    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits for employees and their families.

    Cons

    There's a lot of corporate tape and sometimes people who should get in trouble don't. Also, great talent leaves often because of lack of opportunity. Great talent is also let go too easily.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brand recognition & Good show development

    Cons

    No room to grow within the company. Clear proof of favoritism and office politics. Even when you work hard, there's no recognition from a simple "thank you" to a bonus to a promotion. Nothing whatsoever. Poor attitudes within a team and no effort to build a bond. They expect you to put in overtime hours, fire a bunch of people then pile you with more work so they overload you with work but underpay you.

    Pros

    Love working within the NBCU family. The benefits are great and the work culture is inclusive.

    Things move rather swiftly and leadership has the tendency to remain inconsistent. Working your way up in terms of career growth can be difficult too.
