    Pros

    Fitness center, movie theater, full service cafeteria and catering. Plenty of corporate of corporate discounts

    Cons

    Promotions are not based on ability and potential, but rather who they favor at the moment. Environment can be hostile. Minorities are overlooked, and or the first to be layed off.

    Advice to Management

    Inclusion saves companies.

    Good Benefits, Good Work/Life Balance, Free Cable/Phone, Internet Services, Good Training, Continuous Support

    None that I can think of, however, customer service is key and if you can't provide excellent customer service this may not be for you.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems

    Pros

    Good benefits. - Unfortunately, they decrease every year.

    Cons

    Workload is crazy. Employees are told (at orientation) that they are not allowed to come in before their starting time and not allowed to stay late. BIG JOKE. Managers see their direct reports working through lunch and staying late with no compensation. There are many abusive managers that humiliate and criticize employees in front of their colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Employee morale at all time low. Hire people that encourage their people instead of demeaning them

    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

    Coworkers are very polite and professional. The Benefits like 401k, Healthcare, Free Cable, Internet, and Phone are pretty good. Pay is very generous as long as you meet or exceed expectations. College tuition reimbursement and Fair Amount of Overtime.

    Cons

    Senior management are totally disorganized. No Consistency throughout the Call Centers. Lack of training and you basically learn as you go. Layoffs almost every single day. Tools often break down while trying to resolve an issue with a customer. Very Angry Customers

    Advice to Management

    New Senior Management Overall. Properly train your Employees by having Trainers not an one hour video training.

    Pros

    Nice company to work for, a bit unorganized for that size company. Hopefully, they worked out the IT issues they were having.

    Cons

    Too many changes in management who had different software choices. Made it difficult to do your job and training was not being offered, so you are on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Changing upper-management can be difficult when they have new ideas as to what software they are going to use. Training should be offered immediately so that nobody is 'floundering" & can be productive .

    Cons

    company is going through transformation and is in total chaos. The senior management team are totally disorganized. Lay-offs and severance payments are very high.

    Get their act together. Lay-offs is not the answer to everything.

    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.
