Pros

Comcast takes care of its employees from courtesy cable service to affordable benefits to a great employee stock purchase plan.

Cons

Comcast has a very flat corporate structure making it hard to move up the corporate ladder, especially when certain departments prevent transfer to other departments for a better position.

    I worked at Comcast full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work can be engaging if you like what you're doing. It is also possible to move around a bit if there are other available positions that peak your interest. Beware if you work outdoors, though--it gets very hot and very cold in Chicago.

    Cons

    You can become expendable too easily. If a company wide project comes along, it is no problem for the company to lay off a bunch of people to secure the required capital. Before buying up new properties, networks, ect., it should be remembered that employees have homes and families to care for. The company should wait 'till it can actually afford to fund these projects.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They are the ones actually dealing with the day to day issues, and know what they deal with, and what they need.
