For employees seeking association with the undisputed leader of all things cable, Comcast is the obvious choice. With its acquisition of NBCU closing earlier this year, the biggest guy on the cable block just got bigger – and that means more opportunities for its employees to take on new challenges, make more money, enjoy more perks and generally just bask in the glow of a company strengthened by a powerful combination of distribution and content muscle. Oh yeah – that’s the stuff. Furthermore, Comcast continues to offer some of the best benefits available, as well as stellar development initiatives. Those include its Comcast Talent performance management program, which helps employees map out annual goals; its Comcast University program to help employees learn new skills that can supercharge their careers; and even an up to $5,750 stipend for employees who want to pursue professional learning programs. Comcast is also known as one of the most diversity conscious companies in cable. Point of fact: Of 12,499 Comcasters classified as a supervisor or above at the end of 2010, about 16 percent are African- American, nearly 7 percent are Hispanic and nearly 4 percent are Asian. Oh, and another perk: Free cable services for workers in homes passed by the MSO. That’s almost worth the price of admission right there.
