Approves of CEO

Pros

interesting work
great people
pretty nice office
good benefits
fair salary
fun to see Kabletown referred to on 30 Rock and you get the inside joke

Cons

- bad understanding of resource management and staffing
- little real product management
- shifting priorities all the time
- predictable busy times are not staffed for and then you get to work 60 hours a week
- small raises yearly from Comcast due to slow economy (all the while they are buying NBC)
- lots of long term employees who are all super burned out

Advice to Management

listen to people's complaints
The exec team are not the only people who are smart - stop thinking you are the smartest

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Free cable and Internet
    If you like to eat they like to feed you.

    Cons

    They promote on the "good ol' boy system"
    They will fire you at the drop of a hate
    They are ADA compliant facility wise but will fire you for a disability.
    They do not practice what they preach.

    Advice to Management

    How about taking into account years of service and actually promote those deserving. If someone has a disablity actually care. Remember people first not your pockets first.

    "Interesting problems, held by back monolith legacy contracts"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    There are a ton opportunities to work on projects that directly impact Comcast from day to day, and working hard will get you immediate recognition.

    Cons

    Technically the company is held back by legacy products which make it difficult to push things too far in a modern direction.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of developing next generation solutions to work within the existing ecosystem, build products separate and transition to them over time. Don't be afraid to cut the cord with legacy entirely.
