No nonsense and data driven approach to sales.
Commercial Sales Assistant (Current Employee), Chanhassen MNAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Freedom from micro managing
Cons: Pay caps
To sell you need fresh and appropriate information to properly manage your markets.

Getting sales data and market penetration metrics to those that need them as they need them has cultivated a challenging and exciting work environment.

Many solutions required out of the box thinking and on the fly research to learn new and creative ways to find the answers that are so urgently needed.

Consumer Reports bottom of the list worst company
Just an Employee (Current Employee), In one of the reqionsJuly 31, 2015
Pros: Mediacoms commitment to non-major markets
Cons: Middle mangement that needs to be refreshed
The executive management in New York all seem capable and vested in the companies success. The management in the locations around the country are sadly to say the crux of the embarrassment. Those that – more... have been with the company or merged into after years of affiliation operate with a warped paradigm. Rocco is a terrific CEO, although he seems to be filtered out of the day to day circumstances that his middle management, senior supervisors and team supervisors, are sabotaging his investment.

A recommendation would be to have all of these people get on the phones, at the front counters, going to customers homes for 30 days of reality training and realization. Get them back to the basics of just who Mediacom's customers are and what is need day to day to get the satisfaction issues off the bottom of the charts. – less

Customer Service Representative/Call Center (Former Employee), Red Oak, IAJuly 16, 2015
Pros: Nice lunch break, staff was nice, good benefits
Cons: The upset people
Answering calls, questions, and making orders for the technicians to come set up or fix any equipment was the majority of my day. The hardest part of my job was when people calling in were so unhappy but the most enjoyable part was when I could help get them on the right track to the issue being fixed, If not by fixing it myself.

Pros: Get to take the truck home daily.

No room for advancement with long hours
Service Technician (Current Employee), Columbus, GAJune 12, 2015
Pros: Get to take company vehicle home, discounted cable bill
Cons: Not enough time to do each job thoroughly, equipment shortages
I'm the senior service technician at Mediacom. A typical day consists of 12-13 service calls within a 10 hour day. The pay is not the greatest, and equipment shortages hinder your ability to provide good customer service.

loved the work but management was a joke and you have no life besides cable tv
system technician (Former Employee), Preston, MNMay 27, 2015
Pros: interesting work
Cons: upper and middle management with a lack of personal service.
I worked for media companies for nearly ten years. Worked my way up from an installer to a tech ops supervisory position. All I can say is that bigger is not always better. Upper management was a distant – more... joke. With a new York attitude while trying to run small town systems. They really have no idea what small town subscribers demand. They need to find good people, pay them well and do whatever it takes to keep them. In my ten years I watched over 30 technicians get hired and then terminate employment. That says very little about any company. And people to them are just a number. To bad because the work and technical aspects of this field still interest me today. – less

Worst company
Installer Tech (Current Employee), Moline, ILMay 13, 2015
This is the worst company to work for. There is no real management and they only care about one thing there. You get over worked, under paid and expect more out of you than is humanly possible.
