    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.
