Old media giant struggling to adapt...

Director (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at NBCUniversal

ProsGood benefits
Smart, hard-working employees
Fun, creative work environment
Worldwide brand recognition

ConsSenior management is out of touch with new technologies impacting the business
Hierarchy and convoluted org structure impedes decisions from being made quickly
Many groups within the company are working on similar projects and "reinventing the wheel" without knowing it.
Old boys club where well-connected people get hired into good positions even if they are not the most qualified.
Not enough minorities in senior management.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on positioning the company for long-term success and less on short-term wins. Hire and promote more minorities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Poor Leadership

Sourcing Manager (Former Employee)
Universal City, CA

I worked at NBCUniversal


Pros: Media company is a plus - exciting "products" that you can be proud… Cons: Specifically in the organization that I left - there is immense turn over. It's actually pretty crazy, about 70%. Large part… Advice to Senior Management: Time for some new blood. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

Mixed bag

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at NBCUniversal


Pros: It's media ... where else can you say Jimmy Fallon in the elevator and Brian Williams at… Cons: I feel that the HR and management here is by far the worst I've ever seen. There's many days that I just want to… Advice to Senior Management: Respect and recognize your employees for their efforts. If you want to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
