    Pros

    Positive work envionrment.
    Chances to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    No longer backfilling positions so fewer and fewer people left to do same amount of work.
    Bringing in off-shore consultants but directing and overseeing their work is nearly full-time job.
    Limited advancement opportunity.
    Good salaries for location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't hire enough people to do the work, even with consultant augmentation, then reset expectations on how much time projects will take.

    Worked here as a Summer Intern

    I worked at Cablevision Systems as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked here as an intern over the summer and I felt like I learned a lot. I felt like my work was actually contributing to the company's operations and not just busy work. The hours were good and flexible. I got to work directly with account executives and senior management.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt like I was forgotten about, I would go days without being given projects.

    Pros

    Corporate life is not bad, you should know all the perks by now: gym, cafe, dry cleaner, shoe shiner, movie theater, free cable, internet, telephone.

    Cons

    The training department has suffered a few waves worth of layoffs. Was (maybe still is) a very stressful environment the past few years since the regime change. Some completely unmerited promotions only to lead to subsequent firings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to lay people off, do it all in one shot and let people know when it's over.
