    An Excellent Start

    (Former Employee)

    ProsI was able to do a great deal at my internship. From getting published to learning more about social media, NBC was a great start in an internship!

    ConsI was a little distracted by the open layout of the office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing to add.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    NBC Television Network, New York, good to me for 26 years, counting Staff, Contract, Free Lance.

    Announcer (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsProfessional equipment, no junk.
    Comfortable working conditions.
    Great security.
    Payment on time, at the Network level.
    Management tends to leave you alone, so long as you don't screw up.

    ConsCompetition within The Building was tough.
    Fee payments not as fast at the Local Channel 4 level.
    AFTRA allowed a No-Strike clause, so we could not honor NABET's picket lines.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf it's not too late, in terms of budgeting & reorganization attacks, try to keep running the place like a Television Network, not a hardhat area, or whatever type business any new owners think they're running. i.e., try to continue to try to get any non-knowledgeable Senior Management to "let the doctor be the doctor."

    Internship

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat learning opportunities and plenty of people willing to answer questions.

    ConsAny unpaid internship is always tough on the bank account, although they did cover travel.

    Only an intern but...

    Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsI was only an intern but I genuinely loved working at NBC. Overall it was a great company and I really learned a lot about myself and what I want to pursue as a career. I was in NBC Sports so I don't know if this is for everywhere but in my department they offered meet and greets with executives from all sorts of departments so you could hear how they got where they are. This was how I decided I want to go to law school and I wouldn't have known that without their help!

    ConsI do wish I got to do more hands-on projects... but at the same time I wouldn't have learned the industry as well without the "mundane" tasks I was assigned. I only sat in on one phone call and it would have been better to have been able to sit in on more meetings or conferences.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow interns into more aspects of day to day tasks. Shadow days maybe?

    Amazing first experience at a large company with great co-workers.

    Freelance Associate Producer (Former Employee) Sochi (Russia)

    ProsI was able to feel comfortable around my co-workers so I could do my job in the best way possible. I haven't had such a great working environment in a long time.

    ConsIn the high stress environment, it was sometimes hard to really get a hold on some things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs it was my first time with the company I expected more of a formal training, so sometimes when I had questions it look a while for me to get an answer.

    Incredible summer Olympics 2012 in London.

    Driver/Runner (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsFree food! Plenty of overtime at good rates, great colleagues and working environment. Nice uniform and all travel covered by the free pass. Would do it again.

    ConsLong often unsociable hours with last minute shift changes. Sometimes instructions contradict previous training and what the clients actually want done.
