HR Manager - Field & Production (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 23, 2015
Pros: Benfits, fair pay
Cons: Poor leadership
In my experience, NBC is a great company, however if you are one who is looking to grow and have autonomy in your role this is not the job for you. All I can say is micro-management to its best

Post - Production, QC Screener (Current Employee), Englewood Cliffs, NJAugust 20, 2015
Pros: Office environment, comfortable
Cons: lots of favoritism, no room to move up.
Working at NBC was calm and professional. After a few months I noticed that there was no room to grow. The driving distance was my only concern on cost and wear and tear on my vehicle.

Harder than it had to be
Dishwasher/stock (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 16, 2015
Pros: free lunch, ample breaks
Cons: long route to job
I loved working here, the atmosphere of a theme park is always uplifting, Unfortunately I was trying to juggle school and 30 hours of week at work on top of a 3 hour commute due to not having a car. Everything came tumbling down and shortly after a friend of mine passed. I called off work to attend a fundraiser for the funeral and because it was the last of my attendance points and the reason wasn't deemed excusable I was terminated.

I had loads of fun at Universal, but it was because I made my interactions with people fun. The job itself is boring, so it is what you make it.

Sales Planner (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 4, 2015
Pros: Taking clients to fun events.
Cons: none.
My work day consist of creating and organizing upfront and scatter plans for the NBCUniversal cable networks, Oxygen and Sprout. I learned to maximize the use of inventory while maintaining client requests and restrictions. Management is supportive while also enforcing challenging tasks to improve work ethic. My co-workers are extremely supportive and helpful. There is a great sense of teamwork in our department. The hardest part of the job is negotiating deals with limited inventory. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the marketing team to come up with creative custom sponsorships.

It all depends on where you work
Cook, Line Production (Current Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 2, 2015
Pros: Food service gets $3 voucher towards a meal. Quarterly ticket distribution for family and friends.
Cons: Long hours or double shifts for some people especially in City walk.
Working in the Parks is more fun.
I worked in City Walk - restaurants, clubs, fast food and retail.
Its a sound business. Some management is awesome and some I could care less for. Co-workers are what could make or break your day. ALTHOUGH I believe Universal hires more people on the average that are positive and hard working. They hire them more than the people we would consider who aren't.
Advancement may take 6-12 months if you push for it.
The job is not hard but there can be pressures if short staffed (food service). The most enjoyable part of my day is/was working with my co-workers and speaking with guests. I dropped down to a variable position because I drive a very long distance to work there.

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.
