    I worked at Comcast full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Despite corporate reputation, the company treats employees well
    - If you land in a good spot, learning opportunities are limitless and you're surrounded by smart people
    - Company makes internal transfers easy
    - Work flexibility (WFH, hours, etc) are remarkable (in the right org)
    - Technology is bleeding edge, despite the behemoth nature of the tech landscape
    - Smart people are everywhere, and its easy to forget amidst the daily challenges
    - Excellent immigration support
    - Great benefits (virtually free cable/internet/phone), solid 401k match, good ESPP, and excellent discount programs that can save over $5k per year on regular expenses

    Cons

    - Company is generally stingy when it comes to pay packages. This is changing, but older teams tend to haggle a lot
    - Between a mix of smart, average and terrible people (employees+Contractors), one tends to get lost in the minor battles that can overshadow the larger goal of making the most of a company with unlimited resources.
    - Middle Leadership - Many many questionable leadership appointments. Good people arent always good leaders. The loudest and noisiest arent always effective
    - Given a large organization, anything outside of the tech shops is not a great place to be.
    - Some facilities tend to be poorly maintained and crowded

    Advice to Management

    1 - Appointing confrontational folks to leadership positions is dangerous. While temporarily effective, it sows seeds of permanent damage to organizational values
    2 - Suffocating people with work, especially when earnings are consistently good, is bad business practice
    3 - Teach leaders to recognize leadership as a responsibility, not a privilege. Younger folks starting out in their careers soak up everything around them, including bad habits perpetuated by bad leaders
    4 - The new focus on customers is good, but barely enough. The piecemeal solutions are responsible for Comcast's poor reputation, and the current strategy is not aggressive enough
    5 - Hire younger folks more aggressively and incubate a learning environment. Rotational programs that allow young professionals to spend 6 months in different parts of the business can create astonishingly good leaders
    6 - Continue to expand work life balance programs. The intent is clear, that Comcast values its workforce, and is a worthy investment
    7 - Return 401K match to 6%
