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

Pros

Free cable/internet/phone. There are a handful of corporate discounts that employees receive.

Cons

I worked in the Corporate IT department for over five years. If there is any culture at all in the company, it is a "you are nothing more than your job function" culture. There is little to no chance for advancement, and the ability to change positions is largely based on your current role, nothing more. Raises are hard to come by and are usually less than 3%. Compensation is based on "pay grades," and it is possible to reach the top of a pay grade and not receive future raises. Training is also only based on your current role, and you will not be approved for training outside your job function.

There is a clear cut hierarchy based on titles, and you are expected to respect or even fear a person's title. There are a lot of bad or poorly trained managers throughout the company.

Advice to Management

The company is run poorly from the loud-mouth owner down to the lowliest intern. It feels less like a fortune 500 company and more like a utility. Employees would benefit from a little appreciation from time to time.
