I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time for less than a year

Pros

You are working at a company that has grown tremendously and acquired so many networks so that the connections you make will offer you so many opportunities in the entertainment industry. It is like a big family here, even though there are so many employees, every single one is valued. Even the smallest employee contributes to the bigger picture and is a vital asset to the team.

Cons

NBCUniversal is becoming a bit more corporate as their primary agenda is to see the ratings improve and the box office generate revenue. Some of the more "quality" entertainment is being put on the back burner so that more attention can be devoted towards shows and films that appeal to the masses. The business aspect often seems to overshadow the creative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't move people out of areas they thrive at because it doesn't fit in with your new structure

    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    it is not boring, but it is chaotic and there are a lot of politics that drive decisions

    Cons

    the politics and uncertainty are maddening at times. there are a lot of seemingly arbitrary deadlines set with no thought given to the reality of meeting them.
