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

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, great location. It was a fantastic learning experience with the ability to extends your limits as much as you would like.

    Cons

    There was no pay for interns, at least in some departments. You must be able to get college credit to intern here.

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

    Pros

    Working in pre-production, production, and post. Cool opportunities for going on shoots.

    Cons

    A bunch of downtime during the internship, but that's expected at an internship. They also inform you of this at intern orientation.

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

    Pros

    It's Viacom. You get to see really cool things happening almost all the time, like live awards shows throughout the building. Paid. Cafeteria food is really good. Everyone is really friendly and the culture is really laid-back.

    Cons

    Can't think of many, really. The commute is a little annoying if you're not already in the city. Sometimes there just wasn't enough work for me to do.

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

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing if you are put in the right area. Unless you are high level, dress code is very casual. As an intern, MTV really tries to immerse the student and gives them projects. Interns are supposed to help the company, not just get coffee. This makes for an awesome experience working in Times Square. The company also has different events that network interns and current employees.

    Cons

    No pay, they only give credit. This was hard for me because I had to commute everyday and I lost a lot of money on transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Teach interns the politics of the system and make sure they receive all of the e-mails about intern events.
