    I have been working at Cablevision Systems

    Pros

    I met some nice folks there --

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers -- some who have been there for years -- completely untrained and dedicated to protecting their jobs over making decisions that would benefit the company. Simple day-to-day tasks are made impossible due to horrible people empowered who make themselves important by constantly creating mountains out of small hills. If you're not one of the "in" people -- and since they do not have set processes and an established success criteria -- managers start bad mouthing you behind closed doors and they don't have the decency to at least let you know that they are having an issue with your approach to your work -- even though there is no set process. One-on-one sessions are ignored and cancelled constantly...so -- no training...no constructive criticism --

    The politics of the place is horrible and makes being productive almost impossible --

    My advice -- don't do it -- if you're unemployed -- keep looking...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wouldn't waste my time -- they need to clean house if they're going to try to survive the eventual demise of the Cable industry as we know it. Look at the Knicks...look at MSG -- need I say any more?

    Pros

    Overtime was usually always available during storms with triple pay incentives.
    Opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    Sometimes the opportunities to grow were dependent on who you knew.
    Some supervisors were very childish.
    Had 1 supervisor tell me that she didn't like me..
