"Take advantage of your network. Some teams can be a little siloed and exposure to Senior Leadership can be limited. Use affinity groups to gain exposure to other teams and organizations. "

"Had a decent experience working here! Very average. No huge pros, no huge cons. Big company. Free cable and internet was nice."

"Stay away from the home entertainment side of the business. The cable networks and theatrical team are great to work for! Home entertainment is toxic."

"I worked at a nationally syndicated NBC owned and produced entertainment news show. After 8 months I found out that that my male counterpart - exact same job except he had 3 years less experience - was making $500/week more than me. I asked management about this and they didn't deny it. Their answer was that if I wanted more money I should have asked for it before taking the job land that I should be happy that I was getting all the best assignments. I found a better job and quit. "

"I've been employed at NBCUniversal for 5 years. What impresses me most is how they're constantly updating their policies and practices to be competitive. For example, they've extended maternity leave to 6 months and recently added more personal time off for parents dealing with COVID-related school closings. Two years ago, they launched a returnship program called Act Two to attract stay-at-home parents back into the workforce. Its seems like they truly want to be an environment that supports employees in all life situations."
"For me, NBCUniversal is an organization that fosters an environment where people are encouraged to be creative in their work. The buzz and energy is contagious. "
"I returned from maternity leave after the company had already moved to remote work due to COVID. The support I got from my manager, team and internal clients has been incredible, I haven't felt looked over for opportunities due to my child care constraints, and I've been given the flexibility to balance caring for my infant with getting my work done. I'm thrilled to be a working mom at NBCUniversal."

"Walking into the esteemed 30 Rock in New York for my interview, the first thing I noticed were murals on the walls with quotes about empowering women. I remember feeling so valued and admiring this company for taking time to acknowledge the amazing women that are able to lead it. "

"At NBCU, there exists a strong, family friendly culture, and a tight-knit community that transcends job categories and verticals."

"Often when working in television there are set hours for when you have to be in the studio, which doesn’t promote a lot of flexibility...."

"Working at NBCUniversal was a great experience, mostly, and I would work there again. However, I would advise everyone to really get to know the people you will report to before you accept a position.... My experience is that NBC tends to promote the worst, most toxic and most cutthroat people into management. If you can deal with that, great. But if you're looking for a "nice" place to work, this may not be right for you. "

"There are a lot of very strong, confident women in high leadership roles, but they don't seem like very happy people. "

"They have a variety of moderate benefits but not as flexible at the division I work for they have for other locations/business units."

"If you want a steady pace with family friendly hours, great benefits and lots of little perks (and if learning/developing/moving up is not your priority), this is a great place to work."

"Coming from another leading company in the media industry, it was refreshing to see how open NBC was--I feel like I can speak my mind and be supported, they have many different opportunities for learning, networking, expanding your skills, and they embrace diversity. From my experience in negotiating my salary, I still think the gender pay wage gap exists here though. While HR wasn't willing to expand upon whether or not NBC is working to close this, they worked with me so that I was satisfied with my final compensation package."

"Very women-heavy in entry- and mid-level positions but very male dominant at the top still. In my current role, my hourly pay rate is non-negotiable so I don't have to worry about being paid less than a man, but I am not sure how that changes once one becomes salaried and pay is up for negotiation. That said, many older women on my team have been very pleased with the paid maternity leave policy - several were on leave SIMULTANEOUSLY and their roles were temporarily backfilled and guaranteed upon their return, One was even promoted just before her leave, and barely had time to start her new role before taking the time off - great to see she was still promoted and that didn't influence the decision."

"The work-base was pretty evenly split male/female. Most bosses were male, but most Producers seemed evenly split. "

"Working in production at NBC can be family friendly but you have to be in specific, structured/shift roles. Otherwise, you can leave when your work is done or finish from home but you have to be in the office to do the majority of your work. Because its production it can be difficult to get time off for holidays."

"While working from home is a great flexible work option, there still seems to be a lack of work/life balance. It's not spoken, but working beyond 9-5 is very much expected regardless of your family situation. "
"My mother always used to say, "You don't ask, you don't get", and I think it significantly applies here. I don't know that everyone is treated equally, but I do think they attempt to be fair."
"I've worked here for almost 8 years and had 2 maternity leaves. In addition to maternity leave (mine was a combination of SD, baby bonding time, PFML and vacation time), NBCU provides a workplace lactation program that includes free breastfeeding classes, access to free phone support from an IBLC certified lactation consultant, and a free hospital grade breast pump. Additionally there is a maternity management program that is available through our insurance that provided ongoing support and check-ins throughout my pregnancies from a designated nurse. Following my return to the workplace, I had access to a designated lactation room (not just an office or closet). NBCU clearly seeks to support and accommodate nursing mothers in the workplace."
"In my department it's mainly a male dominated team, so I feel that women need to assert themselves more to be recognized at the same level. Although I have not taken maternity leave, the policy seems to be subpar against other large companies."
"Women are treated very fairly at NBCU. They are in leadership roles of a number of departments ( Legal, Sales, HR) to name a few. The creative side of production and development is mostly male dominated but I am not sure whether it is a reflection of a lack of women in those areas of the budiness."
"As this is a very large company with multiple different departments and businesses, at least what I have seen of the tech-y and sales side of advertising is male-dominated leadership roles. Some leaders are better than others in encouraging feedback but typically on a smaller team you are able to contribute more and your opinion is taken into greater consideration."
"WE ARE GETTING BETTER WITH REGARDS TO EQUAL TREATMENT AND PAY !!"
"Great at promoting from within, grooming employees to be promoted out to other areas of the company"
"I worked at this company for almost ten years. There was serious gender discrimination. The men were paid more and given preferential treatment in all areas of the workplace. Harassment and bullying were commonplace even though there were mandatory classes all personnel were required to attend stating that these behaviors would not be tolerated. I loved my actual job, but ultimately the discrimination took it's toll and I had to make the choice to move on to an environment that would better support my spirit. I met and worked with some wonderful people there who are still my friends to this day. I only wish I could count my many managers and supervisors among them."
"They actually bought-out a TV station I worked for and it immediately went from a happy-family environment to misery. I never took maternity there, but did need brief time off for another legally protected reason, and was still harassed. Other women were penalized (ie: less favorable jobs/promotions) if they put their children first...one example being a mother declining a business trip due to a child's birthday. There were plenty of people available for the trip, but the mom was on an unofficial probation for about 6 months for putting her child first."
