    Always been a great company to work for and was always at the forefront of the Cable technologies

    In the past few years, the company is showing signs of times and job stability concerns.

    Value the employee's you currently have who have shown their loyalty over the years. Fresh idea's are also good, but sometime what you need is there already.

    Pros

    Some very intelligent and nice consultants that work with you

    Cons

    Permenent employees at management level are totally incompetent. VP's and Sr. VP's could not hold a managers position in a fortune 100 organization. Organizational changes are excessive and ill concieved at best.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your friends and relatives which you employee at the upper levels and hire professionals

    Pros

    Endless potential. Free cable and great benifits

    Cons

    Your money is controlled by what they change the offer to that month. Some months are good some are horrible. More horrible than good and never great.
