I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

It is just such a huge, powerful, and amazing company I was just in awe of being there every day. I got to do so many fun things that I did not even mind waking up super early and having a long commute. I got to go to talent appearances, movie premieres, press junkets, and watch movies...and was paid for it.

Cons

A lot of down time because they don't want to give interns big important tasks (understandable)

Advice to Management

Make room for more entry level positions so interns can get hired full time!

    I have been working at NBCUniversal part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced and surrounded by hard-working people, I always felt like I was accomplishing something and being productive when I worked here. The people were very conscientious compared to some other networks that I have worked at. Definitely my favorite network to have worked at.

    Cons

    The money is competitive compared to the competition, but raises and bonuses are hard to come by. For a company steeped in making entertainment, there were not many perks open to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize employees by opening the door for them to access more of the content they create, be it the theme parks, shows, or memorabilia that their hard work produces. In the past, a lot of corporations structured something around involving employees and their families, yet in all of my time here, I saw nothing of the sort. Make this more of a place that employees want to integrate into their family somehow.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Freelance employment for most technical positions. The most friendly staff in the business knows how to have fun.

    Cons

    Management in charge make poor decisions daily. Freelancers have to pick up the pieces to get the job done in a professional way.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your freelancers they do most the work in your office.
