    Plenty of challenge in technical skill, great people to work with, great training.

    Tough to advance. No raises or promotions. Be prepared to work multiple shifts often. Little recognition of hard work. They hire temps for 6 months then fire them to avoid having to give benefits.

    Pros

    Love the culture and people. Benefits are also very good. Job is challenging and most of the time interesting. Lots of room to learn.

    Management is overly agressive. Long hours and lots of overnight work. Training is mostly on the job and expectations are demanding.

    Add additional training and hire more people.

    I worked at Comcast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is fair, vacation days are more than fair, and the people are friendly.

    Cons

    Many of the offices are in bad shape, there are remnants of the "old way of doing business" (dress codes, reluctance towards change, pointless meetings and bureaucracy, etc..), and they definitely put profits above all else.

    Advice to Management

    I understand putting the customer first - it's a great way to make money - but if you want to attract young talent you may want to put some energy into making your employees happy. Start with not having employees work out of dank, old, rundown buildings that were often just repurposed homes.
