    I worked at Comcast full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay for sales reps, complimentary cable, internet, & home-phone, excellent health benefits & 401k plan.

    Cons

    Long work hours, a lot of negative supervisors, & employees (not everyone is negative) high stress work environment. Took away work at hm program which helps so many families. Out sourced a lot of jobs oversees which customer's are very uncomfortable talking to reps in a different country whom they cannot understand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should all be on the same page across the board. Employees are people, many whom are dedicated hard workers, and not just numbers to help achieve business goals. Stop out sourcing jobs oversee's it is bad for business as customers hate talking to under-trained reps in a different country which whom can do who knows what with customers personal info & needless to say most cannot speak nor understand English. Customers complain about this often once they do reach a rep in their local area.

    I worked at Comcast (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working for Comcast, I was given my training opportunities to learn about the company and how to improve on servicing the public. Comcast always provided many ways to train from class to online which allow me to grow.

    Cons

    I look at the possibilities, I found lessons to learn. Working for a corporation is not about a part of a picture but the bigger picture, that is the lesson I learned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always ensure all employees understand the company's ideals, concepts and bottom line.

    Pros

    Reduced cable prices down to below $50 for four rooms, 50 meg internet, and phone.
    Commission opportunites

    Cons

    The commission structure rewards people who take less calls. Your compensation is based on the average sale per call. If you take less calls during dead hours and more calls during peak hours, your stats become inflated. It rewards people who game the system rather than working their hardest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the per call metric and pay better per unit sale. Veterans lost $2000 per month in commission due to reduction in unit payouts
