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

    Pros

    Some of the people are cool, some of the usual "working at a major network" perks. The good people stick together. You'll be ready to work at any other place after working here. My direct supervisor was pretty great, but unfortunately with the disorganization of the department, it wasn't enough.

    Cons

    It started off great, I was a valued member of the team, won awards, and contributed more than many, but when I left no one batted an eyelash. They're used to people leaving and so focus on other things instead of trying to figure out how to make the good ones want to stay.

    Low pay if you're even remotely near entry level. There's an attitude of "well, if you won't deal with this, we'll just find someone else who wants it more, even if they're not the best fit and you're brilliant." They expect very few people to do more and more. The people above don't really know how to do what the people below them do, so it's a lot of pressure. Very hard to take any days off, even though you more than earn them. Lots of feelings of being thrown under the bus by superiors for things that are not your fault (and sometimes an oversight of a superior). They won't always stand up for you if it means "ruffling the feathers" of their internal clients. Over the top corporate atmosphere. No one ever "remembers" how to do the annoying but necessary tasks and so they all fall on the one person who actually admits to having a memory. The saddest is having to schedule interviews for people you know won't get the job because a candidate is already picked out. However, you have to schedule them anyway so that they can hit a "diversity" quota, and that's pretty unfair to the interviewees.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider what it means to the rest of your employees when you keep paying the already highest paid people more and more while limiting the salaries and hourly rates/overtime of those below. They won't want to grow there and there will continue to be high turnover.
