    I worked at Adelphia Cable full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned quite a bit during my tenure here. Fast paced, goal oriented, it was better than some college courses regarding hands on training.

    Cons

    You learn so quickly because it was obvious that managers don't care, don't dare ask a question and heaven forbid you make mistake.

    Advice to Management

    Kind of pointless since they are out of business and thank god for that.

    I worked at Adelphia Cable full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was appropriate, with proper negotiations. Funding was available for projects with a reasonable business case. Perks were adequate.

    Opportunities for advancement were readily available.

    Cons

    Management was schizophrenic, with no clear and consistent project prioritization. Money is wasted on projects that are doomed to failure, while projects with a clear path to success are cut. Too many good employees have left during past transitions.

    Staff turnover was high and internal documentation limited. As a result only a few "old guard" are left that really understand existing systems.

    Pros

    Depending on location and management style, could be fun.

    Cons

    Expectations at times were unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    The "tone at the top" is important. Inconsistency creates confusion for middle management and employee directives.
