    Pros

    Exciting place to work with lots of opportunities. Lots of interesting people, including celebrities and professional athletes. good pay.

    Cons

    depending on your boss unfair work hours, blackout dates for vacation and time off. contractors are treated much worse than employees and it has a very high school cliquey environment feel to it.

    Advice to Management

    Dont lie to employees, dont treat everyone like your smarter than they are, and pretending to care just a little bit will go a long way.

    I have been working at NBC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has improved over the past 5 years, with a higher quality of programming and stronger marketing and PR efforts. Executives have been brought in over the past 2 years that are significantly stronger than those they replaced.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get things done in a company as large as NBC, which is a huge issue when our competition is increasingly streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many teams in too many silos - a simplified leadership structure would be pay huge dividends.
