    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has very very good benefits and very good salary plus commission. I made almost 70k the second year I was there. This may vary though. You get what you put in.

    Cons

    The hours when you start are brutal though. You have to work the late shift till midnight when you first start out. No Exceptions!. But as you work the better you do the more points you get each month the better chances you can bid on a shift when its available.

    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time

    Pros

    While working at this company, I was given almost complete autonomy in my role and was able to learn a lot in a short period of time. There was flexibility of hours and personal time management. The company had great benefits for employees and encouraged us to use our vacation days, etc. I also had the opportunity to meet with clients directly and network with high-level executives in various industries.

    Cons

    There wasn't much room for career growth. Most of the large accounts were already taken by seasoned execs so it was also very difficult to find them. Recently commission was reduced to 9% per month, which is a little deterring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try expanding personal growth opportunities and open up accounts to all AEs. One person should not manage all of the same types of accounts.

    Pros

    Great benefits, including Free Cable, internet and phone, Excellent medical and investment options.

    Cons

    Although there are always advancement options, progress and promotions can come rather slowly depending on the department. No programs to help recent grads, not enough employee development plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest more in your employees. those employees who are trying to be better assets, furthering their education should be given more advancement opportunities instead of managers favorites.

    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Health insurance, residential service for free. Paid vacation.

    Cons

    Extremely high turn over. Unfortunately the company's employees are not being valued as we used to. Management is getting greedy and employees are not people anymore. Promotions are very limited. Corporate is only focused on making money and being good to customers. They forget that is their employees the ones that make it all happen! I have been waiting for a transfer for months with not one follow up phone call. Corporate has their own agenda and will not be transparent unless they have to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your long term employees. Adjust your goals so that we can stay with the company. Be loyal the way you expect us to be loyal.

    Some upper VPs shouldn't make decisions on paper, but rather should understand what the people who actually perform the jobs are really doing.
