Innovative place to work
Data Protection Engineer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 22, 2019
NBC Universal was a good place to work. Agile work spaces were just implemented, allowing for a more collaborative environment. Opportunities were provided for telecommuting.

Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 19, 2019
As an intern in 2011, I was only working for college credit rather than being paid. Many days I didn't have real work to do but just busy work made up on the spot. If you're in search of a laid-back setting, this isn't it.

Union Busting Morons!
Senior Broadcast Engineer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 18, 2019
Not a company that cares for talent especially if your in a union. No respect for older seasoned talent. The more they make the less they want to pay!
Pros
In the heart of Manhattan
Cons
Too many to list....

Media Tech Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 12, 2019
Great company culture: the company cares about you as an individual and not simply your capacity as an employee. Abundant opportunities for growth, development, improvement, mentorship, upward mobility.

Back Stabbers. Nothing But Lies From The Start. Playing Favorites
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 11, 2019
Management would not know the truth if it bit them. They pick on petty nonsense while the person next to you commits major policy violations and if he's is their friend or "one of them" they will not even get a slap on the wrist. You can bust your behind thinking you are going to be treated well and you will get a 22 cent raise for your efforts. They make that seem like you are being treated well. Lot's of nepotism. If you are one of them you are golden. If not, hurry up and just get out of there. I would never work there again in any capacity.
They have created a culture of fear, intimidation and retaliation.
Pros
Nothing to speak of.
Cons

Fun relaxed environment
LEAD AND LEVEL 2 DESKTOP SUPPORT TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Universal City, CAFebruary 11, 2019
Where do I start? It was hard leaving NBC. My coworkers, the people and management were all great to work for and with. Benefits were top notch. Dress attire is casual so jeans, sneakers, t-shirts etc are all acceptable as long as you don't look like a bum. Management was not following you around, there wasn't any micromanagement, they allowed you to come in, do your work and be there for you if you needed assistance.
Pros
Benefits, no micromanagement, casual attire, gym access, good pay, annual raises, relaxed work environment
Cons
No free park access like Disney does.

Dealing with rude customers daily

Vice President, Retail Sales and Marketing (Former Employee) –  Universal City, CAFebruary 8, 2019
Universal was a fast paced and highly demanding company to work for. If you are looking to work for in the entertainment business just know that it is a good company with opportunity to grow. The entertainment industry is changing dramatically due to digital entertainment, which I find intriguing.

Admission Host (Former Employee) –  Universal City, CAFebruary 4, 2019
This job was the best. I met so many different people with different personalities and nationalities it was amazing and fun . I loved this job because of interacting with the guest was special. You can do so little and make someone’s day a lot better with a smile and a “hi, how are you doing?” Or “enjoy your day!”

The turnover rate is horrible..
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) –  Silver Spring, MDFebruary 3, 2019
If you're looking for a company that will pay well enough to provide for a family, show no favoritism, and abide my their job description posted... this is NOT the company for you! The security of your job is nonexistent and you are expendable to them. They feel that having decent health benefits makes up for the lack of pay and amount of work put on their agents.
Pros
Health Benefits
Cons
Agents with 8hr and 10hr shifts have the same breaks lengths

Unfair hiring practice
None yet (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJanuary 31, 2019
I don’t understand how these companies are able to say bilingual only that is so unfair . That is basically stating they want to hire someone that is Spanish. Yes there are black and white people that may speak soanish but it is rare. These companies are not enforcing English as the first language.

Attractions Attendant (Current Employee) –  OrlaJanuary 30, 2019
Upper Management at this company has always been and will remain a joke for all time. The overall lack of communication and efficiency can be best seen in their construction habits.
Pros
Free entry into all parks
Cons
You have to deal with security at all parks
