    Pros

    The Campus 2 Career program was very helpful and supportive of all of the interns. They offered professional development workshops throughout the semester, and helped many interns secure full-time jobs. as a whole, NBCUniversal really invests in its employees, especially those early in their careers.

    Cons

    There are so many interns every semester, especially in the summer, so it can be a little overwhelming. C2C planned networking events and off-the-clock events to help interns get to know each other.

    It is a large company, so it can be hard to stand out. Freelance employees to not have access to benefits, the parking structure on the lot is a pain
