    I have been working at Universal Pictures full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The perks, the overall company culture, and people at the company are outstanding. It's a really fun and exciting place to work. The work/life balance is really good; hard to find any other major company (except perhaps other studios) where a lawyer works the extremely reasonable hours of mostly 9-6, and hardly ever on weekends.

    Cons

    Although the benefits and health insurance are great, the salaries are truly pitiful. It's also difficult to get promoted in the legal divisions as opposed to other divisions where promotions constantly seem to be happening.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries should be more competitive otherwise good people will keep going out the door, particularly to places like Netflix or FOX who pay considerably more.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Universal Pictures.

    Interview

    Phone interview then 2 in person. Some HR people are very knowledgeable and helpful and seem to care about both parties. Others are clueless and just want to fill a job no matter how wrong it may be for either party.
