Pros

It a great company to work when it come to getting exposure to new technologies.

Cons

However comcast has a culture similar to that of nepotism.

Advice to Management

The culture of the company come down not up, when you create a work environment that require that you spend more time watching your back instead of doing your job is a Recipe for failure. However I still think the company is a good place to work.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    stable company, people still need entertainment. Discounted cable. Health benefits are on par with similar large companies. Depending on which group and who your leader is, communication, work/life balance might be decent.

    Cons

    Folks who have earn the right & deserve promotions are overlooked. Previous employees who left comcast to work somewhere else & then return to comcast within a year or so suddenly jump at least a couple levels higher. The screening process as well as interview process is skewed. Depending on which group and who your leader is, some senior directors are just plain incompetent, discriminate, and act as a bully.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and let's act like an advance company, technology is evolving and we have to evolve to keep up with it. Change your mentality and recognize talent.

    Former Employee - Vice President in Philadelphia, PA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Free cable! Plus a chance to change how entertainment is consumed through developing products that can reach millions of users. People are generally good-or rather, the good ones are good enough to compensate for the "lifers" who have been promoted (far) beyond their competence.

    Cons

    Way too many politics at the corporate level, and gross incompetence is never punished in any way. It's nearly impossible to be fired, compensation doesn't reflect performance, and promotions seem to occur on a timetable instead of because of skill or achievemtn.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people who can talk a good game, and start hiring people who have relevant experience and passion. The number of people hired on the basis of a single good interview (shmooze) but without any relevant experience is criminal.
