I have been working at Comcast full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A great benefit package for a private company. Good middle managers and a "family" atmosphere. Company is going places and doing well. Decent pay.

Cons

Despite the company having an excellent balance sheet, they are stingy with funds for training or headcount. My position is understaffed by a factor of 2:1 or more. This results in problems for the customers and business areas. In their defense, this is a particular problem with IT where snake oil salesmen with Cloud computing and management pandering Gartner group make unrealistic claims so they think anything is possible.)

Advice to Management

Be ahead of the curve on IT rather than following industry trends and claims from 10 years ago promising magical results that are not happening. Listen to your customers and business areas.

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

    Pros

    I made some income and was not unemployed. discounted cable and internet

    Cons

    The Comcast management uses antiquated systems for tracking, obtaining sales leads, managing people, and payroll, which is ironic being a hi-tech company
    No consideration fr human needs, no synergy between departments or even interdepartmental personnel, disregard for others time, over work employees to disgruntlement, and an overall feeling of dismay, apathy

    Advice to Management

    Higher better managers with management skills revamp the whole system for efficiency
