    Former Employee - Vice President, Marketing in Toronto, ON

    I worked at NBCUniversal full-time for 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.

    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.
