    I have been working at Comcast full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance, benefits, and opportunity to work with meaningful projects. The people here are amazing. I really enjoy who I work with and have fun while producing results at a rapid pace. Comcast moves very fast as it is on the bleeding edge of media and technology.

    Cons

    The extremely fast pace can be a pro or a con. The speed of change feeds what I personally look for in a company, but see that it can be a challenge for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving on the path towards innovation. Exciting to be a part of a company that is leading/creating an industry.

    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.

    I have been working at Comcast full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits of working at Comcast include a number of things: good benefits, interesting technologies, reasonable work environment and ethical corporate infrastructure

    Cons

    As is commonplace in all large corporations, the internal work environments and projects may not be uniform across the corporate footprint. Also, since Comcast is a customer-driven organization, depending on a person's position, there can be occasional 24/7 work issues if field/production environments have a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to keep the work environment healthy using standard management practices.

    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.
