    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time

    Pros

    Management is engaged and supportive.

    Cons

    Senior management interferes with management on a consistent basis and should allow management to actually manage to form a solid team with being unique instead of a carbon copy.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should be thoroughly engaged with management and employees in regards to decisions made to strengthen team and what weakens the team. Multiple instances of requesting advice and opinions are being ignored, resulting weakening teams within the operation and causing a delay in reaching goals by hiring unqualified candidates that do not make bare minimum requirements.

    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time

    Pros

    Everyone has a very laid back type of work mentality which can be nice. If you're cool with the main clicks, than working here is a breeze.

    Cons

    The laid back type of work mentality can also be a con as there is a major lack of leadership. No position to grow into and they'd rather spend money on new hires than invest in the current employee's there who want to learn and grow and stay with the company.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better leadership, communication and delegating from the top down. Missing heavily here. Remove the clicks too. This is a job not high school.

  6. "Post Production Assistant"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time

    Pros

    Many meals are paid for--always lunch & more often than not dinner & you can grocery shop for the job in such a way that you have breakfast at the office too. You save a ton of money on food. They also pay for transportation (unlimited metro card, rental car, etc.). It's also obviously cool to be part of the environment.

    Cons

    The hours. Most PA jobs are 12 hours a day, and this one guaranteed 60 hours a week so it was nearly impossible to make overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your PAs better for their hard work.
