    Pros

    Having worked at ABC, CBS, NBC and elsewhere - I can confidently say this is the best place I ever worked. They appreciate behind-the-scenes talent and will reward you for it. Your experience may vary, depending on your assignment, but in general - you'll have it better here than anywhere. The switch from GE to Comcast was also helpful

    Cons

    The suburban location is somewhat of a downside, but they make it easy to get there with a free NYC shuttle and car service where necessary. Also wish there were some lunch alternatives nearby, but the cafeteria is pretty good ..

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing the good people how much you appreciate them. Nothing is more helpful for team spirit than that.

    Pros

    Perfect. Lots of great people, great food, great opoortunities, nothing not to like about working there. It was an incredible place. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    Cons

    I couldn't really say anything bad about it if I tried. I guess you could say the food was a little overpriced. . . maybe. But even that is a stretch.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Great benefits. First in business.

    Cons

    Limited diversification of subject. They love to compliment themselves. they do hire from within but are not open to outside talent. If you are in one segment of the company, it's difficult to transfer elsewhere. HR Managers don't recognize talent. It's a network with no personality.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know who actually works here. Everyone is a number.

    Fast paced, interesting subject matter...

    Cons

    Long commute (but the have shuttles from NYC). Once you're out there, that's pretty much it. Off putting hiring policies. they let a lot of good people go because....?

    The layers of corporate bureaucracy are staggering, and it negatively effects the workplace.
