    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    great benefits, pay tends to be on the high side, great co-workers, unique and entertaining industry. Never a dull day.

    Cons

    Tough business, especially the local stations. Competitive environment. Not for the thin-skinned, timid or sensitive. Management can be a revolving door, so know how to adapt to new leaders or you could go out with the tide. At the local level, not unusual for complete VP turnover when new management comes in.

    Current Employee - Graphic Artist in New York, NY

    I have been working at NBCUniversal as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    the fame and brand of NBC. your resume will look good with NBC on it. competitive pay rate for old union jobs.

    Cons

    I don't even know where to begin.
    can'te been with the company for 7 years now.
    I'm now a daily hire and for some pepole that might be a new term that you never heard before. NBC is a huge company and over the years they just want to go cheaper and cheaper in terms of salary and in everyway.
    there are so many departments so I can't speak for all those departments but many are corrupted, meaning managers are useless and they just keep creating meaningless and useless higher management positions when they cut down on actual working class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most employee thinks managements are useless. please do something that works and stop playing the game of throne.
