I worked at Time Warner Cable full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good compensation and nice place to work if you can handle constant change. Co-workers were easy to get along with and politics a mid mgmnt were at a minimum.

Cons

Don't expect to have any interaction with senior or executive management. They rarely make any effort to share their vision with any mid or lower level managers. Changes happen suddenly but are rarely thought out which caused unnecessary chaos.

Advice to Management

Get to know your employees outside of your Town Hall meetings!

    Pros

    Health Plan, Savings on Cable Services, and Pension.

    Cons

    This Company has no Direction. Though alot of money and time is spent to present the idea that they do. Levels of Management are apparently dis-jointed from eachother and from the reality of what goes on with the Front Line and those that really represent TWC. Senior Management doesn't care about how people are impacted when they make they frequent and random decisions. Unfortunately, there is not much year to year pay growth. There is a culture of every man for themselves most of the time, and they seem to be perpetually understaffed yet, continue to demand more. Employee morale is very low, and there is much less communication about anything than there has been in the past.

    On-going Training is poor across the board and there seems to be little to no concern for providing good service, and in turn, enjoting a decent reputation as a Brand.

    Everything is statistic driven, and a The quantity over quality attittude prevails. Many people in Management would not be able to perform well in the positions below them, given the unrealistic goals in place, which is unimpressive for those who are expecting a knowledgeable Leader.

    There is a frustrating culture of only being reactive. Issues don't seem to be resolved until they are severe, and any sense of urgency to correct the smallest large scale issues will be stifled by the long process of progress.

    Advice to Management

    Spend one day in the shoes of those you make decisions for to gain better insight.

    I have been working at Time Warner Cable full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    co-workers are nice
    work locations are favorable

    Cons

    outdated processes and systems
    really bad management, mico management even at VP levels
    you are just a number, replaceable by another number
    too many directors - directors only have 2 employees to manage leads to micro managing
    strategy constantly changing

    Advice to Management

    hire better VPs
    treat employees better, my VP yells at people all the time I think just because he can and that management style trickles down to the directors
