    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.

    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, good perks, uniforms, good work relationships established. Good team work amongst colleagues.

    Cons

    We've been altice not even a year since they bought it from Cablevision..and they have already taken away holidays, sick time, some benefits, and holiday bonuses.. and our benefit contributions are going up ...whats next...? They are forcing talented senior people to take voluntary separation packages and give the hint that if they dont they probably wont have a job in the coming years. Directors and managers have left for other companies in droves after the take over..like they knew what was coming down the road.
    Whats next...pay cuts? Like things arent expensive enough in the north east...they are treating us like pawns on the chess board..they have an addition by subtraction mentality...slash and cut...meanwhile the upper 1% will be raking in millions in salaries, bonuses, and stock options

    Advice to Management

    Stop nickel and diming your employees...or it will back fire on you. Moral is at an all time low...your network will run at its best depending on whos working on it..and how you treat them.

    The benefits are great. Well worth it.

    Pros

    Great pay and Benefits. Free cable benefit if you live in the footprint.

    Cons

    management was not supportive. People would get fired or forced to quit when they were good employees, but bad employees that hung out with management got to keep their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are stressed enough, no need to add more stress to them.
