Great Perks & Benefits but Frequent Changes in Management
Executive Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Exposure to celebrities, generous benefits package
Cons: Frequent changes in management, no opportunities for growth for administrative personnel
It's a stable company with fun perks and benefits. You're at an advantage if you have completed the Page Program.
If you are in an administrative position it is difficult to work your way up the corporate ladder. Frequent changes in management can be unsettling.

If you've ever been an extra then you know what its like
Freelance Actor (Former Employee), Bosotn, MAJuly 24, 2015
Pros: good times. good people. good food.
Cons: lousy pay (expected) and you have no control of weather
You get free lunches. You get to play "dress up" and meet lots of fun people. The one that sucks is the weather; if its cold you dress very warm. If it's hot then bring a couple loose fitting clothes.

Payroll Accountant (Current Employee), Universal City, CAJuly 23, 2015
I've learned a lot during my time doing payroll at NBC/Universal and now it's time to go back to what I love the most which is Accounts Receivable/payables. I would like to find a stable job and not freelance as a payroll accountant.

Management isn't the best
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJuly 17, 2015
Pros: Getting into the Parks for free
Cons: Management
Management isn't the best! They are all mean and does not respect the employees! It was a pretty okay experience you met people from all over the world. If you're a people person then this would be a great job for you.

Fun job depending on the weather
Street Team Member- Marketing (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Networking opportunities
Cons: poor hours
A typical day at work would be to set up equipment like tent, table, promotional gifts, promote station by talking to people and/or put on the peacock costume for the kids. I learned how to be more personable. Management was simple, it was basically go out in teams and tell the public about NBC. My co-workers were communication or journalist trying to break into the industry. The hardest part of my job was the peacock costume, the most enjoyable part of my job was meeting and greeting so many people.

Always advancing and moving
First Cook (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJuly 14, 2015
Pros: Free Lunch, on site doctors office
Cons: too many people in charge of same employees that they contradict their plans for restaurants.
With Universal, there was always something new going on with new restaurants opening, and new rides and theme parks. I enjoyed working at some of the many restaurants they had. I was able to advance fast in the 3yrs there. I learned how to use their ordering system Eatec, and was part of the safety committee for the Universal Park.

Fun and Challenging Work Environment
Field Service Analyst (Current Employee), Orlando. FLJuly 11, 2015
Pros: Great place to learn, friendly atmosphere, lots to do
Cons: Some workers do not necessarily perform the job to standard
Throughout any given day I may be called upon to identify, troubleshoot, deploy or install any IT asset that Universal Studios operates. These range from desktop, laptops, tablets, RFID equipment, Biometrics, Switches, Routers and Kronos time clocks. I work well with others and I am 100% capable of working alone with no supervision. Since I was hired I have learned a tremendous amount about how an organization suffers from IT related outages and I have learned reliable and sufficient methods to ensure that downtime is kept to a minimum. The hardest part of the job is going home at the end of the day. There is just so much that you want to do to make things better but there is just not enough time in your shift to get all of the work done. I do not like leaving my co-workers dealing with issues that I know I can assist with.

Best days are behind it.
Stage Manager / Broadcast Engineer (Former Employee), Burbank, CAJuly 8, 2015
Pros: Fun people, fun work
Cons: Hard to advance. Unions don't do much for employees
NBC has changed ownership. There are less jobs and security. The management is for the most part fair, but I've seen many changes both good and bad. It's not what it used to be since Comcast bought it. Overall it is a fun place to work with mediocre pay and benefits.
