    Pros

    Once you are a member of the Cablevision family, you are free to pursue various aspects of the industry from Product Management to Operations. There is a very robust internal interview process and many have reaped the benefits of it and have turned their careers on a dime as a fresh direction is desired. As a result of this practice, employees are empowered to own their career path and overall company morale is positively impacted.

    Another great aspect of the job are the perks. Virtually all the products the company offers are FREE to employees (Cable TV, Internet, and Phone). I would estimate that the perks given to all FTE's would be valued at $200+/month.

    Cons

    Vacation benefits should be increased for long tenured employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep out of the news!!!

    Pros

    The benefits package, from the Cablevision services to health care. The stability of the company and the feeling that they care about you as an employee. Certain areas have been downsized in this economy, but they do their best to place you in another area of the company that is hiring.

    Cons

    Sometimes you don't always get the position you intial intend on getting. You might have to start at entry level with an undesirable schedule and work your way up.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management that I have worked with have always been knowledgeable and respectful.

    Pros

    Cablevision is essentially a family business. Beyond the corporation, beyond the knicks, MSG, AMC and all the properties... it is a company created by one man, staffed by several family members. Thus it has a small family feel. The company cares about you... and makes it very clear. In the first orientation we were told about the commitments between cablevision and the employees. I have moved very quickly within the company and am very grateful to have the opportunity to work for them. Essentially all MSO are the same if not similar, product wise... Cox, Tw, RCN, Comcast all have similar products so it is not difficult to move within these corporations. But Finding a company worth working for is difficult.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel as if they hire under qualified people for their lower ranking roles such as assistants and productivity is hindered,. I hope that management will remove under performing or sub par employees so it creates a move productive and "elite" environment.

    For the pay they are under shooting performance. Many of the people making $40,000 have the work ethic and intelligence of a $25k person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is a difficult time business wise, but i am very confident in my senior management and I am willing to work 100 percent harder if need be because I can see their vision.

    Pros

    Reasonable hours, great benefits, comfortable working environment and the people are really great to work with. Always enjoyed going to work on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Work was very repetitive and at times got boring. Communication between different levels of employees and management was non existent at times.

    Advice to Management

    Speak more openly with employees so that they feel like they are in the loop. Other than that the culture is nice to work in and the offices are very nice.

    Pros

    Depending on the group you work for, Cablevision provides a healthy and safe environment to work for with great benefits and family responsibilities in mind. Some managers are willing to mentor and show you how to grow without micro-managing (but keep in mind, these are select individuals that work like this). I reiterate, depending on who you work for, some managers prefer the micro-managing approach

    Cons

    Can get monotonous if you aren't proactively progressive within your profession. Lots of red tape and politics if you don't "know" the right people.

    Pros

    Cablevision is an exciting workplace with a diverse collection of media and sports assets, but in general it is a fun open and interesting place.

    Cons

    The family controlled/ publically traded environment has some political complications for more senior executives, but has little impact on 99% of employees.

    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A terrific work enviornment with interesting projects. Very fast paced with little to no down-time which is great! Very collaborative team of people which are open minded to new ideas. The customer is at the center of everything we do.

    Cons

    Very fast paced so at times you don't have the time necessary to explore alternative approaches. This requires ongoing compromise but such is the case almost everywhere. On some of the more critical projects it would be great to have a bit more time.

    Advice to Management

    I'm really impressed with my direct management team and the executive staff as well.
