    Pros

    Good people, good resume padder

    Cons

    Very old school and corporate like. Most of the execs are nice, but theres not much of a company life to speak of. Your a cube mon

    Advice to Management

    Establish a culture to improve employee morale
    Have snacks or something. Walking into a cube everyday isn't the most motivating thing. Especially when there are rarely company events to motivate employees.

    I have been working at Cablevision Systems (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits all around - medical, dental, product discount,
    Accrued time off increases with consecutive years of work
    Pay is excellent and comparable or better than similar jobs with same titles out there

    Cons

    The higher in the ranks you go, the less work-life-balance you will have
    management will always put the blame on their subordinates to save themselves
    you'll go to the dr more for stress-related sickness than anything else
    lots of job postings, but if you don't have an "in" with the other dept, then you will have to wait a long time for a new position

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you have to put the employee before the job. If you are loyal to your people, they will be loyal to you

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

    Pros

    The company consists of good people, the technology (addressable advertising) is finally out in the market and people seem to work there for a very long time; lifers.

    Cons

    There is a bizarre culture (led by the Dolans). Everyone seems to be nervous all the time. The pay could be better...not even close to marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up with the nervous energy; it's only hurting the company overall.

    Benefits were good. Good career progression and pay raises.

    Accurately check the amount of jobs that are in for the next few days and schedule workers accordingly with room for error aka people calling in sick etc.

    Long commute for NYC & 5 Boroughs folks.Very by-the-book: Innovation can be hampered by a business model whose assumptions no longer hold true.
