    "Altice Killed A Great Company"

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cablevision Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    While the Dolan family was involved, Cablevision was a fantastic company to work for. Many of us dedicated our entire professional careers to the company in exchange for great pay, platinum level benefits, and outstanding employee recognition.

    Cons

    As soon as Altice started sniffing around, everything changed. Once the purchase was made, the entire culture changed for the worse. Promises were broken. Thousands of loyal employees were unceremoniously let go or forced out. Customer service standards went out the window. I don't recognize the company anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting profits before people. People are what made Cablevision a great company.

    Pros

    The company worked hard to keep morale high in their employees with competitions, recognition events, family days, etc. Benefits and pay were excellent.

    Cons

    A rigorous job that required a constant acceptance of verbal abuse from customers and pressure to remain above quota requirements; both to be expected.
