    Pros

    Fun professional atmosphere. Corporate was always striving for efficient, safe performance. Training was always maintained and maintaince on aircraft was award winning.

    Cons

    Demanding hours, always worked holidays and scheduling was tough. But unfortunately Cablevision Sold to Altice in Sept 2016. Altice downsized the flight dept.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter any more since Cablevision sold and the new owners Altice has a completely different outlook. Streamline and reduce overhead

    I worked at Cablevision Systems (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for until they sold and laid off ton of employees, myself included. Was there almost 15 years. I'd work there again if the new owners weren't so quick to instill operations where they cut staff. who's left to pickup the slack, I wonder?

    Cons

    One dept I worked was Marketing. Too many Indian chiefs, no Indians. Micromanage mentality from one director. I'm sure she's still employed; cockroaches usually survive last. Had to get out of there quickly, moved on to greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    Support employees who want to get ahead. STOP the nepotism and hiring people who don't have the know-how and experience just because they "look like you". DIversity is not a dirty word.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Well worth it.

    Cons

    A dog eat dog mentality is created.

    Advice to Management

    I'm always ontime very courteous and work great with little to no supervision.
