    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For 9 years this was a great job. I learned a lot in those years. No supervisor hanging over your every move (very self-sufficient job). Met new and interesting customers every day. Able to take truck home if you desire. Pay and benefits were very good. Made some life long friends with my coworkers. When Altice bought the Company all that changed. Eventually I accepted a buy-out.

    Cons

    New owner's treat employees like cattle.
