    Former Employee - Retention Specialist in Piscataway, NJ

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits - Healthcare/401k and pension plan and that's about it.

    Cons

    Too much to list. It's a call center environment, turn over rate is extremely high, the call center environment is extremely micro-managed. If you're a good employee and you're nearing 10 years tenure, they'll look for every way they can to get rid of you. I worked there 9+ years , and it happened to me and MANY MANY other employee's before me. They even denied us our unemployment, we had to fight for that too. I fought and won !!!!!! They wouldn't let us have a union - another reason I probably got fired. I was a very good loyal employee, they abused me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Mr Dolan and upper management - you all need to get off your high horse - quit being so damned greedy.....give the employee's a good raise and give them "job security" . You took people that were good reliable workers and destroyed their lives. And quit flying your damned helicopter to work !

    Former Employee - QA Analyst in Bethpage, NY

    I worked at Cablevision Systems as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    BAs, Developers and QA are professional and talented.

    Cons

    Unit testing does not seem to be a part of the process. It is rare for basic functionality to work the first time the code is deployed to QA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The development test environment should be maintained.
