    I have been working at NBCUniversal as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everything. Great teams, flexible hours, awesome work environment. I've spent 2 semesters as an intern and I am the only intern so I am not competing with anyone specifically and the team gives all of the attention to me. Great connections and you get to work with people at very high levels at the company. Barely even an internship because they treat you just like a full-time employee and make sure you are learning what you need to learn.

    Cons

    The ONLY downside is that I haven't been given any free NBC apparel from the internship program! (But my boss has given me stuff)

    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern

    Pros

    The entire community of upper management was very happy to share their knowledge and interest with me as an intern. I was given every opportunity to learn and explore, and was introduced to so much learning and personal development.

    Cons

    The only thing I wish could be different about the program is that the hiring process could take place a bit earlier, and there could be housing options coordinated/provided for interns. But all in all, not much to complain about!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing with the intern program, because it is phenomenal.
