    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was part of NBC Universal Diversity Fellowship Program.

    1. Very through.
    2. Wonderful overall experience.
    3. Will have a detail idea about how a major television production works.
    4. It's paid where hardly any internship are and you get to have awesome food.
    5. When it's on your resume, people call you up for interviews.
    6. Great opportunity and foot on the door for people from diversified background.

    Cons

    I had a great experience and no complains at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Please provide more opportunities like this more not just your television shows but also for your movies.
    2. Also if there can a job prospect for future based on the internship to NBC universal, that would be perfect.

    Pros

    Excellent culture based on passion for the industry and product.
    Terrific people.

    Cons

    Executive level management in the U.S very slow to change and adapt.
    Siloed organization with seemingly no desire to work together across divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace change! Stop doing what has always been done and allow your employees the room to help you grow.
    This is supposed to be a creative business. Let some creativity creep into the organizational architecture.
    Same people doing same things = same results.

    I worked at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    Exceptional culture, great support from management, opportunities for professional development only limited by individual's desire for growth. "Fun Product" makes coming in to work an enjoyable experience.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, home entertainment products are in a steady consumer decline. This is an industry whose days are numbered due to digital delivery and the death of rentailers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are still several cost saving opportunities available if you take the initiative to breakdown "siloed" structure in U.S. and reduce redundant and underperforming individuals.

    Pros

    Its NBC enough said. Between all the perks of working at the company you really feel like you belong there and become loyal to the organization. They do have a great training program for newbies and everyone really belongs in the culture which helps.

    Cons

    Very corporate. I wish they would relax a bit it would really help the creative juices. Also in my division advancement was no existent which was frustrating because many of us worked there for years without any merit increases which became a problem after a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees to try new things to help them advance within the organization.

    I worked at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    Pros include internal mobility and career growth, a strong leadership team, investment in talent and in the business and most of all, the opportunity to work with smart, creative, passionate people.

    Cons

    Work-life balance doesn't exist in many areas of the company but such is the case with most companies that are fast-paced, progressive and at the top of their game.

    I worked at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    The People were great, I like the company culture, and there were many opportunities for growth. I especially liked that my manager encouraged me to conduct informational interviews with managers and employees in various departments.

    Cons

    The way was not very great, especially for living in New York City. Being on hourly there were opportunities for overtime, however I would have had to work a lot of overtime just to be able to afford rent and living costs.
