Fun place to work - but effective top managers have been drained

Current Employee - Sourcing Manager in New York, NY
Current Employee - Sourcing Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Fun entertainment environment, valuable support from Comcast management. Lot's of exposure to high level projects, unfortunately, that's because team is realatively spread thin. Get to see many Universal films pre-release! Despite the cons - it's a place you can feel proud to work and even run into celebrities from time to time.

Cons

In Sourcing Department little to no career growth path unless you threaten to leave. Senior most management team doesn't seem to care about employees and all of those senior managers who were loved in the pre-Steve Burke days have left. Not enough vacation days, no bonuses below Director level (this is definitely not banking type benefits).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start taking career paths more seriously and promote your valuable employees.

    Pros

    I like the product, and the hours aren't crazy

    Cons

    Micromanagement, low budget for my division, limited opportunities for advancement, cronyism way more important than ability or contribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little objective and don't blame the messenger
