Navigating the company culture

September 28, 2020

Network and branch out as much as possible. Take the initiative to do that. Because NBC is so big, there are a lot of cool people that you’ll miss out on if you don’t take initiative to meet people.

September 18, 2020

You can go in and be yourself. Just make sure that your work speaks for itself as well. The quality of your work will be how you're perceived within the team, even more than your personality.

Succeeding in the promotion process

August 11, 2020

Be proactive. Don’t leave it up to the hands of your manager to get you promoted. Be upfront with your manager about your career goals and how you think you should approach reaching those goals.

Company culture

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.

Company culture

As a whole, company culture is great. It's definitely an environment where you can be yourself.

Diversity programs

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.

Financial Analyst

New York City, NY

tenure:

1-3 years

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.

Company culture

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.

Company culture

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.

Diversity programs

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.

Diversity programs

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.

Senior Analyst

New York City, NY

tenure:

1-3 years

Promotion discussions

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.

Promotion discussions

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.

Company culture

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.

Company culture

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.

Company culture

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.
