Great place to work, long hours
Director, Engineering (Current Employee) –  Greenwood Village, COMarch 24, 2019
Great place to work, great people, but the work days are long. There is an abundance of opportunity and work to go along with it. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with modern technology, and the talented people that comprise the company. The hardest part of the job is meeting all of the demands within reasonable time frames, but with limited staff resources.

Professional Internet and Voice repair (Current Employee) –  St. Petersburg, FLMarch 24, 2019
Staff support from training right on into On the Job training
Leads and Supervisors are very supportive
You cannot fail - they will help you every step of the way to help you succeed and thrive. More experienced agents will point you in the right direction when you get stuck and everyone is very involved in your success. Every day goes by so fast and you never get bored.
Plenty of opportunity to exceed expectations and grow in any direction your heart desires.

Great opportunity to make money.
Inbound Sales Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Morrisville, NCMarch 24, 2019
Since merger, information has not been disseminated from the top-down efficiently. System outages occur frequently effecting the agents commission as they are still expected to take calls.
Pros
Great benefits, free cable

Amazing Benefits and pay, HIGH STRESS
Retention Specialist (Current Employee) –  Auburndale, FLMarch 22, 2019
It is a great place to work, the hours aren't all that great but the benefits and pay are great. It is very high stress from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave and it is not an easy job at all but the pay makes it worth it
Pros
Pad time off, good insurance
Cons
Unrealistic goals, long days, screaming and disrespectful customers

Toxic Environment
Internet and Phone Technical Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLMarch 22, 2019
Bait and switch — started out fun and rewarding through classroom training and OJT — once you’re on the call center floor, there’s no more sense of teamwork, and you become a number to Management. All they care about is handle time and “productive” time — not much for quality and the overall customer experience. Morale is bad, turnover high, and Management doesn’t have a clue. Do yourself a favor and work anywhere but here.
Pros
Free coffe, free cable & internet
Cons
Toxic culture

Fast pace
Call Center Agent IT (Former Employee) –  Maitland, FLMarch 22, 2019
It is a fast pace work environment and not just in the call but in the changing of everything from how they're training you to the software that you're using. But if you are able to keep your cool and keep up with everything your hard work will pay off.

High stress due to abusive customers and unfriendly sups
Billing Representative (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, WAMarch 22, 2019
Pay is good at expense of health and happiness. Co needs to treat employees like customers. They continually do business with customers with charged off or bad debt accounts letting that customer reopen accounts under their and all their friends leading to a very bad business model.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
Work environment too fast paced no time to check email impersonal and sups lazy

Only take this job if you have referrals in construction/government
Account Executive/Sales (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMarch 22, 2019
"Account executive" means outdoor business door to door knocking. They just give you a list of addresses and you show up and try to sell Spectrum services. If you are in a legacy charter area, steer clear. In my market we were at about 80 percent market penetration and had about 50 sales reps. Spectrum will lure you in with their commission structure, but you'll soon realize that its near unobtainable. Some of the best reps on my team that had been there for years were not hitting the monthly quota consistently, and they had multiple referral partners.

If you do not sell a minimum number of services they will not pay you commission at all. When looking at monthly reports, about 60 percent of reps country wide were under the minimum.

Management only care about sales, and for being an outdoor job you will be heavily micromanaged. Two conference calls per day, a two hour weekly meeting, and a 1 hour one on one per week. Management constantly harasses their employees through group chat during the day asking for updates.
Pros
Ramp up commission the first month
Cons
Management, quota, commission, company culture. Door to door

Advancement opportunities limited by work location
Workforce Management System Administrator (Current Employee) –  Rochester, MNMarch 21, 2019
Direct supervisor located in Louisville. Opportunities for advancement or diverse jobs are limited to specific locations. Once a certain level is attained within your specific job role, the only way to advance or move to a different job role is to relocate.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Opportunities for advancement are geographically limited
