Approves of CEO

I worked at NBC full-time

Pros

Smart people stay here forever until the HR decides that you are going to get a package. They have excellent benefits. Great people to work with and opportunities to grow if you are willing to stick out for a couple years.

Cons

People are let go without cause. This is a very stressful environment with a growing paranoia.

Advice to Management

Stop giving so much responsibility to interns.

    I worked at NBC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People at NBC Chicago are extremely friendly, work hard, and know their stuff.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't do the best job when it came to securing on-air talent. Sometimes caused extra work load and stress


  2. "A Silicon Valley media operation stuck in the past"

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    While an outpost, it is NBC, and you get some minor spillover from the company's connections with Hollywood. Conan O'Brien visited the station once.

    Cons

    The people are exceedingly average, with a few standouts, and the culture is stultifying. No one's interested in change or perspectives from outside the television industry.

    Advice to Management

    Make some startling moves and bring in flesh blood, including a general manager and news director who don't have a background in television.
