    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (less than an 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.

    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Great Employer - Shrinking Industry

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON

    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.

    I worked at NBCUniversal

    Pros

    I have worked for other entertainment studios in the past, this one was by far the best. It is a large company, which makes you feel like you're part of something big, but there are so many different projects going on and so many jobs being done that you can really focus on the little things. The back lot is a lot of fun too.

    Cons

    Since it is a big studio, getting around is sometimes difficult. You better get a golf cart!

    Former Employee - New York Live in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was a summer intern for New York Live and had the best time. I learned SO much, the team was extremely kind and helpful and the other people I met at NBC were eager to help me gain as much experience as possible. I still keep in touch with my supervisor even though I moved across the country.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons. My supervisor was great as well as everyone involved on the show and everyone I encountered at the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Thank you :)
