Pros

It's more of a family run business than a corporate environment. We are more a part of the big picture than a small segment of the business and tend to work across channels. The cost of benefits are very inexpensive compared to other large companies. The 401k plan is a 1 to 1 match up to 6% of your contribution. There is an employee stock plan that allows you to purchase stock at a 15% discount. The perks of being in the entertainment business is that many events are sponsered and hence free tickets are available to employees on a regular basis.

Cons

The pay could be a little higher, but then again it is offset by the low cost of benefits and friendly working atmosphere. Compared to other large corporations, the pay could be bumped up a bit. It is known throughout the ranks that they do not pay as well as other companies, but on the good side, the employees don't really complain. The main reason is the great benefits and fringes. I really don't have anything bad to say about the company and so to use up the 100 words I am going to keep typing this response until all the words are used up.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work, but look into consolidating some of the decentralized functions. It seems that every location has an accounting team, warehouse team, etc. I believe some of these functions could be more centralized thus increasing the bottom line.

    Pros

    Great industry where product evolution and change is constant. Oppportunity for growth is there for over-acheivers. They demonstrate diversity in promotions and hiring. Salary and benefits are industry leading.

    Cons

    High level of micro-management. Too many layers of management slow down decision making and any major decisions require way too many signatures to move forward. Capital investment in competitive markets is reactive, not pro-active.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service, first, last and always. Dump Cabledata (DST) billing system it causes more customer service issues than any other issue. Incentives should focus on market share more and cash-flow less.


  2. "Comcast is a fair reasonable place to work."
