Not as great as it seems. Don't be blinded by the name!

Design Intern (Former Employee)

I worked at MTV Networks as an intern

ProsAs a designer, fun projects.

ConsNo sense of company culture ro community, and no appreciation for its employees. You are a cog in the machine, alongside thousands of employees working to add "MTV" to their resume. Little appreciation ro recognition; you are a nobody. It is inexcusable for internships to be unpaid, at such a massive company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Too big, too much a$$ kissing, but looks great on a resume!

Intern (Former Employee)

I worked at MTV Networks as an intern for less than a year

ProsI was an intern, but this is what I observed:

-Laid back environment
-Casual attire
-Looks great on a resume
-Nice people for the most part

Cons-MTV is huge so you feel like a number
-WAY too much a$$ kissing (not my style)
-Located in an annoying spot (Times Square)
-Does not guarantee you a job when you finish your internship

Advice to Senior Management-Listen more to ideas of the people working under you
-Become more in touch with the company's younger targeted audience

Generally nice coworkers but little mobility

MTV Networks Intern (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at MTV Networks as an intern for less than a year

ProsFun, hip and modern work place with a young demographic. Dress is casual and people seem interested in meeting others. Easy to be hired as an intern.

ConsLittle mobility within the company and limited benefits turn me off from this company. The atmosphere, while fun, can seem a bit unprofessional at times.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
