Why has nobody talked about Comcast's Finance Rotation Program?
Hi all - I'm an FP&A intern at a media & entertainment company and after reviewing all of my options (junior, non-target, wealth management & corp fin internships), I've decided I'm pretty much dead set on starting in an/FRP. After reading up on this site, it seems the best ones are at large F500 companies and have possible rotations through Corporate Development and/or Corporate Strategy teams. I've found I'm pretty much only interested in the technology and media & entertainment industries, so I've been looking primarily at Microsoft's FRP because of all the good things I've read about it here, but also looking at Apple's and Google' program. The 3 of those are each F20 and are super competitive so I've been looking for others to avoid putting all my eggs in 1 basket.
I stumbled upon Comcast's CORE Finance Rotation Program, and am now wondering why it's never been talked about on here. First of all, Comcast is 26 on F500, so it's right up there with the other three. It's a 2 year program with 3 rotations (first is 1 yr, other 2 are 6mo) where at least 1 is required to be with a Comcast team and 1 at a NBCUniversal team. The remaining one can be under either of those or one of Comcast's other BUs like Peacock. I did some LinkedIn stalking and found multiple people that rotated through NBCUniversal's "Corporate Strategy & Business Development" team, Comcast's "Corporate Development" team, and several other interesting sounding rotations. I believe comp is between $65K and $75K based on Glassdoor (so not as sexy as Microsoft) but I was told 1st hand that their relocation reimbursement was over $15K to move to NYC/LA.
Anyways, I'm not arguing that this program is better than Microsoft, GE, J&J, or other big name ones - but doesn't this seem pretty good? I'd love to hear anybody else's $0.02. Also feel free to share any other lesser known programs that could be worth talking about. Thanks in advance!
