Pros

Very friendly environment, lots of good people who are also very competent.
Flexible timings, work from home.
specially in comcast interactive media group.

Cons

It has lots of unit, so you can't expect the same work environments and competency among all the groups. The visa lawyers and the HR play safe (so, even if you qualify for EB2 category for your GC process, they will keep you in EB3 category, unless you are some manager/director).

Advice to Management

Please change the old practices. 10 years back a guy from India/China would have gotten his GC in 5 years (in EB3) category. Now it would take him 15-16 years, Do you expect him to be with you for so long, even if he enjoys working with you.
Get competent lawyers and encourage/push them to do what is best for your employees not the other way (i.e. push employees to make lawyers happy)

    Pros

    Comcast is a wonderful place to work if you're looking for professional development. They have a wonderful tuition reimbursement program that allowed me to get my degree and I learned a lot of new and useful skills.

    Cons

    It is very easy to get lost in a sea of faces and the corporate culture.

    Pros

    For the most part, very smart and friendly co-workers. Good focus on "the big picture" and growing market share through new products.

    Cons

    Very heavy-duty office politics; sometimes people don't want to hear about problems/issues; it's a "who you know" kind of company.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time "on the shop floor" when you have a couple of minutes.
