    Pros

    Executive management team is the best around. Solid focus on financials that drive the business and the stock.

    Cons

    Lots of political in-fighting between divisions. Company appears to be ambivalent toward developing mid-level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to empower mid-level managers to propose solutions and develop career paths. Huge company with so many opportunities, but many feel they lack opportunities.

    Company gives you open space to grow. Very friendly environment, higher management very interactive, systematic method of work, very intelligent folks working in company from more den 35 years and they are still polite whenever you need any guidance.
    Vendor Management is very powerful.

    Customer service is not so great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need some Air during work hours in HQ, its hectic production team and long day doesn't mean productive day.

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

    Pros

    The corporate culture is relaxed but professional. Compensation, benefits, and time-off policies are all very generous. Comcast HQ in downtown Philadelphia is a fantastic, modern building with the greatest cafeteria I have ever seen!

    Cons

    There really are no significant cons to working for this company other than the fact that the company is HUGE (which may be a drawback for some personality types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is well managed, I don't have any advice to offer.

    Pros

    You'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.

    Cons

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