    Offer a way for people to telecommute

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent training, great benefits, very decent pay, good employees.

    Cons

    Residential Account Executive job was very difficult at times, but paid well.

    Advice to Management

    Altice needs to keep the old-timers on board.

    Pros

    We worked for a family and we were treated like family.

    Cons

    All the old Cablevision employees are leaving. Whether by choice or forced out by buy outs.
    I hope Altice knows what they are doing. Getting rid of people who know the job, the customers and the areas in which the service is provided, in my opinion, is not a smart move.

    Advice to Management

    I really hope you know what you're doing.

    Advancement is difficult and management used to be a total spoiled brat.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Great people.
    -Decent benefits including discounted services if you live within the companies footprint.
    -Flexible work hours if you're in corporate.

    Cons

    -The company is currently progressing through many changes which are to be expected after an aggressive merger and acquisition. This means constant restructuring and layoffs if you are not in a revenue generating role.
    - Micro-management at all levels. From the call center to management.
    - You or your colleagues can be laid off at a moments notice. This reality keeps folks on edge and sometimes at odds. Nobody is truly happy because of this.
    - Need office equipment? Good luck getting an approval due to a new system which requires every expense be scrutinized by the budgeting committee.
    - Sales people are ridiculously underpaid.
    - Annual bonuses aren't what you think they are. If you are promised a range of 5-20%, expect to be paid at 5% even if your performance review dictates a higher percentage. Your manager will apologize and tell you that next year will be better.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare for a mass exodus of talent. The hard-working people at Altice are more desirable in the marketplace than you think.
