Good company
Digital Media Librarian (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 11, 2014
Pros: inner cafeteria, discounts to certain things
Cons: expensive prices on their meals to keep up with the area, sometimes worked weekends
MTV Networks was an overall good experience. Excellent work environment in all their locations in the city. I learned a fair amount of how the media is stored and their how diligent all of their workers are when it comes to putting together a show or a news piece or even when it comes down to the their archiving system. the people were good to work – more... with and getting along with. – less

The larger part of my day is made up of coordinating with other team members to ensure productive results. I have taken classes on the different communication styles to help me with effective communication. I have also learned a lot how to manage and balance work with personal life.

Copy Specialist (Current Employee), Hauppauge, NYMay 31, 2014
I have worked for MTV Networks for the last 14 years and it has been a pleasant experience. The company is very casual. Of course, you work hard, but the company has your back if you put in the time.

Not enough growth within the department
Production Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 14, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits and good perks
Cons: not much opportunity for growth within the department/company
check emails, catalog assests into system, coordinate pickups for orders and outside courier and vendors.
management tends to overlook at my talents and already decide who to pick for open positions.
my co-worker communicate and help one another when needed
my job is not that difficult and the most enjoyable part of the day is when I leave.

Fun creative environment working for "the man"
Show Producer (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: large workforce, possible benefits
Cons: freeland mentality for younger employees
MTV and Vh1 are great places to work in order to keep involved in pop culture, music, movies, reality TV, etc. though of course it's more reality-based than anything else.

The legendary Behind the Music and other rockDocs keep the credibility strong.

I wish I didn't settle out of court
Master Control Operator (Former Employee), Hauppauge, NYFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: watch tv all day, work half the year (if no server explodes or satillite falls over.
Cons: watch tv all day
it was awesome everything was awesome until they chose to terminate my employment through nefarious means and then slander me. New York is an at will state they could have fired me for any reason like its not you its us, or you have to much fun at work your excessively happy but instead they just lied in every direction including the lawyer from human – more... rights division. other than that it was awesome. – less

Absolutely amazing five years of my life - prime pop culture gig
Executive Assistant to SVP, Marketing & Sales (Former Employee), New York, New YorkJanuary 21, 2014
Pros: worked with production team on award shows, phenomenal creative teams and family-like envt, fast-paced; birds-eye view on mngmt as exec assist
Cons: my boss left the company during the big layoffs and as an executive assistant, i got lost in the management shuffle for a couple of months but remained on payroll - strange, but common situation for ea's in entertainment
Have you seen The Devil Wears Prada? That was my life for 5 years, only my bosses were amazing and I'm red head. The management was as rewarding as they were demanding. Specifically, I often worked until 9 or 10pm when award shows (VMA's, Movie Awards, etc...) were in season, but I got to travel to the shows (LA mostly) and work with the production – more... teams at the big award show venues. I am still close with my boss and the reason for leaving was mostly because I outgrew the position and my boss left the company (Viacom) after my 3rd year, so I had to start over as an assistant with another executive (Jeannie Scalzo). I got an internship in Costa Rica and left the job to pursue that and accelerated my masters degree at Columbia to finish earlier and focus on my studies. I was working full time and going to school for the first half of my journey at the Columbia School of Journalism. I worked with some of the entertainment industry's most talented, spirited and creative people--most of whom I am still in touch and have included into my personal life as close friends. – less

High stress, fast pace environment that flourishes on pressure
Production Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 8, 2014
I researched guests and pitched ideas for segments, the show I worked on was filmed and aired live, so it was very stressful but fast paced. Occasionally, I was on-air talent. Good team work with coworkers and supportive direct management, but poor upper management.

Was a great company
Supervisor, Media Management (Former Employee), Hauppauge, NYDecember 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 – more... a great place to start and learn new skills and it set me up to be the Manager I became. – less
