    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.

    Team work is great and training. Awesome atmosphere with a great pay plan structure along with bonuses and employee benefits. Made many friends for a lifetime and the experience made me a better skilled salesman

    Not many - keep up the good work. The hiring process is tough but it helps filter out the quitters. The training is located far away.

    Keep coaching and sharing knowledge

    Pros

    The benefits are out of this world and the opportunities are endless when available. They provide an array of benefit for full time employees.

    Cons

    Stability is rocky and training is given by unqualified individuals that were completely unprofessional. It’s not right to train management with non-management together.

    Be fair with all your employees.

    Pros

    For 9 years this was a great job. I learned a lot in those years. No supervisor hanging over your every move (very self-sufficient job). Met new and interesting customers every day. Able to take truck home if you desire. Pay and benefits were very good. Made some life long friends with my coworkers. When Altice bought the Company all that changed. Eventually I accepted a buy-out.

    Cons

    New owner's treat employees like cattle.
