The team atmosphere was interesting. Every team is different. The team I ended up on was very receptive of feedback. It was kind of diverse in that it was 50-50 male-female.
As a whole, company culture is great. It's definitely an environment where you can be yourself.
They have BEN, LatinX and other diverse ERGs.
Relationships with manager(s)
They were good. They were open and candid. They weren't the type to micromanage me, and they were very inclusive.
Training and career development
Once you became a part of the team, you were basically put on a promotion track - if you hit certain metrics then they'll promote you.

Application and interview process
I interned first, and then was interviewed for a FT role at the end of the internship. The process was straightforward. I applied online. It was very simple; I applied through Indeed. They were pretty transparent about the timing and everything.
It’s very fast-paced. It’s very resourceful and social. It’s an environment where merit will get you far, but being good at your job and being likeable will get you really far.
It’s a really fun company. There’s a lot more social activity going on. It’s also very lively, so everyone is friends past even being co-workers.
They're pretty standard for a Fortune 50 business. We have employee resource groups for different minority groups. They are focused on race, abilities, and sexuality.
There's a good level of autonomy for the ERGs. Being part of the Black ERG, a lot of the recent events are focused on the Black experience with all of the social justice movements going on.

Our teams have been good about recognizing good work and promoting it when it’s warranted. I’m only a year into this role, and I’d like to be promoted within the next year, and COVID has made that hard, but my manager is aware of my plan to grow in my role.
They don’t have strict guidelines as to when people can get promoted. People got promoted during various times in the year on my last team. There isn't a one-and-done rule.
It’s very professional. It’s friendly. It’s approachable. It’s all about relationships. I think it’s pretty healthy. In my time in the New York location, I’ve had nothing but positive relationships with my peers and people above and below.
Work-life balance is pretty balanced. It’s very much like a normal schedule, especially for New York - 9am-6pm. There are some days that you have to work later, but overall I’m able to have a life outside of work and make workout classes. It’s pretty team dependent, but I really find that it’s true at NBCUniversal. It also really depends on your team and your boss.
It’s pretty healthy in terms of interactions within the team. There’s a lot of comradery. I have good work friends. We have happy hours that we try to do that aren’t company-sponsored and just have a mix of people. We try to go out together and help each other out.
