    I have been working at NBCUniversal as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The internship program here at NBCU is absolutely phenomenal. I consider myself lucky every single day that I come into work because of the unprecedented exposure to people and information, the warm company culture that I feel a part of (even as just an intern), the unparalleled networking opportunities with fellow interns and higher up employees, the resourcefulness of Campus 2 Career who make it their mission to make the internship program an enjoyable one, and the added on benefits of discount tickets, studio tours, panels/seminars, and more. I would recommend an internship at NBCU to any and all college students who are passionate about the industry.

    Cons

    I wish it were possible to intern more than just 2 or 3 days a week, but that's ultimately the way it needs to be in order for each department to have - at least - 2 interns.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    Summer hours, pay, folks are generally great

    Cons

    Sooo top heavy. 1 VP will have 1 or 2 employees. And in some divisions, there are almost more VP then workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some real HR folks in there that can break this beast up

    Pros

    Great place for advancement and very supportive business groups. Opportunities to work outside of your normal day to day on volunteer projects as well

    Cons

    No cons, again, great place to work. People are smart, driven, and believe in the company. In recent years a lot of smart decisions have been made that have provided rapid growth and the #1 network on TV.

    Pros

    This was one of my first internships during college. My boss was really laid back, welcoming & gave me a lot of responsibility which was awesome.

    Cons

    I didn't meet a lot of people outside of my department. We kept to ourselves in our immediate one.
