2000 Jobs at Comcast — Why Work at Comcast?

Hard to believe but Com­cast, with $80 Bil­lion dol­lars in rev­enues, was found­ed in Tupe­lo Mississippi.

In 1963, Ralph J. Roberts in con­junc­tion with his two busi­ness part­ners, Daniel Aaron and Julian A. Brod­sky, pur­chased Amer­i­can Cable Sys­tems as a cor­po­rate spin-off from its par­ent, Jer­rold Elec­tron­ics, for US $500,000. At the time, Amer­i­can Cable was a small cable oper­a­tor in Tupe­lo, Mis­sis­sip­pi, with five chan­nels and 12,000 cus­tomers.  Com­cast was even an own­er of Muzak fran­chis­es, the founders of “ele­va­tor music”.

Com­cast, orig­i­nal­ly just a  cable com­pa­ny, is now an $80 Bil­lion plus com­pa­ny that owns NBC/Universal which includes the Tele­mu­n­do broad­cast net­works, tele­vi­sion pro­duc­tion oper­a­tions, tele­vi­sion sta­tion groups, Uni­ver­sal Pic­tures and Uni­ver­sal Parks and Resorts.

Com­cast with X1 is the Future

X1 is the sys­tem they are bet­ting will secure a new gen­er­a­tion of cable lovers and put all the “cable is dead” chat­ter to bed.  Think of it like an advanced cable box — one that finds the shows you want using voice com­mands via its remote.

Cable box­es are not what dri­ves X1, it’s the cloud that does and it can be accessed from your phone and tablet.

X1 is a cross between an advanced TV guide and a vir­tu­al assis­tant, and Com­cast thinks it will com­pete with the likes of Ama­zon’s Alexa-pow­ered Echo and Apple’s Siri-pow­ered Apple TV.

X1 is to be the “aggre­ga­tor of aggre­ga­tors,” to tie togeth­er your cable pack­age and oth­er ser­vices like Net­flix.  Com­cast wants to be your gate­way to entertainment.

So What do Comcast’s Employ­ees think of Work­ing there? 

66% of them would rec­om­mend Com­cast to their friends and 79% approve of Bri­an Roberts, the CEO.

Some com­ments from Glass­door include:

“Great place to work with great ben­e­fits”, “Fan­tas­tic work life bal­ance at this loca­tion and oth­er loca­tions I have worked”, “Ben­e­fits are good com­pa­ny vehi­cle free cable”

“Work­ing at Com­cast has giv­en me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to devel­op myself; take the time to grow and learn, and that was real­ly impor­tant to me dur­ing the time in my life when I joined the com­pa­ny. If you have the dri­ve and ambi­tion, there are a ton of ways in which you can grow into a leader if that’s what you want to be.”

“Telling peo­ple you work at Com­cast trig­gers 2 typ­i­cal respons­es: 1) A big hatred rant on cus­tomer ser­vice 2) A how do I get my foot in the door?”
