Too political. Not focused on entertainment.

Former Employee - Category Manager in Universal City, CA

I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay. Benefits are good.

Cons

Too corporate. Too many politics. More talk less action. Not focused on entertainment. Don't care about career development or their people. HR is a joke. Without a doubt the worst place I've ever worked. I do not recommend this place to anyone in entertainment. No in senior management had entertainment experience. Unbelieveable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on making better content. Seems like too much focus is on ruining employees lives. Hire more people with entertainment knowledge.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    Fun to work in 30 Rock
    Great supervisors
    Many facilities being updated and renovated

    Cons

    Terrible pay and not many raises
    Company pride is forced and overdone
    Talent is paid far too much compared to production staff for the amount of work done by both
    Not much room for advancement (to be expected)
    Most of HR is like a high school clique - immature and not very helpful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your production staff more, pay talent less, ring in HR

    I worked at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    Friendly staff with no negative attitudes. Very helpful when training me for the position. Get bagels on Thursdays with delicious cream cheese.

    Cons

    Usually very quiet around the office because everyone is hard at work-I expected it to be a little bit more lively and the ambiance of the office would be nicer if it facilitated a more creative vibe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The offices should be more integrated with a constant flow of communication between departments. It doesn't matter if one department doesn't directly affect the other. It would create a better sense of team work and a livelier corporate culture if there was more face-to-face communication.
