    I worked at USA Network as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great internal programs for training/learning about other departments/and just overall information or updates on NBC Universal as a whole. Everyone really seems like they are happy to be working there.

    Cons

    Cubicles, a lot of independent work. Although everyone talks to one another you spend most of your time at your cubicle working independently.

    I have been working at USA Network part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great opportunity to network with people within the industry.

    Cons

    Corporate environment makes it difficult to advance without going through HR.

    I worked at USA Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee perks (especially at 30 Rock) like free lunches/events and celebrity meet and greets, special treatment if you're on the right people's good side, working at #1 (household) rated cable channel and NBCU's highest grossing network.

    Cons

    Politics (but what workplace doesn't have that?), little access to upper management, strict policies, little appreciation depending on what department you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and less precious with information (ie. ratings), take more creative chances, care about EVERYONE at every position and level.

    I have been working at USA Network (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, coworkers, the prestige of walking into NBC

    Cons

    No bonuses under VP level. Raises for under Director level are 2.3-3% yearly. Needs clean slate of execs from dev to mktg.

    Advice to Management

    Share in the $1 billion profit you claim to garner every year and reward the employees that make USA #1 for almost a decade. Show us the money rather than year after year taking away our iTunes xmas gift card, Jcrew summer gift card, end of summer nosh and nibbles thanking us for another successful summer of show launches.
