    Pros

    work environment, benefits and management are always willing to assist

    Cons

    The pay is not as good as other companies in the same field but the benefits are outstanding.

    Advice to Management

    Since it's a 24/7 it's really hard for management to work on schedules and work life balance because the customers have to be served so since I was in management I completely understand it's just the way of the business

    Pros

    The only positive perk was the benefits were awesome, and decent start pay. Anything less turnover would be unbearable.

    Cons

    Job sucks, literally stuck like a prisoner. Worse feeling and job ever. They monitor you worse then the government. Be careful if you any medical issues, if you need to go to the bathroom they watch how long your gone for. No real future, just high turnover all day long. Company themselves is great, the job is just god awful. Try it an you will be writing on this wall someday too. Good luck ever getting a decent shift, you ever hear of a shift bid ? HAHA what a joke !!!!

    Advice to Management

    TREAT EMPLOYEES LIKE ADULTS, A LITTLE TASTE OF FREEDOM WOULD BE NICE. YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE TO GET INTO THIS JOB.

  9. Very top heavy organization, Large company with small company culture

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cablevision Systems

    Pros

    Product benefit and one of the largest employers on LI

    Cons

    way too many directors VP and SVPs and most of them have been there far longer than should be allowed given their lack of vision

    Overly complex organization model, likely due to leadership that doesn't want to let go

    Most people are fearful to speak up when it is clear a strategy is flawed

    Advice to Management

    Invest in an outside unbiased firm to come and bring the company into the modern world in terms of organization, culture and process

    Pros

    There are great benefits and perks offered when you work here. The health benefits are great and they have new movies playing at the onsite theater every week. There is also a gym on site. The work/family life balance is very doable.

    Cons

    If you are gaining a positive performance evaluation you will get a warning, and there is a chance to be let go if it happens again.
