    I worked at RCN full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay free cable, small but supportive staff

    Cons

    You're expected to do door to door sales which is very inefficient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're a good company. Maybe consider some more aggressive steps toward name recognition
