Master Control Operator | New York, NY | Sep 23, 2020
Get in as high as possible you won’t get promoted
I worked for two departments while at NBC, Commercial Operations which is now Sales Operations and aster Control. When I worked in Commercial Operations I loved everything about my job and my co-workers. I went on maternity leave (which is 16 weeks by the way) The two top women in our dept (the vp and regional manager) who happened to be Hispanic and black were fired after 17 and 21 years due to departmental changes. They brought in some new managers who were inexperienced and much cheaper who did not know our department. Needless to say, a few months later the fired another female manager of 46 years and replaced her with a male who had been with the company for 9 years. Morale got very low so I left and went across the bridge to the Master Control department. This department was going through new management protocols and had a history of previous managers leaving because they were being passed up for vp positions from newcomers. The master Control operators were newer on the sports side and management did not really help with sops. Mistakes or errors were blamed on whoever the manager was not favorable with. The technical managers/Supervisors were pretty nice but played favorites with people they were cool with or their roommates. The entertainment master control operators seemed miserable because they hated their shifts. Overall as a sports operator I was pretty happy as long as I was live. The training process is terrible and can leave your career stagnant. Welp, that’s
ProsLots of free food, great maternity leave, park passes to universal
ConsTraining takes too long, too many moving managers

NBCU afforded me a lot of opportunities as I had the ability to work from home. I blessing in disguise as I was needed to be able to take care of my husband through multiple illnesses. Work/Life balance was second nature and management truly reflected that. Work was sometimes long, hard and tedious - but that's what kept it exciting. I would join the NBCU family in a heartbeat if the opportunity presented itself.
