    Comcast is an amazing place to work for any tech professional

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsYou'll work with some truly innovative products that reach millions of customers. Good compensation and fantastic work-life balance. Comcast is also dedicated to community projects, making it a rewarding place to build a career. Real opportunities for career growth if you are proactive in seeking them out.

    ConsEngineering teams tend to be siloed, and there tends to be a lot of replicated work as a result.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is like being inside a tornado (in a not good way)

    Product Engineer (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsCompensation and Benefits are good, compensating for City Wage Tax

    ConsToo much email, and too many meetings. Nobody pays attention during meetings, because they too busy reading their email. It is often hard to figure out who is in charge of what.

    Keep your head down and work.

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThis company is breaking ground in a lot of different areas. The people that work there are smart and want to be part of an innovative effort.

    ConsPersonal and professional growth is slow. Manipulation, passive-aggression and bad behavior is rewarded. Doing the right thing is unfortunately swept under a rug.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevaluate values -- tie them to actual human interest and behavior.

    Strong company, unique work, but a toxic, top-down environment

    Senior Director (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsGreat benefits. Company is in a strong financial position with a promising future -- the NBC merge, new building on the way, possible Time Warner purchase and the stock keeps rising. The company is taking over the world and you can feel really safe working here if you can get hired. You can work in a range of digital spaces that most people in tech don't get to touch in like TV interfaces and hardware and the products you work on are used by millions and millions.

    ConsIt's a classic corporate environment with meetings where you sync, circle back, close the loop, etc. but not a lot gets done. Any big company has politics but here at HQ it reaches dangerously toxic levels. Hierarchy rules and for most middle management it's dangerous to be anything but an order-taker. Many good-intentioned middle managers and directors end up run around paranoid or angry because they are given unclear or questionable directives they can't challenge and no one has their backs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is a great company with so much going for it in the tech space. Evaluate VP-level management for the Peter Principle and clean house. Morale is low because there is too much reliance on outsourcing and a resistance to converting contractors. Stop pushing empty employee referral programs and invest in the talent already sitting in your seats.

    Opportunities but not without its problems

    Director (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsBenefits are great - top rate. People strive for success around every turn. Salary is good, and opportunity for growth is there for the select few. Plenty of room for learning new aspects of business and corporate culture.

    ConsHigh stress - Management only worries about their respective boss and not their employees. Focus is solely on #'s and not balance of employee satisfaction. They push for work/results and then wait for months to implement programs that are now obsolete based on market factors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are too top heavy, only a few do the work while many sit in conference rooms all day, never moving the needle in a positive way!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
