Cons

unpaid internship, occasionally tedious work

Advice to Management

Pay interns (I think they do now...)

    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, Comcast is shaking things up (trust me, they need it), opportunity to work on some of the best products and brands in the business, looks great on the resume

    Cons

    Poor communication across NBC division, four main groups (entertainment, sports, news and affils) operate like little fiefdoms making it difficult to get things done, incompetent HR department, little to no manager training, pockets of innovation but the organization sometimes seems very stuck in its ways and fear of failure among the employees contributes directly to lack of innovative thinking. Dingy building (30 Rock) and old equipment.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot over communicate to your employees. Get the managers some training, stat, and blow up your HR department. Do a better job of creating an environment where risk taking is okay.

    Pros

    I was luckily enough to work with other departments to really get a sense of company culture and experience.

    Cons

    Too many internal politics. In order to get promoted, most often you had to play favorites with your manager and vp. Even if you do good, you're often looked over and an inexperienced person will be promoted over you.
