    Pros

    This internship has been one of the best learning experiences that I have ever had. The Campus 2 Career program is great at providing events for interns to go to so that they can grow professionally. I have also experienced once in a lifetime opportunities such as seeing the SNL studio, getting to meet NBC personalities, and working on real-time projects that showcased my skills and what I learned. The program immerses you in the industry and you get real experience. You also become so close with the other interns and get to go to great events with them! I highly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in working for the television industry

    Cons

    I do not have anything cons to share.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and continue to give interns real projects and assignments that will help out the team. Working on projects helps us understand the job better and helps us build upon our skills.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time

    Pros

    Working at NBC comes with a lot of perks due to the size and connections that they have. This is a major plus of working here.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company there are many levels of management, and at times this makes communication an issue.
