Excellent introduction to customer service
Ride Attendant (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 23, 2015
Pros: benefits. work environment. camaraderie.
Cons: parking. job accessibility.
Providing customer service in a fun family friendly environment was the name of the game at NBC Universal. Working in a themed setting was a great introduction for me as a customer service specialist because it allowed me to interact with our guests in a laid back yet professional way. The massive volume of guests in the park allowed me to learn how to be thorough yet efficient in my dealings with each person in the park. There was quite a bit of variance with my co workers mainly because a lot of them were college age and were only employed as seasonal employees. That being said, most were pleasant to be around and helped promote a cooperative fun workplace. The biggest challenge presented to me at NBC Universal was always during "down times" created by technical difficulties with our attractions. Turning those "down times" into positive experiences for our guests was our culture and wound up being something that I personally excelled at. My absolute favorite part of my experience with NBC Universal was the gratification of exceeding guest expectations and breaking attendance records measured in hourly quantities.

Media Specialist with Experience
Account Manager (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVMarch 11, 2015
Pros: branding
Cons: managmeent
great company to work for if you are within the corporate structure and not a salelite office.
their sale compensation is based on your salary and not the revenue that you bring in so it's great for the company and not the sales person.
it's very on air host friendly and not sales friends,

the most enjoyable part of the business is that the other sales reps where going through the same struggle so they bonded with you.

Universal Theme Parks
Attractions Operations Attendant (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 11, 2015
Pros: affordable cafeteria food
Cons: low hour work days
Working here was a lot of fun. I learned step by step process on opening a new attraction and land during my time here. Co workers were friendly, but with everything not everyone is enjoyable to work with. Guests are always expecting more and feel that they have to rush to get everything finished instead of just enjoying themselves. Overall its a great place to work temporary while trying to find something that pays better.

NBC Universal / Golf Channel
Senior Director of Technology (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 4, 2015
While I loved what I did on a day to day basis, Golf Channel underwent a lot of changes while I was there, including change of ownership twice, three physical moves, and three different presidents. Each new regime restructured the company in their own fashion and as such there was a lot of shuffling/letting go/hiring of employees. When I left, I was not confident that things were not going to change again, which left a lot of projects in limbo, and people with worry.

All that said, the people we hired were great - we took pride in building our teams with the right people. We got to play with new technologies and were largely left to our own devices when it came to the "how" of a project. (There were, of course, corporate mandated systems we were required to use.)

Overall the company treated us very well, the work was interesting, and the people were fantastic. The day-to-day was great. The hardest part of the job was dealing with management who wouldn't make decisions because of the uncertainty in the corporate structure, and was ultimately the cause of my departure.

You learn a lot working for Martha
Segment Producer (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: free food
Cons: difficult talent
Martha Stewart is a consummate perfectionist and expects it of her staff. We have to perfect even the most minute details because she will definitely notice. But Martha is a teacher at heart and loves to help people learn. So there's always something to be gained because Martha pretty much knows everything about everything and since the heart of her productions is how-to, the staff takes away as much as the audience.

Senior Press Manager (Current Employee), Universal City Plaza, Universal City CAFebruary 20, 2015
Cover unscripted and scripted shows on a daily basis. Work closely with the marketing, digital, social on air, promo and custom content teams to help produce the best show possible. Communication is key and having to multitask on both unscripted and scripted is an amazing experience. It's great to have both studio and network experience in my back pocket.
