    I worked at Telemundo Communications as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    A division of NBC Universal, good perks but you won’t have time to redeem them.

    Cons

    Contingent employment through a staffing agency. They ended the contract two months in advance the original date two days before they new end of contract date. No reason at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop damaging careers with no explanation of what to expect. Most of the coworkers started through contingent employment, you need to provide measurable goals and expectations and provide structure to the Sales team.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Telemundo are the people. I truly enjoyed and respected every one of my co-workers.

    Cons

    The only downside of working at Telemundo is that they are very top heavy with executive/management positions. Sometimes when there are too many chiefs and not enough indians, communication goes by the wayside.

    I worked at Telemundo Communications part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best experience an intern could ask for! The Telemundo marketing team in LA made interns very involved with all the projects. We were also given extra tasks to get the most out of our internship. Supervisors were always very helpful, approachable and willing to give advice. Feedback was always very helpful as well.

    Cons

    Did not find any cons.

    I worked at Telemundo Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not much to do, working for uneducated immigrants is not any huge amount of work. For some people things are different. The suits make it look like they are winning battles though...a lot of pretending will carry you a long way.

    Cons

    They don't like anything or anybody who is not mexican. They are not creative in the least, aiming to entertain to the lowest denominator by flashing them with semi-naked latinas, no growth in the company unless you want to please the new female bosses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize you would never make it in any market unless people weren't so stupid. At least Try to pretend to be creative.

    Pros

    The best thing about working in Telemundo 48 is the people you work with. Most people are Hispanic, so it is a different atmosphere compare to other places I've worked at. You get a lot of free tickets for events and concerts. You also get to meet Hispanic TV personalities.

    Cons

    Limited resource. Low wages. excessive work load compared to general market local TV stations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on people and not the numbers.
