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

    Pros

    You will get the benefits and perks from NBC Universal

    Cons

    They are not close to act or be like NBC, HR department is really bad in all the levels, In 4 Years I saw a lot of people laid off. Also employees will get move to other departments or duplicate their job functions without any type of salary adjustment or job description review from HR, upper levels are aware of this but wont do anything, good performance recognition is minimum and employees are very demotivated.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to work closely with other HR departments of NBC maybe they will learn to be more people oriented and to follow the right procedures to help employees feel protected.

    I worked at Telemundo for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company with amazing benefits under NBCUniversal culture. Also, owned by Comcast which allows employees to get some of their benefits as well . Company umbrella is huge for a cable and media company.

    Cons

    Internal advancement might be a challenge and employee management can be improved. The industry is going through a mayor shift in product consumption which may be considered as difficult times and unstable business environment .

    Advice to Management

    Address employee motivations, workload and work-life balance.

    I have been working at Telemundo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exciting broadcast industry with productions happening on site. Connection with NBC is exciting and fulfilling. NBC culture is accepting and supportive.

    Cons

    Telemundo culture is old fashioned and change is slow. It is acceptable to take credit for other people's work and treat people without respect. Extremely toxic. Although NBC preaches an atmosphere supporting ability to report abuses, good luck getting anyone to listen to you.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Extend NBC culture to Telemundo and ensure that all employees are listened to and respected. Do what it takes to eliminate the toxicity.
