    Overall great place

    Mar 21, 2022 - Producer in New York, NY

    Pros

    I love their initiative to make the organization more diverse, the pay is great, you can be easily promoted if you know the right people, the colleagues and people are amazing, and lastly the benefits and 401k are great.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work around the clock with little notice, fill-in for different shows due to staffing issues, & be expected to do it again all without receiving extra compensation. Can be a stressful environment sometimes creating a poor work/life balance. No bonuses

    A pretty good company to work for

    Jul 3, 2022 - Booking Producer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Great benefits - Protection of a big company and a union - Feeling of being part of a company with a solid mission - Not a "family," which means it doesn't have the dysfunction of a company with no boundaries

    Cons

    - Very little information flow - Stated company goals on DEI fall flat in practice--not terrible, but not great - Feeling that cable is on its way out and no one knows what to do. Not unique to MSNBC.

    Great place to work!

    Mar 15, 2022 - Line Producer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people truly care about each other and know what they’re doing. The company seems to really care about the employees when it comes to resources for in and out of work, including mental health. Plus, working in 30 Rock is a dream!

    Cons

    Despite resources being available, working in news can still be difficult on your mental health. You don’t always have the best hours hours, which can be difficult on your personal life. However, that’s not exclusive to MSNBC.
