    I worked at MTV Networks full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    •Decent Pay and Benefits.
    •Good relationships with customers and some camaraderie with coworkers
    •Reasonable work flow (not too many tickets and projects managed on a case by case basis)
    •Reasonable policies set in place to manage user behavior/workflow in enterprise environment

    Cons

    •Middle Management contentious with staff
    •immediate supervisor does not escalate problems, or "have your back" in customer satisfaction situations
    •Management unaware/unappreciative of individual worker skill sets: starting in 2009, many skilled IT workers were laid off, while many lackluster, or problem employees were retained; this one stymied me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be aware of skills sets of their existing staff: especially when making changes, or lay offs. I don't think management knows who on their staff can do what. I would encourage some sort of reporting (peer endorsements or Vendor certification program) that will be held by management to rectify this problem, so qualified people remain on the job.

    I worked at MTV Networks

    Pros

    Good benefits package, excellent 401k.

    Cons

    I didn't like the way they changed our products & homogenized them into demographic buckets that didn't suit the products. We were a small property, & I don't think the higher-ups really had any idea what we did or how it happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you buy a gaming company, learn how the gaming industry operates - don't try to force it to work on an entertainment-industry model.
