    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time

    Pros

    There are some very nice colleagues who have been with the company a long time and genuinely want to help customers and colleagues. These are few and far between though.

    Cons

    Micromanagement of the worst sort - many of the leaders dictate and are not open to new ideas at all. While they talk about wanting to be open and transparent, there are so many political rules and people playing games that its hard to trust them, and then in turn hard to be able to stand in front of your employees and feel like you're giving them the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and promote leaders based on expertise, allow the company to be led by people others can respect - regardless of the sale to Altice.

    Pros

    Cablevision made you feel
    Like family. Altice has a more business mindset. Great to work for if you are new technology minded.

    Cons

    After the purchase Altice was more business minded and counted you as a number not family. If you can't keep up with their goals they let you go.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a very pleasant atmosphere for 24yrs. There were plenty of opportunities to advance your career. Everyone was hard working, but we all enjoyed it because we helped each other when our work was done.

    Cons

    When Altice came in, they started immediately started getting rid of all of the long term workers. I was in the second wave, but did get a severance package.

    Advice to Management

    I would have to say that they made a big mistake when they let go of most of the talented employees. From what I understand, the moral has dropped drastically and they dont have enough experience to get the new system working. I think it would be a good idea for them to hire back some of the essential technicians.

    Pros

    Working at Cablevision was working with family. We were a team. The atmosphere was great to work in. The benefit package was good.

    Cons

    At the end when they decided to sell the atmosphere changed and became very secretive. Communication became closed lip. Employees were stressed and worried.

    Advice to Management

    Open the lines of communications and talk to your employees. Listen to what they have to say. They are overworked and stressed.
