    I worked at Viacom Media Networks as an intern

    Pros

    Experience and cool company. Every day can be different. Only those who are persistent will thrive.

    Dead-ends. Long hours at times. There's not a lot of cons at working at such a prestige company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work hard and you'll go far

    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.

    Pros

    Felt like I was an operable part of my department, never a dull day. Respected and thanked for every effort.

    Cons

    Literally none. Amazing learning opportunity with the right department and a great chance to glean the inner workings of such a commendable network.

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

    Pros

    There are many pros to interning with MTV Networks. Not only does it look great on a resume (who hasn't heard of MTV?), but it's also a great place to be if you're looking to gain meaningful real world experience. I was never asked to get anyone's coffee and only a few times was I asked to make copies.

    Cons

    The only real con I can think of is that it's in the middle of time square. Some may perceive this as a pro, but if you don't want to bump elbows with tons of tourists on your commute, then I would say it's a bit of a downside.

    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.

    Pros

    Very prestigous name on your resume. The connections you make are valuable and easy to stay in touch and network. The people are really kind, for the most part, sometimes snooty. Really casual, laid back atmosphere. Senior management is really awesome!

    Cons

    You don't get to sit in on any meetings or do anything exciting. You restock the fridge and get bagels and food from the food trucks for people. A lot of assistants cry and secretly dislike each other. BUT you'll survive.

    Advice to Management

    Try to involve the interns more. Burning disks and getting food is fun, but so is learning.

    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.
