    I worked at Time Warner Cable full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free cable services for employees, decent commission structure, generally competent co-workers.

    Cons

    Mandatory sales quotas for technical support agents ("hey, sorry to hear that your DVR died in the middle of your favorite show... could I interest you in 3 free months of HBO?"), management never knew what was going on with anything (in the 7 months I worked there, I had 4 different supervisors and spent nearly a month with no supervisor), draconian attendance policy caused constant churn (before you think I'm exaggerating - being 2 minutes late coming back from a break once per week would get you fired within 6 months if you had absolutely no other attendance issues), constant churn meant you had very few senior people to lean on for support, churn also meant that the company was hemorrhaging money non-stop (cost to train a new rep was roughly equal to one year of that rep's salary) - so they never had money to fix any issues or just have a little fun.

    And this is all before you even have to deal with the drunken, belligerence customers who call screaming at you because they can't order Pay-Per-View when their account is $200 past due. But, that is just part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out of your back side. Treat people like adults and they will, for the most part, behave like adults. Stop forcing your people who are good at doing technical support to be salesmen too. You have an entire department for that - it's called Sales.
