Chance to do what you love
VP, TV LAND ON-AIR PROMOTION OPERATIONS (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 8, 2015
If you like to multi-task the is the job for you and you have opportunity to step up and present new ideas especially with new technologies and changing business. However the industry and company has changed and challenges are mounting and leadership is under much pressure.

Production (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 6, 2015
Pros: bagel wednesdays, happy hours, young environment
Cons: very difficult to become full-time staff
It's a tradeoff working there. The people are great, but the pay is low and very few people are actually staff. Poor work/life balance.

Great place to start but limited growth opportunity
Senior Manager, Retail Sales Analytics (Current Employee), New York, NYJune 30, 2015
Pros: Big company and great benefits
Cons: limited growth opportunity
Great place to start but limited growth opportunity. Office culture varies by channel. Some departments do better about promoting staff than others. I've heard more stories of bad management experiences than good ones but there are some good managers there.

Such a fun atmosphere full of color and uniqueness
Ad Sales Intern (Former Employee), Santa Monica, CAMay 12, 2015
This job was amazing - every floor had a different color and the chairs were all clear, metal, or made of some other material. The lobby was not like a stiff law firm but laid back, with a 1950s trailer – more... parked right in the middle of it.

I researched different marketing approaches for the account executives so that they would know what to pitch to potential clients.

I was in Santa Monica, right next to google, and would eat lunch with different people right outside the building on picnic tables. – less

Loved working here.
Project Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 24, 2015
I learned so much about marketing, advertising and television. I spent a good part of my career at MTV and had the pleasure of working in various departments. I worked my way up the corporate ladder by starting out working for the President of the company, as her assistant, and then moving over to marketing. I loved working here...unfortunately, I was part of a huge lay off in 2009.

Fun, Productive, creative workplace
Pilot (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 8, 2014
Pros: awesome cafeteria
Cons: temporary assignments
Queuing music videos. Prepping cue cards. Acquiring permits for live shoots. Typing up and presenting Clearance Forms. Gathering materials for the pre-taped and Live shows. Providing support to Producers. – more... Locating and delivering Tape requests.
The culture is one of inclusiveness, creativity and fun. My co-workers were funny, driven, professional, and helpful. Work was more like Summer Camp. We had so much fun. One of the best things about the job was learning on the fly. As daunting as some of the technical aspects were, it was incredibly empowering knowing I could resolve some challenging issues.
The hardest part of the job was letting go and accepting when a Show ended. – less

Decent place to start

Pros: co workers
Cons: management, salary, time off, lack of advancement
12 hour shifts, 7am- 7om or 7pm -7am

A god entry level job but not much room for advancement. You'll learn how to use the switchers, graphic systems and schedule. Co-workers are great! The schedule is very tough especially on the night shift.
