    I have been working at Comcast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Comcast has given me the opportunity to develop myself; take the time to grow and learn, and that was really important to me during the time in my life when I joined the company. If you have the drive and ambition, there are a ton of ways in which you can grow into a leader if that's what you want to be. I took advantage of the continued education benefit and am finishing my masters degree now... I also joined a couple of the employee resource groups which offer seminars and networking events that support your professional profile. Listen, I'm not a total nerd. The point of my post is that this isn't a company you join and just stay stale within. They encourage your growth, but it's up to you to make it happen. Not only this - it's pretty exciting. We're busy and we have big jobs to do. My salary is in the top percentile for my industry but not only this, I again get the continued education (which is ~$6K/year) plus free cable/internet, top health care benefits and a truly balanced lifestyle - which is rarely the case within the Tech industry.

    Cons

    Telling people you work at Comcast triggers 2 typical responses: 1) A big hatred rant on customer service 2) A how do I get my foot in the door?

    The reputation of the company is difficult, but the style of the company is to stay humble - I've never seen the company defend themselves against the harmful and discrediting news that exists. I personally think they should defend themselves a little more - they are between a rock and a hard place in many instances of service. I personally experienced visiting someone's home where the issues they were having with their connection was due to a tree root growing into the cable lines which had been their for over 20 years. Things like that cannot be diagnosed over a phone call. It's hard work in the field for sure. Being a part of the corporate side sometimes we're too disconnected from what's happening on the frontline. So I think the size of the organization comes with its complications, but again if you're a working professional looking for an exciting, robust and sexy career, you can comfortably have it here.

    Director of Data Science Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Radnor, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Comcast (Radnor, PA).

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn and got a call from an internal recruiter, who was very pleasant and enthusiastic. I passed the initial phone screen and was invited to do an in-depth phone interview with a peer. I spent about an hour on the phone at this stage, answering technical questions and learning about the role. I was subsequently invited to the next stage. I was asked to do a data science project using a dataset they would supply. In retrospect, I should have refused. I spent several hours building a predictive model and putting a PowerPoint deck together, which I presented to the same person who interviewed me. It started to become clear at this point that the person interviewing me didn’t know as much about the technical content as I did; I felt like I was providing free consulting. I was then invited to an on-site interview. The interview lasted about half a day and included around 10 people. One person on the schedule never showed. In general, I found the interviewers arrogant and not very sophisticated. One person had me go through some old-school thought experiments. In the first, he asked me why there are more escalators going up than down in a typical train station. I answered that one correctly, so he then asked me to estimate the number of light bulbs in Philadelphia. He didn’t like my answer on this one and made me guess about how he preferred to answer the question. With other interviewers I got a lot of questions on the predictive modeling process, ranging from data cleaning and feature engineering to favorite algorithms, preventing model overfit, and managing very large feature sets. My sense was that I knew more and had vastly more practical experience in these areas than anyone interviewing me. Nevertheless, I thought o did a good job of being patient and personable and engaging with the process in a constructive way. I never heard back. It has been a complete waste of time all around. Never again.
