Great opportunity for students currently enrolled in college.

Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsThe 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great environment, tons of fun, learned a lot

Desktop Support Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsIt'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.

ConsCan'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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
