    Pros

    Great benefits, Comcast is investing in the company, culture is generally very professional & positive

    Cons

    Needed changes can be slow at times due to many levels of decision-makers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for people to advance outside of their business unit. For as long as I worked at NBC I had very limited contact with those outside my business unit unless I specifically sought out networking with them.

    Pros

    Depends on where in the massive conglomerate that is NBC's. My office had a fabulous talented, funny and hardworking people. Great networking lots of little fun perks.

    Cons

    Keeping your position alive is always on your mind. TV is a fickle industry and it's amplified at this network is my general feeling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote within.

    Pros

    It is very hands-on and you get the opportunity to do almost everything! The people I worked with were very nice and encouraging.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons that I feel I need to discuss, except that this internship requires the intern to really think outside the box and be quick on their foot and with thoughts and ideas.

    Pros

    At NBCUniversal there's always room to grow and expand and network, which is a big plus. Even though it is a large company there is a sense of community and family. The company offers great perks and treat employees well.

    Cons

    Its a big company - easy to feel lost in if you don't network appropriately and reach out. As an intern especially, you have to work hard to make yourself seen and heard, and to prove your value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the little guys!
