Pros

Cablevision offers a competitive salary and a cost of living raise but nothing merit based. My particular situation allowed for a flexible schedule, The healthcare benefits were really amazing, low deductibles and copays but high coverage. Additional benefits with free services. There is a great company wide emphasis on training and promoting from within the company and in entry level positions a career progression system is established.

Cons

For a communications company there is limited and slow inter-office communications. The compartmentalization of departments and the top heavy management structure encourage a lot of office politics. Process that could be completed in 3 days will take up to 3 weeks because you have to play the game and appease the egos.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring VPs and start training the managers and directors to be more effective. Open up the business structure, so there is less of the "us vs them" attitude.

    Pros

    Free cable/internet/phone. There are a handful of corporate discounts that employees receive.

    Cons

    I worked in the Corporate IT department for over five years. If there is any culture at all in the company, it is a "you are nothing more than your job function" culture. There is little to no chance for advancement, and the ability to change positions is largely based on your current role, nothing more. Raises are hard to come by and are usually less than 3%. Compensation is based on "pay grades," and it is possible to reach the top of a pay grade and not receive future raises. Training is also only based on your current role, and you will not be approved for training outside your job function.

    There is a clear cut hierarchy based on titles, and you are expected to respect or even fear a person's title. There are a lot of bad or poorly trained managers throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    The company is run poorly from the loud-mouth owner down to the lowliest intern. It feels less like a fortune 500 company and more like a utility. Employees would benefit from a little appreciation from time to time.

  2. It's a great company, but you have to work hard.
