Pros

If you apply yourself and promote communication between your peers and your management team, there is opportunity to excel. The benefits are excellent. I truly believe the intent by management is to do their best by their employees to make certain they are taken care of.

Cons

A little bit of confusion during regionalization. Too many people do not know how to balance work with their life. In a day and age where technology is keeping us in touch with everything going on, some people do not know how to let go of work and they generally don't realize that working a lot does not mean working better.

Advice to Management

Communicate, communicate, communicate.

    Pros

    Free cable services and great medical benefits

    Cons

    Old boy network still the way that business is done. Speak about corporate rules and requirements but West Columbia SC will do their own thing. Often, not to the benefit of those that have less than 10 years. They do not value those with college degrees or those that may have received experience from other industries/companies

    Advice to Management

    Just because that is the way things were done 15 years ago or just because Jane or John has 20+ years and nearing retirement is no reason to not hold them accountable in evolving or changing the culture. Additionally, why is some areas not racially diversed? Why are the gunt jobs - i.e., call center - are filled with female minorities 90% of the time but when hiring for other departments are done from outside, 90% of the time, the new employee is white? How come management make-up statistics does not reflect the statistics of that department's racial or sec make-up?

    Pros

    Feed the family -- if you need more keep looking.

    Cons

    I've worked for Palmer Cable, Colony, Contiental, Media One, and Time Warner over a period of 16 years and in the same region. Time Warner was by far the worst -- and that's saying something, Palmer Cable didn't give us trucks with a/c while working in the 2nd hottest place in the country, 120 days of over 100 degrees. Death Valley runs a little hotter. Between these 5 different Cable Companies Time Warner puts profit ahead of anything else, even in the most mundane of things, cable fittings, using the cheapest available. Nevermind a better and previously used fitting would save money in the future with reduced service calls and repair. This extends to their workforce, doing all to increase production while still paying a low wage and poor beneifits -- stock options, about 30 over 3 years, Media One gave us 313 over 3 years. It's a mute point anyway given the poor value of Time Warner stock. Even after a Employee Survey it took over 2 years to see a slight increase in pay. Maybe, after a major brain drain they finally got the hint. I worked with 6 people with a combined 79 years of experience who left within 1 year. Don't look to move up as management is rooted deep. They aren't going anywhere, so neither are you.

    You get what you pay for.
