    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Comcast is investing in the company, culture is generally very professional & positive

    Cons

    Needed changes can be slow at times due to many levels of decision-makers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for people to advance outside of their business unit. For as long as I worked at NBC I had very limited contact with those outside my business unit unless I specifically sought out networking with them.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    Good environment, excellent properties and managers who seem to legitimately try to balance staff's goals with the overall goals of the department and company

    Cons

    Would like more access to other properties, more mobility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing by reaching out to employees with town halls and so forth. But would also be good if it appeared that these conversations went both ways, they can feel one-sided

    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern

    Pros

    It was a great place to work. I had an internship at NBC and my supervisors were really helpful in preparing me to get a job after the internship was over.

    Cons

    There weren't really any cons other than that I didn't get the actual job. However, that was because they were on a hiring freeze.

    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern

    Pros

    Was in the NYC office and loved how many opportunities were there. Got the opportunity to meet someone new and learn something new on a daily basis! Everyone was very friendly and there are simply so many different assets within NBCUniversal that you are bound to find a fit.

    Cons

    Was really large in size and gets hard to navigate at times. There is also a lot of politics and layers of approval so some things that should be easy become difficult.

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

    Pros

    There were lots of opportunities to learn about the company as a whole
    Tons of fun events

    Cons

    Not so much attention on me learning about the specific job I was hired for
    A lot of down time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone should manage an intern!! Many people are too busy and will leave the intern bored and feeling useless.
