and cared for the entire time I was there.

    Pros

    Its a relaxed work environment with a young, energetic and funny group of people working there. Everyone is very dedicated to their work and no one puts in any less than their full effort. There is good support within the company and a friendly relationship between departments.

    Cons

    I am the only intern on my floor. While I have a great working and friendly relationship with my co-workers, I have no social opportunities to meet other interns.

    Advice to Management

    For their internship program, 1. allow interns to choose not to accept credit. (for legal purposes pay them $1, or something similar) This issue almost prevented me from working this summer, and 2. hold intern-only events so that we can network and keep in contact throughout the summer even if we are in different departments.
