    Improved but still a long way to go

    Digital Designer (Former Employee) Universal City, CA

    ProsThe current employees at NBC.com are good hardworking people, you won't find much of a culture there but there isn't much office politics either, which I guess is good. Current management is an improvement compared to the last regime before Comcast which was a disaster. Salaries are average as well as benefits, an excellent 401K. If you make it thru the work week, they serve up FREE bagels on Friday with a splendid selection of cream cheeses.

    Cons• Promotions are only in upper management.
    • 2% raises with no bonuses for the little guy EVER!
    • Product development is all outsourced so put away your portfolio cause your not going to have anything to show your next employer.
    • Thousands of dollars wasted on vendors that over charge and under perform.
    • Zero culture with a revolving door.
    • Management under values current employee talent and does not communicate well.
    • Micro managing at it's worst during any crisis.
    • Upper NBC Universal management has zero understanding of the importance of consumer engagement with products and has an old school advertising mentality of just delivering a message thru cheap graphics and one liners.

    Advice to Senior Management• Stop trying to find deliverance with sub standard services from vendors that are clearly ripping you off.
    • People need to feel like there is hope for better opportunities not just job security.
    • Utilize your budgets on finding developers that can make the site responsive and stop wasting it on dead beat vendors.
    • You need to provide better incentives such as bonuses and higher raises.
    • Grow a backbone and tell the guy upstairs that it's not just about the content to consumers, it's about how you deliver it and make it accessible.
    • You have talented people working for you, instead of trying to justify budgets help that talent grow and they help you grow.

    Great place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompetitive atmosphere, hard working, always felt part of a team that was award winning, respected and top notch

    ConsWas hard to break through into other lines of profession. Felt very exclusive and non supported, but then again, I was young and naive.

    ProsNBC has the most fun work environment and benefits and pay are awesome!

    Neutral

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bowling Green, KY

    ProsThe pay is awesome!!! They pay based on experience and it is really a good place to work!!! Also the people are really friendly!!

    ConsThe call center manager was not as knowledgeable as he should have been about the companies policies. He was a good person but he really didn't have the answers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more aware of the company. The systems that is used is crazy. You should really do something different as far as that goes.
