Pros

While an outpost, it is NBC, and you get some minor spillover from the company's connections with Hollywood. Conan O'Brien visited the station once.

Cons

The people are exceedingly average, with a few standouts, and the culture is stultifying. No one's interested in change or perspectives from outside the television industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make some startling moves and bring in flesh blood, including a general manager and news director who don't have a background in television.

    I worked at NBC

    Pros

    The pay is awesome!!! They pay based on experience and it is really a good place to work!!! Also the people are really friendly!!

    Cons

    The call center manager was not as knowledgeable as he should have been about the companies policies. He was a good person but he really didn't have the answers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of the company. The systems that is used is crazy. You should really do something different as far as that goes.

    Summer Internship at NBC Washington

    I worked at NBC

    Pros

    Show staff was incredibly helpful to interns looking to get into television media, relied on interns more heavily than most, and enabled interns to move between shows/departments to get the best perspective of NBC as a whole. Interns also interacted with high-profile guests (politicians, authors, etc.)

    Cons

    Longer hours than most other internships, but this was offset by the quality of work and experience. Occasionally experienced extended downtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Widen the NBC news/ MSNBC divide between hard news and opinion show marketing. Provide interns a clearer pathway to full-time employment.
