It's a big corporation that really takes care of its employees and treats them with dignity and respect.

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.

    Pros

    Great people, smart people, talented people. Working on the lot or have access to the lot. Lots of affinity groups for women, GLBT, Asian, Black, and other employees - very inclusive work environment. Lots of women in management.

    Cons

    All these talented people can barely get their jobs done with all the beaurocratic obstacles tossed in their way thanks to GE's "military"-esque management style. Corporate need for managing every statistic and every detail of every detail has taken most all of what you loved about your job out of your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the metrics/statistics/managing of the managing of what's being managed and just get back to letting people work. Offshoring, while extremely profitable for GE and has brought many bright people to our work environment from India, has been a true killer of any joy of work for all employees in IT. Basically our jobs are to manage people to do what used to be our own jobs. Really fun. Not.
