I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Working for a large company that has good benefits. Met some really great people. Good salary. Chance to work on larger projects and easy enough to network.

Cons

Organizational structure is a mess. Lack of clear focus, and project management is lacking. Every division is a silo so it is hard to get everyone on board with the same agenda.

Advice to Management

Work on communication and management processes. Divisions are too segregated and need to be more integrated.
