    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really good benefit package. And a lot of good colleagues.

    Cons

    Company is way too bureaucratic. It takes forever to get a decision made. Things get bogged down.

    Advice to Management

    Let the managers hire and promote people and stop letting HR run everything.

    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A really great place to work. The people are very kind, smart and passionate about their jobs and each other. I worked in a department where we had a family vibe. Benefits are good with health, dental and matching 401k. There's opportunities for growth and they spend money on their people. Lots of fun events and celebrations.

    Cons

    There's some politics. People can be very title happy allowing that to get in the way of playing nicely. I worked in a group of about 70 people and was the only African American on the team. They could work on diversifying a little. Seemed like people got roles based on who they knew or who's kid they were.
