    Pros

    Working at Comcast has given me the opportunity to develop myself; take the time to grow and learn, and that was really important to me during the time in my life when I joined the company. If you have the drive and ambition, there are a ton of ways in which you can grow into a leader if that's what you want to be. I took advantage of the continued education benefit and am finishing my masters degree now... I also joined a couple of the employee resource groups which offer seminars and networking events that support your professional profile. Listen, I'm not a total nerd. The point of my post is that this isn't a company you join and just stay stale within. They encourage your growth, but it's up to you to make it happen. Not only this - it's pretty exciting. We're busy and we have big jobs to do. My salary is in the top percentile for my industry but not only this, I again get the continued education (which is ~$6K/year) plus free cable/internet, top health care benefits and a truly balanced lifestyle - which is rarely the case within the Tech industry.

    Cons

    Telling people you work at Comcast triggers 2 typical responses: 1) A big hatred rant on customer service 2) A how do I get my foot in the door? The reputation of the company is difficult, but the style of the company is to stay humble - I've never seen the company defend themselves against the harmful and discrediting news that exists. I personally think they should defend themselves a little more - they are between a rock and a hard place in many instances of service. I personally experienced visiting someone's home where the issues they were having with their connection was due to a tree root growing into the cable lines which had been their for over 20 years. Things like that cannot be diagnosed over a phone call. It's hard work in the field for sure. Being a part of the corporate side sometimes we're too disconnected from what's happening on the frontline. So I think the size of the organization comes with its complications, but again if you're a working professional looking for an exciting, robust and sexy career, you can comfortably have it here.

    Pros

    Good pay scale, Great benefit package. The company makes every effort to hire from in and help employees achieve their career goals.

    Cons

    Numbers and metric driven in most areas. Some growing pains as company continues to move forward and drive industry standards. Customer service and public opinion continue to be an area of focus.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be aware of status in the community as well as the business arena and continue to focus on advancing the industry

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility. Any self motivated persons can run with this job and make good money. Great training

    Cons

    The weather conditions that hinder work. The time it takes to get paid on an initial setup.

    Advice to Management

    Provide DSR with more comcast paraphernalia to feel confident about doing their job and doing it well.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Great training to stay ahead of the game and make sure you have the tools to get your job done.

    Cons

    Not very flexible, attendance policy needs to be addressed . Doesn't give much time for you to have important stuff outside of work for unless you're leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Work with non leadership more about getting a better attendance policy and more flexibility.

    Pros

    People are awesome to work with, forgiving of mistakes as long as it does not affect a manager’s bonus, good time off for new employees. Sick time will get you written up if used but otherwise can use it as simple time of and they are very willing to work with you on time off to make sure you get the days off you want (just do not call in sick).

    Cons

    There is zero feedback from management, no communication at all until they decide to give you a warning and then zero feedback again for 3 months. Manager’s seems scared to give feedback as it would give them bad reviews from employees at the end of the year and would rather go the paperwork route. Management is locked in their cubical unwilling to talk with their employees. This seems to be hit or miss in the company depending on department. If you are thinking of joining the company in a technical role make sure to verify management knows about IT, what your job is and the responsibilities of the role as I would recommend them from the conversations with other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Know what your employees are doing, know what job you want them to do, talk to them rather then just saying hello in the morning. It is ok to tell people they are doing things wrong, incorrect, but do not be silent for 6 months then do an ambush on them, it seems one layer of management is out of touch with the next.
