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

Sad to Go
Executive Assistant for VP (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 13, 2013
Pros: work environment, perks, benefits
Cons: poor treatment of employees, present and past and low pay.
Although I loved the work environment and what I did, when my department was laid off and I tried to gain another position within the network, HR and hiring managers treat you as if you never worked there for years. Only if your in good with someone will you get a second shot, also MTV Networks pays their EA 's poorly. I practically needed a second – more... job. – less

Best job ever
Senior Director, Music and Talent (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 20, 2013
Pros: too many to list. ask me.
Cons: long hours that you actually wore like a badge of honor
One of a kind experience that only a handful of people have been lucky enough to have. I advanced from being an intern for 2 years up through senior director of programmer of the channel. That's the equivalent of the biggest radio station in the world (at least back then!). I was also lucky enough to be there during a time of resurrection of corporate – more... and commercial music. Britney, Xtina, Backstreet, N'Snc, Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, etc. A typical day was spent programming the next days programming, tomorrow's TRL countdown or perhaps that weekends 120 Minutes. The studio was always a daily stop as well. Spending time with the guests was very obviously quite important. I learned more than I can type here. My co-workers are still lifelong friends. We were in the trenches together and worked 18 days! It's hard to forget that. Mgmt was exceptional, kind and complimentary. I miss the place and those times all the time. – less

Awesome Management, Great Teamwork, Professional
Marketing Intern (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 14, 2013
Pros: teamwork, communication, incentives
Cons: turnover rate
As an intern, I worked under the Director of Marketing and was able to learn about branding and conducting business meetings with vendors and other departments. It was a great experience to learn marketing terminology, and to enhance on my writing and idea building skills. I recieved help from all of my superiors and received correction when needed – more... to help me understand what was expected of me. I enjoyed the perks of being able to go concerts and other special media events. I truly enjoyed interning. – less

Ad Sales Coordinator (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMay 13, 2013
My personal experience is not typical, I don't think. I was fulfilling 2 jobs, as they only had approval to hire 1 person at the time so I was overwhelmed and didn't have much time to integrate into the culture there. It was, however, a fun environment and I wish that I could have taken advantage of it more.
