Pros

Great company culture, innovative management who try to actively make NBCU the place to build a career, not just have a job. Great benefits.

Cons

As with most media companies, the compensation leaves something to be desired. There are a few layers of bureaucracy, but for the most part it's a great place to be.

Advice to Management

Keep moving forward

    Pros

    Large reputable name recognition. Promote a family like atmosphere and encourage teamwork

    Cons

    Very political. Like-minded thinking is expected, new ideas are rarely encouraged. Lack of trust and integrity at all levels. Eye opening considering the possibilities. Too many "fiefdoms" being protected at the expense of the company. Penny wise, pound foolish.

    Advice to Management

    Balance hiring and promotions with internal vs external. Company tends to reward like-minded thinking and dismiss change rather quickly. Needs to be more proactive approaches to best in class management and operations - everything is running on reactions. Very difficult to fix as its thoroughly engrained at all levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Meet tons of great people your age, opportunity to explore different departments at NBC

    Cons

    No real opportunity unless you want to be apart of he 9-5 executive side of entertainment
    Only able to be an assistant after you leave the program, even if you enter it with higher achievements

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really, you guys have a great program its just not meant for creatives
