    Not Bad But Could Be Better

    Oct 2, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Overall fairly nice place to work. You have a few bad apples here and there but overall everyone is pretty friendly - Good benefits and amenities? The lunchroom is pretty convenient and fairly affordable, healthcare and 401K are great

    Cons

    - They're cutting costs significantly and everyone else is suffering as a result - Not enough staffing all around so when one person calls out you can be called for short turnarounds, work a week straight or more, or work more than 12 hrs a day to cover shifts - They don't seem to promote much or give raises despite having very capable staff who might already be doing the job they're hiring someone else for - Its not easy to get jobs much less interviews in other departments of the company. It almost feels you'd have a better chance at a job if you weren't an NBC employee - Hiring managers/recruiters can be very elitist in selecting candidates. Most of the candidates I've seen come through in the past few years have been predominantly White with degrees from expensive colleges - There's a lot if subtle racism that goes unchecked and HR/managers will more quickly punish someone for reacting to it as opposed to correcting the behavior of the person perpetrating it

    This is based on my time with NBC Universal from 2002-2011. Everyone I worked with were true professionals and we always had a good work environment. Benefits and salary were very fair at the time.

    Cons

    Its a very big organization so when you need help with something corporate it can be quite challenging getting the right person to assist you.
