    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company, great benefits, pay structure is average, holiday bonus, investment opportunities, and parties are great motivators. Internal opportunities are great, (if not intercepted). The core-foundation of the company is very good.

    Cons

    High-School like behaviors amongst supervisors/managers and above (some). Bullying - type of environment, gossipy, sabotage and misery is infectious and evident throughout some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good or Bad, Karma has everyone’s address.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you can withstand the tremendous pressure they put on you, you can make a good amount of money to be made. great benefits and perks. Free cable, internet and phone, including all premium channels is great. They reward top performers.

    Cons

    Very Micro-Managed. Everything you do is watched like big brother over your shoulders, with constant pressure to do better. I have seen people go to the hospital for the amount of pressure they put on you in sales position. but if you can withstand the pressure and move up to management position, you can have a great career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more employee friendly. stop the micro-management and the tremendous amount of pressure you put on people. A friendly work environment will produce much better results and employees who last longer and not burnout in 6 months.
