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

Pros

Excellent training and sales support

Cons

A lot of people have a big problem with the public image of the owners of the company. You have to go into unsavory neighborhoods and knock doors until 9PM, all year long.
You get paid on installs the following month. Poor service at installation cost me a bunch of sales due to customer cancellation.

Advice to Management

Don't use subcontractors for win back installs.

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

    Pros

    Paycheck shows up on time, Free cable and Internet access, work is not very demanding at all.

    Cons

    Projects cancelled all over the place, then reopened, then cancelled again. No direction from management. Communication between management layers is non existent. Very little chance for promotion. Anything involving managerial approval take 5 times as long as it would under normal circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    You have some extremely talented internal people, but the structure of your company makes it impossible for them to help you. Do more to develop your internal talent, and trust them.
