    Pros

    Good company, great benefits, pay structure is average, holiday bonus, investment opportunities, and parties are great motivators. Internal opportunities are great, (if not intercepted). The core-foundation of the company is very good.

    Cons

    High-School like behaviors amongst supervisors/managers and above (some). Bullying - type of environment, gossipy, sabotage and misery is infectious and evident throughout some departments.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you can withstand the tremendous pressure they put on you, you can make a good amount of money to be made. great benefits and perks. Free cable, internet and phone, including all premium channels is great. They reward top performers.

    Cons

    Very Micro-Managed. Everything you do is watched like big brother over your shoulders, with constant pressure to do better. I have seen people go to the hospital for the amount of pressure they put on you in sales position. but if you can withstand the pressure and move up to management position, you can have a great career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more employee friendly. stop the micro-management and the tremendous amount of pressure you put on people. A friendly work environment will produce much better results and employees who last longer and not burnout in 6 months.

    Too much change, lack of clarity in direction, instilling fear, every other day another employee gets let go.

    Morale and name is going to continue to decrease if you continue to have no clear direction. Your employees need to trust you to follow you.
