To what extent is this company a good stepping stone for something better? I have tried to gain as much experience as possible during the 4 years I have been here, but I clearly doubt that the experience from here has any great value that better companies are looking for. I may be wrong, but it seems to me that the people from this company don’t rank well elsewhere.

Think about what you've done at the company, what you've learned, what you've lead. This company is not going to open doors for you like a FAANG company would (at least in the technology/commerce realm), but get out of it what you can.
If your young Take some advice Get the he–l out. This place is a disgrace. Ask anyone you work with, No one should be ever be treated like cr–p , disrespected, put down or any of this nonsense! Go work like a human being There is bigger and better opportunities then this shithole
- 5 years for fs, construction and osp? Thats not alot of experience at all..
Spent 6yrs with cablevision and started looking. I worked field service, construction, and osp. When I started looking I got an offer at 6.5yrs it took 1.5yrs to get in the company I got the offer for due to who knows what but finally got in. I learned a lot at cablevision and it got me where I am. I took a pay cut to get here but already more than doubled my salary and I’m not near top pay yet. It’s all of what you make of it and how you take the risk to get there. Not everyone can do it but the risk is often worth the reward.
I can definitely tell you one thing . You’ll learn about working with selfish but kissers like the first replier who think they got their promotion from putting into the job more than you did. You’ll learn how to deal w an extreme amount of stress and how corporate greed is alive and well . You will also learn how a company can abuse its workers and how foolish it is not to stick together . They’re are plenty of lessons to be learned with this company to take to the next job . And when you get there you’ll be glad and extremely appreciative you won’t have to deal with this . But don’t let too much time pass bc you’ll regret wasting a good portion of your life when you could have built a better career somewhere else.
You get out of a job what you put into it. Don't confuse your time on the job with marketable skills. There's a lot you can learn while at any company, or you can spend time skating by on just the one job. It's been the same since you were in kindergarten. If you aren't putting the time and effort for the job you really want, and it sounds like you aren't, then all you're qualifying yourself for is the job you have now. Leadership isn't given, it isn't a job title, leadership is assumed.
