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.

    Pros

    Salaries are competitve to good, when you're hired full-time; company too often hires freelancers on a day-rate to save money. There is a certain prestige still associated with the network, but more to outsiders than those within the buildings.

    Cons

    capricious management, little options for growth. In recent years, the company has lost sight of its news focus and, in panic, rushed to make seriously damaging decisions in its newsrooms. I dream of the days when there was mutual respect between management and staff. It is virtually impossible to find now. Employees are terminated without cause, on a whim, without notice, making the level of anxiety and paranoia very high. The atmosphere is tense and often confrontational.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect employees, value their contributions, realize that long term employees have much to offer the company
