    Pros

    Its great to have NBCU on your resume. They have great benefits packages (especially pension if you stay long enough to get vested). There are also cool perks like being able to get close up to the concerts in the morning if you know the right people.

    Cons

    You tend to be a cog in the wheel here. Everyone-including VPs/SVPs-complains about having to work so much, yet the culture that they instigate themselves is work first, family second. Most people felt guilty taking an hour off in the morning to go to a doctor's appointment. It was also very hard to maintain a positive attitude with everyone complaining about the amount of work and criticizing coworkers behind their backs.

    Advice to Management

    Culture comes from the top. If you want employees to be happy with their jobs, you should start by at least pretending you are happy with your job.


  2. "Training ground- hard work, learned alot, a very underpaid. If you can work here, you can make it anywhere"

    Pros

    When it was GE owned company, there were a lot of learning & development opportunties. Also, everyone else that was manager and below were working just as hard as you were- so you had a good team around you.

    Cons

    Lack of salary, opportunties of advancement were given to external GE employees and not to internal NBC employees, extremely high volume of work and lack of support

    Advice to Management

    Nees to make sure that the more junior members of the team are well supported, or they will leave due to volume issues.
