I have been working at Cablevision Systems as a contractor

Pros

location and flexibility of working hours, work life balance for the times in life when our priorities and focus shifts to family and spending more time at home

Cons

Company lacks good leadership and long term vision. Projects, initiatives and budget are managed as fire drills. every week consists of the emergency dejour. Organizational silos and self interest drives decisions. Poor employee performance and little innovation. Cablevision is 10 year late coming to the party they need to wake up and move fast if they want to stay around longer.

Advice to Management

Focus on innovation, reward business like thinking. Reevaluate all consulting vendors, bring in new vendor that are eager to accommodate lower rates. Performance manage employees and move them out of the comfort jobs. Need to shake out the company and bring in new spirit and drive. Create incentives and goals for cross company performance. Good luck.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong core business, strong cash flow, willing to spend capital on new projects, strong competitive position, good technology. Good benefits, generally good people in the ranks.

    Cons

    Outdated organizational and management structure. Too focused on old business model. Bad bets on no-core businesses. Management too focused on not making certain mistakes and unwilling to take broad product based risks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from outside as much as inside.
