    I have been working at Comcast full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Excellent health, dental and vision. Great PTO. Moved to casual dress code in the middle of my time there so that was a big bonus. I was fortunate to work for a few different managers that were generally good to work for --- one of them eventually entered the political battles (which I speak about in the cons section).

    Cons

    Not every manager is worth working for. Some will demand that you work crazy hours. Others are much more reasonable. Also, the politics is not pleasant. Once managers reach the Director level, the politics can get ugly because there are so few VP slots to move up to. Many great employees were driven out or laid off due to these political battles internally. Some VP had the bright idea to offshore a lot of software development. Not only will not go well for the company, lots of folks got laid off. Comcast will regret the loss of this talent in 305 years when they bring most of that work back in-house.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the political battles. It is tiresome to deal with as a technologist. I'm supposed to be there to build great things, not dodge political bullets. Offshoring highly technical work is a bad idea. Bring it back in house before you lose your edge.

    Pros

    Fast-growing company with a progressive outlook, can-do attitude and eagerness to innovate and be at the forefront of the industry.

    Cons

    As with any big company, there are many teams to navigate and sometimes competing priorities to overcome.
