Great work environment

Management is understandable. Team projects are a blast. Work life balance is manageable and not too stressful depending on deliverables for the week.

Pros

Remote

I started at the very beginning of the pandemic and NBC was amazing at helping me set up remotely. I’ve yet to step into the office so speaking from remote it was a good job with great benefits.

Pros

Benefits, remote work

Your UO experience will vary on your personal goals.

UO is a great place for out-of-college grads, it is not an easy place to be if you have any actual experience in any other industry. The culture is concrete and poor to adapt to change. Historically bad business practices and coveted and protected. Long-term upper divisional management interpersonal relationships create very poor and hostile working conditions. Fraud and poor business practices are protected activities. NBCU largely protects and covers for these actions to avoid the legal consequences of guest PI and shareholder compliance reporting issues.

Pros

Free stuff, perks

Cons

Poor pay, very difficult working environments.

Complete lack of work/life balance and poor pay

Long work days for very little pay. Limited upward mobility. Promotions are very hard to come by. There can be perks to working here, but they don't outweigh the cons.

Fun place to work

It can be a fun place to work, just network with the right people and try to stay out of drama. Choose your department wisely because that will make all of the difference

Productive

No better place to work and feel happy about it. If you want greatness, you'll get it here but only if your determined and motivated. Universal is like a family that promotes from within.

Toxic work environment. Workers treated little cattle. Sick days are provided but frowned upon if used

A very toxic environment. On several occasions I was asked to do things that were not legal. Failure to do these things were often met with reprisals. No chance for advancement unless you left the company to work somewhere else and then returned in the future to a better position.

Pros

Standard Healthcare

Cons

Sick days taken were frowned upon

Meh

Great benefits but low pay and no room to grow. I'll have to leave the company to move up in the industry. I think there is great culture and I would love to stay if there was a promotion and better pay.

If you like "hurry up and wait" this is for you

Good part-time job. A lotta down time between scenes so I managed to read a few novels and stuff while I waited. Some days can be 12 hours and outside in the elements, but you still get to warm up indoors between setups. Other days you can work for 4 hours, but get paid for 8! The food is great and they feed you all meals if you work all day, plus craft services is there if you need a snack. If you become "Core" background you can work full-time, however compensation might not be enough. If you aren't core your work is entirely based on if you get accepted for casting calls, so be aware of that. I've worked for a week straight to then not have any work for two weeks. I did it mostly as supplemental income and I wanted to be on TV, so it worked out for my situation.

Great Place to work!

NBCUniversal is a great place to work. The company is huge so there is alot of opportunities to move up or move around. It is very fast paced so you've got to be willing to work hard to move ahead. It was definitely a good work experience.

Pros

good benefits, challenging work

Cons

constant change and re-organization

Office Politics at it's finest...

Not much to say other than that office politics run this organization...Hard work isn't enough at this company. If they don't like you for whatever reason, you will have to work 4 times as hard to stay relevant.

Pros

Work Balance

Cons

Office politics
