    I worked at NBC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid good company with dedicated employees

    Creativity is safe not edgy. Afraid to take risks

    Let experts do what they do best not always play it safe

    Pros

    Great range of projects, great co-workers.

    Cons

    NBC.com did not promote internally (just the management side), they would rather hire an outside person. Great talent had to leave the company in order to get the position they wanted somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your talent and give them a chance to move up.

    Pros

    Meet Packer Players, good crew. Had so much fun loved it so much. Got to wear jeans. It was a good environment.

    Cons

    Long Hours. Expected you to work 10 hours every shift for free. Wasn't very hands on. Didn't do much.

    I worked at NBC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The current employees at NBC.com are good hardworking people, you won't find much of a culture there but there isn't much office politics either, which I guess is good. Current management is an improvement compared to the last regime before Comcast which was a disaster. Salaries are average as well as benefits, an excellent 401K. If you make it thru the work week, they serve up FREE bagels on Friday with a splendid selection of cream cheeses.

    Cons

    • Promotions are only in upper management. • 2% raises with no bonuses for the little guy EVER! • Product development is all outsourced so put away your portfolio cause your not going to have anything to show your next employer. • Thousands of dollars wasted on vendors that over charge and under perform. • Zero culture with a revolving door. • Management under values current employee talent and does not communicate well. • Micro managing at it's worst during any crisis. • Upper NBC Universal management has zero understanding of the importance of consumer engagement with products and has an old school advertising mentality of just delivering a message thru cheap graphics and one liners.

    Advice to Management

    • Stop trying to find deliverance with sub standard services from vendors that are clearly ripping you off. • People need to feel like there is hope for better opportunities not just job security. • Utilize your budgets on finding developers that can make the site responsive and stop wasting it on dead beat vendors. • You need to provide better incentives such as bonuses and higher raises. • Grow a backbone and tell the guy upstairs that it's not just about the content to consumers, it's about how you deliver it and make it accessible. • You have talented people working for you, instead of trying to justify budgets help that talent grow and they help you grow.

    Pros

    NBC has the most fun work environment and benefits and pay are awesome!

    Cons

    There is way too much red tape in the hiring process and they tend to overwork their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your "buddies" and hiring people as a favor to someone else and you might just meet your numbers.
