Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bethpage, NY
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bethpage, NY

I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good benefits and a chance at always upgrading your skills. They have a tight knit team once you get in with the right people. I honestly feel that most of the team I worked with were trying to be helpful.
all of the benefits of working with a large company.

Cons

Your just a number. If you work for a small department and have a good realation with your boss you may love it. I however worked in a large dept and felt like I was just another number out of the 16,000
others. They have quota's on solving tickets. They are numbers focused instead of quality focused.
large numbers of consultants who may be gone in a day or so. You have to really chase down people to find out answers that should be given to you to do your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a formal training and intro program so you don't spend weeks in just getting passwords and a layout of the network.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of money to be made as expected in many sales job. Free cable, internet and phone. Including all the premium channels. Top performers get a free weekend trip annually to some exotic location.

    Cons

    Very hostile place to work. Certain supervisors would throw you under the bus to save face, immediate mangement most time have no ideas to solve problems because they are not smart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some real smart MBA graduates and not your families, friends and cronies if you want yourbusiness to survive. Verizon is always on the attack!

    Life as a Cablevision Tech

    Current Employee - Cable Technician in Wappingers Falls, NY
    Current Employee - Cable Technician in Wappingers Falls, NY

    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The companies benefits are good and the work load is rarely overwhelming. Everything is provided to you. The pay really isn't that bad

    Cons

    Its hard to advance in your career. Most supervisors make less than some technicians because the pay rate changes from a hourly pay rate to an annual salary so theres not much to look forward to while working in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer us the ability to learn more about different departments so that we can all advance in our careers. Hire based on knowledge not salary.
