comcast nbcuniversal 3rd in fortune's 2019 best big companies to work for list

Comcast NBCUniversal ranked third on Fortune’s 2019 inaugural list of ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’.

Comcast NBCUniversal has been ranked third on Fortune’s 2019 list of ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’.

On the company’s website a spokesperson for the global mass media conglomerate describes the recognition as “an honor”, attributing it to the passion and commitment of the company’s employees around the world, across the fields of software design, engineering, news, film, entertainment, and theme park production, and the inclusive environment they have created.

Challenges for larger companies

Fortune’s ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’ list has been created this year to recognise that being a larger company can be a mixed blessing. There are specific challenges facing larger companies, including recruiting, communication and making employees feel valued. Companies with more than 100,000 employees are only half as likely to be voted a Great Place to Work for All.

The prestigious list is specifically for companies with in excess of 100,000 US employees. To qualify, they must also have received the Great Place to Work certification, based on each company’s benefits programs and policies, and anonymous employee survey responses.

Survey participants rank their workplace according to more than 60 factors. These include elements such as workplace characteristics connected to innovation, trust in managers, camaraderie, compensation and fairness. The ranking is inclusive, comprising answers from all respondents, including older team members, people of color, LGBT employees, women and disabled people.

Comcast NBCUniversal highlights included:

  • 90% – Employees say this is a great place to work.
  • 94% – When you join the company, you are made to feel welcome.
  • 92% – I am able to take time off from work when I think it’s necessary.
  • 92% – When I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride.

Comcast NBCUniversal was also recognized on the annual 2019 FORTUNE ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ list, released in conjunction with the ‘Best Big companies to Work For’ ranking.
