    A much better place before the NBC executive takeover

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIt's a very fast paced environment so if that's what you're looking for you won't be disappointed. If you're in the good graces of upper management you will be taken care of financially.

    ConsSince the new former NBC executives came in the workplace has become much more cut-throat and less of a family atmosphere. Long hours are expected and there is little thought to work-life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo you think your employees can't see thru the statement ' There are 6000 employees now and there will be 6000 employees next year', especially when the thought of an IPO is on everyone's lips?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Scrappy Underdog

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSmart investment in the right equipment for this technical-oriented employer...even if a bit on the late side at times.

    ConsHolds onto the wrong employees. Does not remove under performers, instead choosing to eliminate stand out (co-workers) for political reasons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to middle management at the station level. They are the ones doing, and seeing first-hand, the actual work.
