    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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

    Great pay scale, excellent benefits, lots of room for growth and advancement, and they treat their employees well. If you're in any of the larger departments (customer service, technical support, field service, etc), you'll be well taken care of. Most of the smaller departments (various internal operations centers, etc) also are great to be in.

    Cons

    There are a few departments that are more behind the scenes which treat their people horrendously. To be sure, these are a minority and the company overall is great, but if you get stuck in one of these places, be prepared for frustration and abuse. The only way out is to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on favoritism among middle management, especially those who have been in their position for a while. Speaking as a former employee and as someone who knows quite a few other former and current employees, this is a huge sticking point for a lot of people. One or two people with too much influence in the wrong position can turn a thriving, well liked department into a place of abject misery for its people.

    Pros

    Very good company to work for with very good benefits. this is a good company to put on the resume. christmas dinners and BBQs/ picnics during the summers. The are always busy especially during the summers. time in a half your first day off and double time on your second.

    Cons

    very difficult to work at this position while going to school part time. you wont be getting out of work on time. this is a very labor intensive position. supervisor will keep loading extra work on . not enough equipments and trucks. the pay should be a extra 5 dollars a hour.

    Advice to Management

    the job is hard enough as it is. many techs feel like its management against employees. management need to have the back of the employees. not support from them what so ever. also sometimes people cannot stay late.

    Pros

    It's definitely fun to work at Cablevision. A lot of things has changed within the past year. A lot of change in leadership. You are able to communicate to the higher ups and it's an open door policy in this company. You definitely have to take advantage of these opportunities and seek them. There many events and opportunities to participate yourself to know everyone. It's a company that was stagnant in the past but it has learned from it's mistakes and is moving forward. Fun parties, great benefits and incentives. Directors, managers and supervisors definitely listens to you. Absolutely a company that lets you move around and is not stagnant in recognizing your achievement. A company that you can move up in as well.

    Cons

    Can be a bit slow paced at times. A bit vague with many things that are dropped from upper management. Has to be explained by many. No clear cross communication. Hear different things from different people. Have to wait until it's cleared up by directors or managers.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication.
