    I have been working at Cablevision Systems

    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.

    Pros

    cablevison offers a generous base salary which starts at 25K for first year then after it goes to 40K. 401k. Great benefits and uncapped commission.

    Cons

    You are just as good as
    Your last sale. Company / management doesn't seem to care about you or want to help you if your struggling. They just make you feel worse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more in touch with sales reps. Don't be so negative and make them feel worse Also the micromanagement is such an awful aspect

    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.

    Pros

    Has great benefits, free cable, match 401k. Depending on the building you work is very relaxing dress code.

    Cons

    Company change goals too much, sometimes it seems upper management does not have a clear view of the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the advice is to have a clear goal and keep it. Changing objective in the middle of development is wasting money.
