Spectrum Benefits Overview

Working for Spectrum means working to keep people connected to what matters most, helping underserved communities be better connected, and powering the remote and essential workers which were critical in the past two years.

On top of this mission, the employment opportunity here is financially rewarding - with compelling wages, excellent benefits with no increase in cost, and healthy retirement savings options, we provide the security to build a financially sound future.

There are also many opportunities to learn new skills and grow fulfilling and lasting careers. We offer stability in this time of uncertainty.

Employees who live in a Charter service area can receive residential TV, high-speed internet and voice services and have access to Spectrum Mobile. Employees who live outside of a Charter service area can get our Spectrum TV Essentials package and have access to Spectrum Mobile services.

Our employees' financial well-being is just as important as their physical and emotional well-being. With our market-leading company match, for every $1 employees put into their 401(k), we put in $1 up to 6% of their eligible pay. On top of that, most employees receive an additional company contribution equal to 3% of their eligible pay into a Retirement Accumulation Plan.

We're proud to provide employees with some of the best benefits in our industry and we're committed to keeping them affordable so you can keep more of your paycheck. For example, we put up to $1,500 into an account to help you pay for qualified health care expenses and we have absorbed the full cost increase for the medical, dental and vision coverage for 8 years in a row.

We're also proud of the ways our employees grow their knowledge. We help cover the costs, like $5,250 per year in tuition reimbursement, so you can focus on more important things, like your path to greater opportunities.
