I have been working at CNBC as an intern for less than a year
Pros – CNBC has a great team and it is a fantastic opportunity for me to learn about the financial news business. No real complaints here.
Cons – The HQs are hard to get to from the city and hours are very long and busy for an intern. However the hands on experience makes up for it.
Advice to Senior Management – The management seems to have everything under control. Despite a dying news industry, I would wholeheartedly recommend CNBC as a great place to start a career in journalism.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at CNBC
Pros – Camraderie amongst coworkers, quality level of people and technology quite high, ability to have a sense of real satisfaction when a project hits the air or is seen by audiences, wealth of employee resources and benefits available by corporate owners, fun events for employee population on occasion (i.e. holidays, etc). Facility HQ are modern, clean and stylish.
Cons – Managers so overwhelmed by work, no time to dedicate themselves to creating supportive work environment for overworked staff. No interest in build careers of staffs, no upward promotion unless you become someone's lackey or assistant, company doesn't fire employees who continually deny doing their work assignments, are lazy or won't agree to doing what's required of their jobs. Hours can be brutal with no eye on relieving some of the workload on occasion. Dept Manager focuses on his own needs over people on his staff. No recognition of a job well done, ever. No incentive plans for bonus, etc. No analysis of what work is done and how, to develop better practices.
Advice to Senior Management – Provide more opportunities to your Sr. Managers, to learn and execute longterm career development for their staffs. Allow Sr. Managers to rotate workload and provide new opportunities for employees. Reward those employees who are loyal, work hard and do their jobs with no complaining. Recognize the work of all departments, not just the ones that are on-camera or in front of a larger audience.
