I enjoyed it massively, I gained insight into one of the most incredible and renowned company's in the world - and that experience is invaluable. I made some amazing memories with my team and I managed to network with numerous people in the company, from intern to exec level - which I have now made life long connections with.
Working at NBCUniversal has been an enjoyable and challenging experience. There is a good balance between the work and it's social aspect of being a part of the company meaning you are able to get to know people across the business in a more casual way. Similarly, as there are many interns hired you feel less overwhelmed and more a part of a community. I felt that I had enough work to keep me engaged and interested in what I did most of the time.
I have really enjoyed my internship with Universal Pictures. It was clear that NBCUniversal make sure that their staff are well cared for and supported throughout the year. The Early Careers team were excellent in creating a social network between the interns, holding multiple social events as well as creating a team challenge for us to take part in. I have learnt so much about Digital Marketing and have had the opportunity to network with various departments within the company. It has been an amazing start to a career in film.
Working at NBCUniversal for the past 10 months has been everything and more than what I expected. Everyone I have met along the way has been so willing to help with nothing being too much trouble and always ensure you succeed in everything you do. I feel the company does well at looking after their staff and offering an open door to discuss any problems or issues you may have. I have made some life long friends whilst working for NBCUniversal which I'm very grateful for.
I enjoyed the resourcefulness of the company and its culture. There has been so much support and so much openness from everyone. If I wanted to learn more about a specific aspect of the business it was as easy as walking up to someone's desk and ask for a 1to1 meeting. I can't think of anyone at NBCU who would reject even if they don't know you yet.
Overall, my internship was an invaluable experience which enabled me to learn a lot and has set me up for a future career with the skills I need to take on a role in my department and a much wider understanding of the industry as a whole. The company itself seems to value its interns and regularly set up events to ensure we were all enjoying our time there and getting the most possible out of it.
I had a great experience. There were a lot of events being organised throughout the year (some teams have more events than others) which is great to be a part of. The Christmas Party was great and very fun. You meet a lot of people not only from your team and the people you work with, but also through other interns. The work was interesting and was busy throughout the year long internship. I learned a lot during this one year.
NBCUniversal is a large and structurally complex workplace. However, it is also one of the most enjoyable work environments. There are many benefits to enjoy as an employee, which interns are entitled to as well. You are treated more like a valued employee than you are as just an 'intern'.
My placement at NBCUniversal has been by far the best work experience I have had so far. Waking up wanting to come to work is an indescribable feeling that I hope will continue to experience in the future. I believe the combination of the company, my team and my actual responsibilities was what made it all so enjoyable.
I truly really enjoyed my experience working for NBCUniversal. The company and the people have been amazing, and I have experienced and learnt so much. I had opportunities that I didn't even expect to have, and felt like much more than 'just an intern', but a real and valued member of a team.
