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

Pros

Comcast Metro Fiber Division is cutting edge technology. Being able to offer Fiber to the customer's prem is the future infrastructure of technology. You can make good money as long as you are hitting your quota. Base Salary is nice and Engineering support is fantastic. Benefits are fair and vacation time is set up really nice. You also get free cable (All Channels) as an employee.

Cons

CRM reporting is demanding and monotonous. Limited Footprint and not being able to sell cross states is a hindrance. Limited Management opportunities with-in the same division for all star Sales Reps. 6 month learning curve to understand Comcast process and procedures.

Advice to Management

Hire you all star sales reps as Managers with in the same division. Stop passing up proven All Star reps to hire candidates that have no clue about Comcast Fiber. CRM reporting should be mainstreamed and simplified. 50% of the reporting is not accurate and only being done to fulfill the quota requirement.

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

    Pros

    The company is a very strong, successful competitor with multiple areas of growth. Cable companies are known for moving at the technological pace of molasses and while that can be an issue at Comcast they really are trying to stay up with the times and even leading in some areas. They are keenly aware of their competition. Working there is generally fun and offers a good work-life balance and decent opportunity for growth. They provide good cable and internet benefits to full-time employees, generous stock options, compensation, education support, and equipment enable you to do your job well.

    Cons

    Management does not always provide good leadership or transparency. It's easy to get lost in a sea of 100k+ employees, so you really have to work to make a name for yourself, which can be difficult for more introverted personalities. There is not always good product direction for technology employees, and an unusually high number of projects end up getting cancelled mid-stream or even right at launch time. Inter-department politics tend to detract from results, as groups sometimes get territorials instead of working for the larger good.

    Advice to Management

    Continue building a supportive, open daily working environment, and share more direction, insight, and opportunity with employees. See technology as the future of the company, not just a necessary evil.
