    I worked at Cablevision Systems

    Pros

    Good benefits. Free services aside from equipment; if your area doesn't have cable vision you get somewhat of an allowance for your cable/internet/phone. Work hours aren't bad. Pay is good and there are yearly reviews.

    Cons

    Never received any real training, kind of just got thrown into the job after a few days of shadowing other employees. Some high volume stores appeared to be understaffed.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits , team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Favoritism, and unethical practices. By employees overlooked by mngmt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have goals that are set , follow thru .Check on those that over-exceed them. Not only them but their mngmt. and don't be blinded by quantity look for quality. Only ones that suffer is the, Company Reputation and those that play by the book and any new recruits that appreciate the opportunity.

    Pros

    Great that you get free cable

    Cons

    Micro managed; no room for growth. Coworker blew whistle on manager and got fired 6 months later -- then the entire department was called in by HR and questioned. We had no idea what was going on. From top management to sales support, it is a culture of kill or be killed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just quit - you don't know how to manage
