    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a lot of fun to be an NBC intern. The internship program is very structured and they spend a lot of time making sure you get the most out of your summer experience with them. You get the opportunity to hear many important people speak about a wide range of topics and you get a chance to be a part of a venerable institution. They really value their interns, unlike many companies. Also a great place to have a connection with for after graduation - there are always new openings throughout the company.

    Cons

    Their policy is that interns can only work 2.5 days a week, so if you're hoping for a full-time position for the summer, this won't be it.

    Former Employee - Intern in Studio City, CA

    I worked at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    Management made me an integral part of the team; I was allowed to sit in on most meetings and conference calls, some of which directors were excluded from. Boss (SVP) was always receptive to my comments and questions, and the tasks handed to me were very rarely "intern typical".

    HR hosted numerous networking events and skill building activities.

    Cons

    Commuting to the valley was not ideal, and though $10/hr is above minimum wage, it's not much living in the LA area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great facilities and benefits. Amazing people. Huge company with lots of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Managers won't force you to learn and move up. You have to do it on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little feedback goes a long way.
