    I worked at NBCUniversal as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a lot of fun to be an NBC intern. The internship program is very structured and they spend a lot of time making sure you get the most out of your summer experience with them. You get the opportunity to hear many important people speak about a wide range of topics and you get a chance to be a part of a venerable institution. They really value their interns, unlike many companies. Also a great place to have a connection with for after graduation - there are always new openings throughout the company.

    Cons

    Their policy is that interns can only work 2.5 days a week, so if you're hoping for a full-time position for the summer, this won't be it.
