    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern

    Pros

    My experience at NBCUniversal was as an intern on one of their hit shows. The position was very hands on and I got exposed to everything from pitch sessions to shoots. It was an overall great resume-building opportunity.

    Cons

    Larger career-building opportunities are hard to come by.

    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hands on experience available. Friendly co-workers. Great location. Working overtime was not advised at all. PAGE co-workers were amazing.

    Cons

    Supervisor was not helpful/beneficial at all. There were days with a lot of down time. Supervisor line of communication non-exist therefore hard to get a job in the future.

    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time

    Pros

    NBC Universal is a great place to learn your craft. The people are great. Many of the departments work as teams and help each other.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the corporate culture of Comcast is not as warm and fuzzy as they say they want to be. They have a strange Human Resources department.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if they spoke to middle management and lower levels to see where the work needs to be done.

    Pros

    Enjoyed my time at NBCU. Great learning environment and immediate management was thoughtful and at times utilized resources extremely well, giving way to opportunities.

    Cons

    A bit too closed off from certain teams with a mandate not to work with them. I wish there had been more free flowing communication.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people a bit more and communicate company vision through the ranks.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are awesome, and it has a start up feel. The content is funny. The work is great and everyone's ideas are valued.

    Cons

    Having to be subject to the Comcast bureaucracy above inhibited the growth of the business and slowed down vital projects for the stability of the O and O's.

    Advice to Management

    To upper upper NBCU/Comcast management not Seeso (who are all great managers/execs): if you are serious about entering the SVOD game, you have to invest in the product. Content is king, but people will leave if they can't watch it easily.

    Pros

    Great company, full benefits, wonderful supervisor, base salary and commission

    Cons

    This is the highest position you can get within this category with Universal Studios, but it is wonderful to be in the NBC family and can easily look in alternative occupations within the company
