Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Comcast full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Learn people skills, stay on top of emerging technologies, ongoing education, great benefits

Cons

Often time new equipment & products are deployed before decent testing has been done. Front line employees are micro-managed and are often looked at as nothing but numbers there to line the pockets of the highly paid executives

Advice to Management

Put as much effort into paying the little people as you do paying yourself. Quit putting so much importance into the metrics!

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

    Pros

    They offer great benefits (free deluxe cable package is a good thing), nice people who are easy to work with, good management that cares about employees

    Cons

    My job involved doing repetitive mindless tasks and there was a lack of challenge - I didn't feel like I was being pushed to improve or become better at what I did.

    I have been working at Comcast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent and the benefits and other perks are well worth it. Schedules are set and fairly reasonable.

    Cons

    Technicians are out in the feild taking all the blame for anything wrong in the company. Given bad/broken equipment daily to try to deal with in customers home. No real notice of overtime so don't make plans often. Routing is unorganized. Extreme favoritism so get on the right team if possible.

    Advice to Management

    Technicians feel strongly overlooked and used. They are out there everyday making it happen but still treated as the bottom of the list.
