Great coworkers and perks, but terrible management
Software Engineer (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 10, 2013
Pros: summer fridays, great parties, flexible hours
Cons: new features are recklessly planned just to make managers look good
Depending on where you're at in life, working at NBC can be a great opportunity. There is generally nothing too challenging about building media software since it mostly involves handling meta data and pushing large video files to different vendors. As a result, completing the work can be accomplished quickly while you do more interesting side projects. – more... Fellow engineers generally feel the same way and try to make the working for the technology group a fun and relaxing experience.

Unfortunately the management isn't very good. Most of the directors don't deserve their positions; they only got them because they were really friendly with the VP before the Comcast and NBC merger. They aren't good at managing people and only think about advancing their careers and completely ignore yours. If you don't mind hitting a ceiling, this place is for you. – less

This job listing is a combination of working in independent film industry. I worked in New York City and Vancouver over a 15 year period. Typically working in film and television are 14-16 hour days with constant work in an extremely stressful environment.

Working in the production office you must deal with all types of of situations and be able to – more... improvise many solutions.
Typically my co-workers were great people. Since we worked extremely long days we usually succeeded in making the days spent in the office pleasant. – less

Superintendent (Former Employee), Hollywood, CAJuly 9, 2014
Pros: there were free lunches in the lunchroom with all the actors, directors and producers.
Cons: breaks were whenever i had a free moment, which was rare, but time passed quickly.
Universal Studios was a typical movie and TV workplace that gave me autonomy throughout the property. I was responsible for renovations and new constructions of all executive and office workers building. The education of such a workplace was and experience I will never forget. It included sets from all Universal movies and the inner workings of such – more... as well as some of the older western sets and the way the settlers lived and died. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see how movies were made both on the sets and the sound stages, where most of the scenes were shot. I think the hardest part was taking all of the aura in and remembering how they were put together. – less
