Pros

interesting work great people pretty nice office good benefits fair salary fun to see Kabletown referred to on 30 Rock and you get the inside joke

Cons

- bad understanding of resource management and staffing - little real product management - shifting priorities all the time - predictable busy times are not staffed for and then you get to work 60 hours a week - small raises yearly from Comcast due to slow economy (all the while they are buying NBC) - lots of long term employees who are all super burned out

Advice to Management

listen to people's complaints The exec team are not the only people who are smart - stop thinking you are the smartest

    Pros

    Great workplace. Company provides free snacks and pop, and semi regular events like parties or catered lunch for everyone. There are some very smart people in lead positions that don't mind helping other engineers out when asked.

    Cons

    Hard to figure out how raises and promotions work, annual reviews don't really give much feedback on how to get that raise or promotion. This may have to do with how the economy has been doing lately.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency on raises and promotions. It sucks to find out that raises will be 1-2% 1 month before they are given out. Also, a better bonus structure if raises aren't happening so employees have some motivation to excel.

    Pros

    Smart people Interesting technical challenges Good work/life balance Really good benefits package Backed by Comcast so there are resources for longer term goals

    Cons

    Low turnover rate can sometimes lead to stagnation. Lack of career path Lack of coordination at senior levels for strategic vision No training opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Consider brining in more outside talent Ensure that employees have a clear career path Offer more training and conference opportunities
