Server, Bartender (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 16, 2018
It has it pros and cons. I like meeting new people from all over the world. Yet, I've worked there a long time, longer than most the people unit but my status doesn't change.
Pros
Free Lunch for Food and Beverage staff
Cons
There are too many

Sports Philadelphia Live Event Production Intern (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 15, 2018
Great place to intern. I loved every second there. Would love to be apart of the team full time, but there just was not an opening. I would recommend it to anyone who can work there.

Life at Universal
Partnerships Marketing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Universal City, CAFebruary 14, 2018
Where do I start. The leadership and recruiting team is awful at Universal. No one wants to help you move up in the company. Your best bet is to leave the company and come back at a higher position.

kind of a mess
show creator (Former Employee) –  Universal City, CAFebruary 12, 2018
Network and studio on completely different pages. Don't really know what they want to be when they grow up. I feel for them, because TV is always hard. But still a tough place to succeed.

Decent Place to Work but Hours are bad
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 12, 2018
Not a bad place to work, hours are pretty terrible. Management is overall pretty strong but they make some questions decisions on leadership at times.

They win no matter what
Business Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Big South, GeorgiaFebruary 11, 2018
Senior management treats you poorly and runs you through the grinder.
No work life balance.
Your job is always in jeopardy.
The company could care less how they acquire new business.
The call center competes against you.
All direct mail, radio and TV advertising goes against the territory rep.
If a customer makes a mistake and calls the 800# looking for you, the call center takes it.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
poor pay, meat grinder mentality, could care less about employees.

Opportunity to grow within Employee Resource Groups
Coordinator (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 11, 2018
Constant change. ERGs allow networking, skill growth, making friends and valuable contacts. Mgmt changes frequently and so does office climate. You get to work very hard.

My best job so far
Account Executive/Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 8, 2018
NBCU was an incredible place to work. The culture there was collaborative. Management did an excellent job of communicating to and motivating the sales team. People cared about each other on a career and personal level. The benefits that NBCU gave its employees were stellar. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to the fact that NBCU is a highly matrix organization so sometimes it was difficult to get things done because there were so many layers of approvals, The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. Everyone that I worked with at NBCU was incredibly talented, hard working and kind.
Pros
Culture
Cons
Little room for advancement

Associate Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 7, 2018
Good company to work for but not a very collaborative environment. Great benefits! If you put in your time great amount of time off. Some perks such as movie screening!

Avoid this place unless you enjoy never advancing
Preditor (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTFebruary 6, 2018
I’ve worked at several networks, sports leagues and production houses. This place was hands down the worst place of them all. Even the start up companies that went out of business. There is virtually no chance for advancement; managers talk down to you; everyone is miserable; and it’s a revolving door because of the people that quit and get fired. Never been happier to leave a company than NBC Sports.
Pros
High profile sports properties
Cons
Everything else

Merchandise Consultant (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 4, 2018
It was a good experience. They were good about scheduling taking consideration about personal needs. They treated employees fairly. I was happy working there and would like to again. They gave adequate breaks and made sure the employees took them.

Worst place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Telemundo studiosFebruary 3, 2018
If you are willing to go to bed with your supervisor, then you are in the right place, if not, forget about a promotion. People feel unmotivated. I don't recommend anybody to work here.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
More than 80hrs/ week, lots of supervisor that has no idea of tv or how does the industry should be, forget about seeing your family again, rate per hour

Relaxed work place with great co-workers.
Motion Graphics Designer (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJanuary 31, 2018
A typical day at work starts around 9AM checking to see what job tickets are assigned to me. It's pretty straight forward system that keeps your to-do tasks organized. Great co-workers! And casual atmosphere. However they only allow contract work so there is no move into full-time work. Everyone leaves before 6PM so it's great to have a life after work.
Pros
Relaxed atmosphere, 8 hour day, Great co-workers
Cons
No move to full-time, no benefits, no pay raise

Universal Studios is a brand that is indelible at every point in production in Los Angeles and New York. Words can't capture the magic of the Studio family.
