    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.

  2. Good for your resume

    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.

  6. I worked as a marketing intern and the experience was worthwhile!

    Pros

    You are included in all meetings and get to interact will all levels of management. Great work culture! Not a typical uptight suit and tie corporation. Many employees, including top executives were very easy to talk to.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to mention.

    Pros

    Fun, 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.

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    As a designer, fun projects.

    Cons

    No 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.

    Pros

    Super nice people. Everyone is very friendly, and wants you to learn about the industry.

    Cons

    Have to ask for work a lot.
    Work isn't always important.

    Advice to Management

    Create a plan or schedule for the interns instead of relying on employees to throw work on the interns
