    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The cable benefit is great, and the rest of the benefit offerings are good. Starting salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    The work life balance is very poor. The workload is unmanageable and there is a lot of favoritism and social promotions. It's a shame because it used to be a wonderful place to work, but over the last two years, it's become miserable.

    Constant restructuring takes it toll on loyalty and morale

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

    Pros

    Cablevision is highly motivated to advance their product offerings in a highly competitive marketplace. To maintain or increase market share, Cablevision needs to dispense with old-school thinking regarding what they *think* customers want and look at the data they have available to them. Some groups within Cablevision are doing this more effectively than others. Good benefits, decent vacation, some nice perks.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management and constant restructuring leaves many people in fear for their jobs, resulting in lower productivity and a real morale problem. Those in the ivory towers don't see it (or don't want to acknowledge it). Too many talented people have been let go in the course of trying out half-baked org structures led by people whose only 'talent' seems to be their ability to intimidate.

    Pros

    Local, good salary, employees hard-working and majority good people.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, vision, creativity and communication. Not an encouraging environment for personal growth or health, out of touch management doesn't live by company values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and allow them to do their jobs.

    Pros

    Free cable, phone, Internet. Decent people, mostly. Suburban atmosphere

    Cons

    Backstabbing superiors who did not flinch to throw others under the bus to save their own job. So glad I'm gone, but was a brutal experience. Went from two years of "exceeds expectation" in job reviews to whacked so my boss could save his job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ugh.

    Pros

    I enjoy the values that the company generally places on its employees. It has great benefits and competitive pay. Many different types of positions are available

    Cons

    Workload is extreme, career paths are unclear and the management is not strong. (not EVP level and above)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directors/VP/SVP's need to be leaders, not traffic coordinators.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with a lot of support to help you achieve your sale goals.

    Cons

    The commission structure did not compensate well for the sales achieved by employers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commission structures should be a little more flexible in late night hours since sales calls cant be made after 9pm.
