    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.
