Excellent training program, great benefits, awesome people!
Tech Support (Current Employee) –  St. Petersburg, FLMarch 6, 2018
The training is done in a very systematic comprehensive manner — 3 weeks of classroom, 2 weeks OJT with mentors. During the first day, information on security, business practices, comp services (free cable and internet) benefits, and opportunity for career growth are covered.The trainers, mentors, and managers that get you through the first five weeks are incredibly intelligent and caring — they WANT you to succeed!
Pros
The people, free coffee, great insurance & retirement
Cons
Takes awhile to earn leave time, PTO a little less than what other companies are doing.

Internet/Phone Tech Specialist (Current Employee) –  St. Petersburg, FLJuly 19, 2018
As far as my experience goes at corporate call centers this is the lowest on my list. From the first day that I walk through the doors of spectrum there was a lack of competency, from the staffing the is not sure whether there is a meeting at five or not to the lack of managerial assistance resulting in one or two coaching sessions in a two month period. Though it is nice to not have to pay for the internet it is not worth the malestrom of stress and confusion that this company has sweeping through its halls.
Pros
complementary internet\phone and cable
Cons
managed attrociously

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  West Columbia, SCJuly 19, 2018
◾Customer Service Skills: The customer is always right. You will need to be able speak in a friendly way to customers and potential customers, listening to their needs and helping communicate options for them.
◾Communication Skills: You will need to speak to customers about a product's different features, and answer any questions they might have.
◾Flexibility: You might have to work long hours, nights or weekends.
◾Persistence: Not every customer is going to be a sale. Being able to bounce back if you lose a sale will be key for this job.

The company was better when it was Time Warner Cable
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 19, 2018
The company was a more organized when it was Time Warner Cable. There are too many changes happening in a short period of time without any consideration for employees with families and other obligations. You’re expected to work nights, weekends and holidays. Since the merge there is no opportunity for growth or advancement in my department. If you post out for a different position within the company you’re expected to keep the same pay and do more work. Also, if you apply for a position you will never hear back from the recruiter. They usually extend the courtesy to at least send an email declining the application. I applied for a position last October and never heard from anyone and also in April, nothing.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Schedule, no opportunity for advancement, unorganized, poor training

Vendor Manager/Credit Services Specialist (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 19, 2018
I love working for Spectrum because of the benefits. I believe that since we merged, the culture has changed dramatically. It often feels that you are not cared about or just a body in a seat.

Regional Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJuly 19, 2018
I have been in sales a long time. When I started here I was told nothing but lies. I think it should be partially blamed on them implementing a new internal system. There are many dishonest people who work here and finger pointing galore. This place is time warner with a new coat of paint all over again. Beware!
Pros
Fantastic benefits
Cons
Lies, micro management, finger pointing

Good Management, lively employees and exceptional integrity
Greeter/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Eagle Pass, TXJuly 18, 2018
Spectrum workers are bound to their policies like a duck likes water. Speaking generally, less that an average amount of customers will be outraged at the notion of following company policy and, for no just cause. The office atmosphere is nice, including the overabundance of snacks and refreshments for morale, I guess?
Pros
Free lunch (sparingly)
Cons
none

Work in heat or rain. Run cable through attics with temperature up to 130 degrees. Run cable under houses with dirt and dead rats and animals. Hard strain on your body. Pushed to work fast with no errors.

Regional Operations Analyst (Current Employee) –  Ontario, CAJuly 18, 2018
I have been with Spectrum since they were Time Warner Cable. Since the merger of TWC and Charter, the company culture has evolved greatly into a more fluid structure; that is, we don't get communication about what is going on until last minute, and then we have to adapt immediately. Communication about vision and direction is always changing, and about half of the time we hear those changes. People hoard information, and there is a more tense atmosphere of uncertainty that now pervades the company.
Pros
High pay, good benefits
Cons
workload, company culture, advancement opportunities, communication

Management Very Flexible
Regional Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCJuly 18, 2018
Management is very flexible at Spectrum. Although you have the ability to work remote most of the day is spent in the office. It's a good environment to develop your skill sets. Most of the training is hands on and there have been classes offered outside of the office for additional training. Overall it's a great place to work
Pros
Free Lunch, Ability to work remote from time to time
Cons
Ability to not be able to work remove all the time.
