Finance Manager, Cable Division

Finance Manager (Former Employee)
Chelmsford, MA

I worked at Comcast full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLots of good people, excellent benefits, growing company, cutting edge technology

ConsVery bottom line oriented. They are not happy with earning 50% margins, which other companies would kill for. If you are in what is considered "administration" i.e. finance, accounting, HR, Gov't relations, etc, your job can be eliminated at a moments notice. Once you leave the company, it's virtually impossible to get back in. Older workers looking for mid level managerial positions are not in demand.

Worst Company I Have Ever Worked For.

Customer Account Executive (Former Employee)
Chelmsford, MA

I worked at Comcast full-time for less than a year

ProsDecent benefits and pay plus free cable and internet.

ConsThankfully this was a position I took while in between jobs while I was completing my Masters degree. I was told I go to the bathroom too much and was put on notice because of it. Even though I have a medical issue that causes this, they did not care. I was yelled at for being literally 2 minute late. You get yelled at by customers constantly. Even if what they are saying is offensive you still have to stay on the phone. Management only cares about numbers and are more concerned about keeping their jobs than helping their employees. Thankfully I found a position in my field and left 6 months later. If you care about your sanity don't take a job at Comcast!

Advice to Senior ManagementTheir are so many things you have to worry about as far as numbers are concerned and then you have to worry about following a script.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Do your career a favor....stay out of the XOC

HFC Analyst (Former Employee)
Chelmsford, MA

I worked at Comcast full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere is the free internet, phone and cable television. If you are inexperienced or a tech refugee, this is an adequate place to park.

ConsThe culture of the Network Operations Team (XOC) is toxic. Management fosters an environment that rewards those who inform on fellow employees and ostracizes those who are not a social fit. Often, employees have described the feeling of having the proverbial "target painted on your back". Comcast does not have a good reputation among other employers. In a nutshell, interviewing managers from other prospective companies have expressed their displeasure with the company. Morale was initially improved when they had reorganized management, but it settled back into a state which resembles a ship whose crew is ready to mutiny.

Advice to Senior ManagementDispense with the Type 4 management technique: Kiss up and kick down.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Very rewarding, company with a good product, co-workers were among the best.

Finance Manager (Former Employee)
Chelmsford, MA

I worked at Comcast

ProsGreat benefits, interesting work, plenty of work to keep you busy, a lot of comraderie in the group that I worked in.

ConsCompany is very bottom line oriented. Any threats to maintaining the profit margins seem to result in a reduction in force.

Advice to Senior ManagementTop management is very quick to pull the trigger to reduce costs, but I'm not sure that they look at the effect it has on both the employees who leave, and more importantly, those who stay.
