Supervisor, Media Management (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – December 31, 2013
They were good to me, so I cannot complain. Though career wise I made the right move by changing jobs and heading over to Showtime. Only a few years later job cuts happened at MTV and one can never tell what would have happened if I still worked there, though I felt my work ethic and commitment should have been enough to keep me on. MTV Networks was a great place to start and learn new skills and it set me up to be the Manager I became.
Videotape Operator/Syndication Coordinator (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – June 5, 2017
This was a very long time ago but the management was lousy and the turnaround was very bad, with being asked to do the jobs of 3-4 people a night. The hours were good, with technically half the year off, just an overloaded weekend schedule will take a lot out of you. If you can get past the hours, a good place to work. The management was bad when I was there but I've learned it's improved tremendously.
On-Air Promos Creative Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 18, 2017
Came in as an intern during the busiest time of the year MTV Movie and TV Awards, but didn't get to do much. Didn't look like they were going to be hiring any interns, but honestly felt jaded about the company after having such a lackluster internship.
I've been "Permalance" for over 6 years. They keep renewing my contract with no benefits. I'm not sure that's legal but I'm sure there is fine print. The atmosphere is fun and I've gained a lot of experience but there is no job security and very little room for advancement. People are expendable and those that aren't the big wigs are looked at as as a VIN number and not an individual.
Fun, Discounts at certain businesses, gained experience
no benefits after years of employment, management, communication
Productive environment, laid back, organized workplace
Assstant/Project based employee (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 19, 2017
I loved working for Viacom. My team was inviting and always helpful, they especially put in effort to help me learn the ropes of the department. MY workload was always manageable and I was doing work that I was genuinely interested in outside of the office also.
Perfect work schedule, interesting work, manageable workload
