An interesting place to be
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 18, 2018
There is a lot of opportunity for NBC, but it's also very big and old. Making change is hard and its future always felt shaky. Most of the people are nice though.

Tough to start out
DESK ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 9, 2018
Not an easy place for a first job. The new employees get pretty taken advantage of salary/compensation/benefit wise. Coming out of college it takes about 3 years before you can get health care or a living wage.

Exciting Job in The Tough News Environment
Media Desk Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 15, 2017
A great time and place to be working in news, but the hours and work at NBC is tough and demanding. It can be rewarding and also discouraging. I recommend starting out working as a Media Desk Associate but it's tough to advance at NBC News.
Pros
Free Food, Fun Atmosphere, Exciting Days
Cons
Hard to Advance, Tough Hours, Bad Work/Life Balance

Great national news shop doing important stories for the most part.
Segment Producer, Video Tape Editor, Avid Editor (Former Employee) –  Burbank, CAJuly 7, 2017
The national television news business is very intense as was NBC News. I worked for all the shows including Nightly News, The Today Show, Dateline, CNBC and national TV specials. I received a Primetime Breaking News Emmy for a Dateline story here.

The hardest part of working at NBC was the long hours with zero ability to predict when one would have time off.
Pros
Received a Primetime Emmy award.
Cons
Union cost compared with benefits were not a very good deal.

Great Colleagues, Tough Management
COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER/REPORTER (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAFebruary 8, 2017
The people at KNBC are fantastic. They have a very family-like atmosphere which allows for people to feel wanted and appreciated. It can be tough to have any forward movement there mainly because there is a very low turnover rate. If you take a job there make sure you have a clear idea of what your path looks like and if this place will help you meet your end all goal.

Long hours

Serious environment
Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 31, 2017
NBC News certainly gave me one of the most serious intern experiences I've ever had. The employees at this company are very dedicated to their work, and aim to stay focused on that. Not exactly a fun environment, but a great leg-up to learn important skills.

Working with people at the top of their game meant we could do incredible things as a logistical team.
Satellite and Logistics Producer (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCDecember 22, 2016
Excellent management created a culture where all gave they're input and the best plans moved forward. I was given (and earned) a lot of autonomy in my job because I was trusted to achieve. I left to enter academia; if I hadn't I'd still be there and glad to be part of that team.
Pros
Excellent management and an appreciation for creative solutions
Cons
Upward mobility highly limited
