    Pros

    thePlatform still has a startup like culture with the added bonus of having the big company benefits that come from being a Comcast company. Since there is a high focus on product development, a consistent stream of new products and features help drive new business and keep the existing customer base happy. There is always an opportunity to work with new technologies and systems as there is still an effort to reinvent and improve wherever possible.

      There are many great people to work and interact with, and most make an effort to be a part of the many company sponsored events like baseball outings, bowling, trivia nights, summer picnics and catered lunches which make for a fun and interactive culture. The open door policy also allows for direct interaction and conversations with executive team who encourage feedback and new ideas.

    Cons

    While the focus on product development makes for an exciting environment, it can often lead to a complicated set of system dependencies, tight deadlines, and choosing new features over the stability of a product. There is also a tendency to overcommit to customers in terms of timelines and cost which often leads to constantly changing priorities as well as emergency fixes and deployments that might otherwise have been avoided.

      Quite often large initiatives get implemented in parallel without a good understanding of the resources needed to bring them to market in a way that's sustainable. This tends to leave them unstable, partially finished, or not profitable. This is likely a result of the constant push for the starting tomorrow's work while not leaving adequate resources to nicely finish up yesterday's work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should continue to encourage the fun culture and the open door policy, as well as consider doing fewer projects with more focused resources to enable more success overall.
