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.

    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.

    Pros

    Free cable, good healthcare, good experience for the resume to jump to another company

    Cons

    Promotions aren't about the qualitity of work, they are about managers favorites; No respect for work/life balance - constant pressure and manipulation to put in significant amounts of unpaid overtime; Constantly overloaded with more work than one or even two people can handle; Priorities change very frequently and it causes stress and confusion; Inexperienced people given higher responsibilities without help or guidance; Management level responsibilities given without the increase in title or pay that should come with it

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees better or you will continue to see high turnaround in the company. Understand that most people only work to get a paycheck and want a work/life balance. Plan things out better so your reports aren't constantly scrambling to get things done at ridiculous deadlines. Listen to your employees and let them help you form realistic plans for the future.
