Pros

It's more of a family run business than a corporate environment. We are more a part of the big picture than a small segment of the business and tend to work across channels. The cost of benefits are very inexpensive compared to other large companies. The 401k plan is a 1 to 1 match up to 6% of your contribution. There is an employee stock plan that allows you to purchase stock at a 15% discount. The perks of being in the entertainment business is that many events are sponsered and hence free tickets are available to employees on a regular basis.

Cons

The pay could be a little higher, but then again it is offset by the low cost of benefits and friendly working atmosphere. Compared to other large corporations, the pay could be bumped up a bit. It is known throughout the ranks that they do not pay as well as other companies, but on the good side, the employees don't really complain. The main reason is the great benefits and fringes. I really don't have anything bad to say about the company and so to use up the 100 words I am going to keep typing this response until all the words are used up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work, but look into consolidating some of the decentralized functions. It seems that every location has an accounting team, warehouse team, etc. I believe some of these functions could be more centralized thus increasing the bottom line.

    Pros

    Free cable and internet! Good benefits and pay. A pretty solid company overall.

    Cons

    It's a huge corporation and is almost like the Microsoft of the cable industry. Change is slow. The chance of the employee stock purchase plan to skyrocket is nearly out of the question. The company is always under scrutiny by the media and not everything Comcast does is a reflection of each and every employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace new technologies. Our internal systems (even the ones that are in current development) seem pretty outdated. I'm sure it's not as simple as that, but I do think there is room for improvement and innovation.

    Pros

    Fast paced, cutting edge company. Diverse workplace and lots of growth opportunities. Awesome benefit package and plenty of room for career growth.

    Cons

    Lots of reorganizing and no job security. Seems like company grew too fast. Bad customer service is a terrible problem. When you say you work at Comcast people always equate that with a company that providews terrible customer service. I am proud to work at Comcast....I wish we had good customer service so that customers would be able to depend on good service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate with lower level employees, continue to explain the competition and how we can help. Get the call centers and techs to provide better customer service so we can get out of the tanks and out of the news for having the worst customer service.
