I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time for more than a year

Pros

commision is good if you are goal oriented and a big time competitor. you can make very good money with no experience

Cons

policies change too much. once you have your commision structure down pack they change it so you have to learn a new system and when you almost learn the new system they will add a new one.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

just use one system and stick to it stop making it difficult. its a great place to work other than that.

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent training and sales support

    Cons

    A lot of people have a big problem with the public image of the owners of the company. You have to go into unsavory neighborhoods and knock doors until 9PM, all year long.
    You get paid on installs the following month. Poor service at installation cost me a bunch of sales due to customer cancellation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't use subcontractors for win back installs.

    I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Paycheck shows up on time, Free cable and Internet access, work is not very demanding at all.

    Cons

    Projects cancelled all over the place, then reopened, then cancelled again. No direction from management. Communication between management layers is non existent. Very little chance for promotion. Anything involving managerial approval take 5 times as long as it would under normal circumstances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some extremely talented internal people, but the structure of your company makes it impossible for them to help you. Do more to develop your internal talent, and trust them.
