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

Pros

I was only an intern but I genuinely loved working at NBC. Overall it was a great company and I really learned a lot about myself and what I want to pursue as a career. I was in NBC Sports so I don't know if this is for everywhere but in my department they offered meet and greets with executives from all sorts of departments so you could hear how they got where they are. This was how I decided I want to go to law school and I wouldn't have known that without their help!

Cons

I do wish I got to do more hands-on projects... but at the same time I wouldn't have learned the industry as well without the "mundane" tasks I was assigned. I only sat in on one phone call and it would have been better to have been able to sit in on more meetings or conferences.

Advice to Management

Allow interns into more aspects of day to day tasks. Shadow days maybe?

    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.
