    Pros

    Cablevision was always very good to me. They had good benefits and other perks like discounted tickets. My coworkers were great!

    Cons

    At times, the job was extremely stressful.

    Advice to Management

    People like to be rewarded for their efforts and although it is done occasionally, it should be done more often, especially during the stressful times.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Free cable is a great perk as well

    Cons

    Policy is different from office to office. Centralizing is a start, but people are concerned with more layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your ivory tower and get face time with front line staff...more than one time ever three or four years

    Pros

    Dedicated staff, excellent benefits, free cable, phone and internet service, 401K match.

    Cons

    Very political, unstable environment. Layoffs abound, which are not handled in a way that is respectful to those being let go. Employees are called in, managers come out with boxes and pack up belongings while other workers sit silently stunned, afraid to look up or talk. Each day, most people wonder if it's going to be their last, to the point that very few personal effects are displayed so one can "pack in a hurry" . . .

    Advice to Management

    People are human beings, folks. Be discreet. Be compassionate. Tell the truth.

    Pros

    Commission is great for people who will go the extra mile. This job will test your character to see what you are actually made of.

    Cons

    2 hours everyday min. to check in and receive your daily power talk when this process could be done in the field or in a shorter amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing your teams outside their comfort zones to become the best account executive you can be.
