    Pros

    The parent company offered really good benefits, nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Too top heavy with management who seemed to prefer to stay out of touch

    Advice to Management

    Roll up your sleeves and get in the front lines! Front line staff has tons of insight.

    Pros

    Fantastic people, they go to great lengths to make sure they hire talent to move the business forward. Even though you may think cable is an evil empire it really is a family business that is very people-centric

    Cons

    Complex business with growing competition. Archaic and restrictive systems that takes forever to add new technology. It holds them back to remain nimble and competitive

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on your technology restrictions. If you can't add the great new technology to your systems you will be left in the dust

    Pros

    Great Benefits, 6% 401k match, massive discounts on cable internet, home security etc. company stock plan makes you alot of money.

    Cons

    Massive internal changes happening every 1-2 years led by corporate. Many people having to reapply for their jobs every 2 years so not much job security and almost growth opportunity whatsoever

    Advice to Management

    local management is great unfortunately the corporate machine has taken over and alot of good people with experience get let go during the bi annual re apply process.

    Pros

    Nearly Free cable, can't really think of anything else

    Cons

    Ad Products are subpar and don't actually work. Delivery and reporting metrics are third party generated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. You're bringjng more budget to the marketplace and once it's allocated it's incredibly easy to switch pitch and take it away

    Great benefits: 401K, healthcare, time off

    Favoritism given to male employees. Women are typically passed up for promotions.

    Pay your staff fairly! You're making money with the help of your staff, your staff should be making a livable wage.

    Pros

    You'll work with a lot of smart, hard-working people. They are flexible with work-life balance, and you get free cable and internet from Comcast.

    Cons

    It's very political with upper management. If you are not in the right circle, it can have a significant impact on your ability to advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer path to career growth, and need to clean out some of the upper level management before they accomplish the changes they are really looking for. Constant reorgs of departments and commission structures won't do that.
