    I have been working at NBCUniversal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    HR is constantly looking for ways to involve all employees in a community setting. The managers I've worked with are great and the people are friendly, overall. Retention rate is high and constant.

    Cons

    The work is constant and there's not too much time to take breathers, at least in the department I work for. Everything is fast-paced. On the flip side of that, the day goes by quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to hire more people to lessen the workload.

    Pros

    great benefits, pay tends to be on the high side, great co-workers, unique and entertaining industry. Never a dull day.

    Cons

    Tough business, especially the local stations. Competitive environment. Not for the thin-skinned, timid or sensitive. Management can be a revolving door, so know how to adapt to new leaders or you could go out with the tide. At the local level, not unusual for complete VP turnover when new management comes in.
