Continue to work hard and your accomplishment will make you succeed and successful.
The culture at Comcast is very distinct. Upper management is all older white men and the cable industry in general has a reputation of being a bit of a boys club. I do have to say that efforts at Comcast are being made to diversify (including women) but it feels like more of a PR stunt than anything and it is still very hard to climb the career ladder as a woman in this company. Also - there are a LOT of politics within the company and women don't necessarily help other women (in fact, quite the opposite in some instances). Great performance is not necessarily what gets you promoted - self-promoting and upper management relationship building (aka ass kissing) are (unfortunately) more valued, regardless of your level of competence and work. There is also no regard for work-life balance and no onsite childcare. To get ahead, you're expected to move around the country but there are also often job cuts, which are often political vs. based on work performance.
Meet as many other women as you can. Greet other women as they join.
Never join a company that is in the process of a merger with a larger company. The company was originally TCI Communications sold to AT&T Broadband, then sold to Comcast. The pension account was disabled for those who worked for AT&T Broadband, so we didn't have control over that money and they didn't tell us that it wouldn't earn anymore dividends. In other words, we got screwed out of years of pension pay! Also, this company only pays women to a certain plateau, even though they will assign you management duties and responsibilities. The company doesn't value the loyal employees that helped build the company to the level it is at now. If they decide to do another merger, you could be the next one on the chopping block during their "across board reductions of staff". Then, they hire in contractors so they don't have to pay out benefits and give vacation time.
Be yourself and stand up for your experience
Negotiate like a man. The benefits are amazing, including family and maternity leave.
I've worked here for 32 years, don't take customer complaints personal. Treat customers and fellow workers how you would like to be treated and don't play into any drama in the workplace. Don't date co-workers, don't create drama, work hard and be nice. Benefits are fantastic, leave and vacation time are great. Learn all you can about every aspect of the company. If you want to advance, take on challenges, do all the extra training available, volunteer for anything. Don't complain and whine, it's a job you are being paid for go above and beyond for external and internal customers! Love this place.
Pretty new not sure what to think yet
It is a physical and mental job. I wish I had been more prepared for the men I worked with. Not all men are responsive to a woman doing the same job as them.Some men feel threatened by women doing such a job.
