ANALYSIS

Comcast: Friendlier Attitudes Aren't Enough

Comcast has improved the way it interacts with customers. However, service problems are still the key issue. They take several days or longer to get fixed, and then they are not fixed for good. Recurring problems cause more customer dissatisfaction. So, basically, Comcast may now have nice people to take care of customers, but its customers have to call too often for care due to ongoing problems.

By Jeff Kagan

08/28/14 7:03 AM PT

Comcast has been trying to improve customer care. It has made some headway, but reliability of its services still is a big issue. I like Comcast people. During the last couple of years, their performance has gotten better. However, the quality of Comcast's service is still unreliable, at best, and problems just don't go away.

Think of Comcast as a family-owned company that happens to be the largest cable television company in the industry. It wants to merge with Time Warner Cable, making it even larger and more powerful.

This is a family-owned business, started by Ralph Roberts and now run by his son Brian Roberts. It may be a family business, but it happens to be gigantic. It started small -- then, about a decade ago, it acquired AT&T Broadband, becoming the largest. The Roberts family has done an incredible job building the company for shareholders, and they can be very proud.

Put Employees First

On the other hand, Comcast has grown and changed over time -- both for better and for worse. The problem is, rather than focusing on the workers and the customers, it focuses on the investors. So, generally speaking, investors are happy -- but that does not spread to customers and workers.

Herb Kelleher, previous CEO and cofounder of Southwest Airlines, had it right. Put your employees first, he said. If you take care of them, then they will take good care of you. Then your customers will come back, and your shareholders will like that.

I think Comcast could improve dramatically with a dose of Kelleher thinking.

The problem started with . . .

Jeff Kagan: What Do AT&T Leadership Changes Mean?

By Jeff Kagan

August 27, 2014 12:25PM   

Tickers Mentioned: T  VZ  CTL  CMCSA  TWC  DTV

AT&T (T)  has enjoyed a very successful run over the last decade. Now the industry and competition is starting to change once again. AT&T sees this and has been making some changes themselves. Let’s explore what changes AT&T is making in leadership and direction going forward and consider the impact on the company and the industry.

AT&T is merging its wireless and business units into one company. That company will be led by Ralph de la Vega, who was the CEO of AT&T Mobility. Glenn Lurie will replace de la Vega and now lead AT&T Mobility. He headed their emerging enterprises and partnerships unit.

Why all the changes?
