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

    Pros

    Fun, young, energetic staff with a lot of good ideas. They don't take themselves too seriously, but do take their work very seriously. The work I did was not very "intern-y", and I was given responsibilities and trust in my capabilities.

    Cons

    Easy to blend in because the company is so large, and you will be forgotten if you do not network and make sure people remember you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make interns feel valued and a useful part of the team.

    Pros

    Work environment is fun and, while high pressure, very laid back.

    As an intern was not given many opportunities to gain a lot of hands on experience. Did a lot of office work.

    Don't forget that the interns are there to learn.

    Pros

    I was an intern with one of MTV's websites. They produce daily content which is really important experience for a communications student. Very demanding -- almost considered a staffer.

    Cons

    Typical office drama...a lot of gossip. I wasn't really used to that, but I guess it comes with the territory. Sometimes staffers had to scramble to find things for interns to do.
