    Pros

    Fun brands, extremely intelligent and creative people. The company is going through change and positive growth since the acquisition by Comcast. Upper management is smart and focused on growth and innovation.

    Cons

    Culture can be competitive in an unhealthy way. East coast offices are less laid back than west coast offices. Work/life balance can be tricky. Not good at helping employees grow in career development. Can be difficult to move between divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value people with experience in the company.

    Former Employee - Carnival Clerk in Universal City, CA

    I worked at NBCUniversal part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved being able to go to USH whenever I wanted and I loved the access to events and the different programs offered for health and wellness.

    Cons

    The scheduling was so annoying. They hired so many people so often that other employees got hours cut. The wage is terrible. With Universal being such a moneymaker, they could afford to pay their people a living wage. Happy staff, happy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites. Most of my managers were really attentive and helpful but depending on who was working at the time, sometimes I felt my needs weren't met as others were.

    Pros

    Generally sallerys are competitive even though there are descrapencys in pay rates between different divisions for people doing exactly the same tasks. Exposure to cutting edge of technology is has always been a priority within the company.

    Cons

    There is a clear class structure between divisions, an upstairs downstairs mentality is pevalent with employes openly hostile to members outside their group. There is deep resentment of engineering staff by the editorial staff.

    Pros

    You do get to meet a lot of important people in the industry.

    Cons

    You don't get enough time to speak with them to actually build a relationships. The tasks given to you are mundane and there's no room for promotion.
