    I worked at NBC

    Pros

    Exciting, challenging, fast-paced work environment. Although it's a large corporation it doesn't feel that way. Each individual show runs as it's own entity.

    Cons

    Long hours, tremendous amount of last minute travel. Senior staff piles on the work at a rapid pace with not a lot of regard to what else is on one's plate.
