Good place to work - some cons

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
