This article discusses issues related to the affairs of Adelphia Communications Corp. Given the chaos employees at Adelphia Communications Corp. have endured over the last two years, it would be easy to assume morale at the MSO has taken a nosedive. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. And fires ravaged Adelphia's California plant last year and hurricanes are currently causing havoc in the Southeast, where the operator has a heavy concentration of systems. Several said they enjoy their jobs and love coming to work every day. Adelphia's corporate communications staff has created several print, e-mail and direct face-to-face mechanisms for fostering a full disclosure-type of environment at Adelphia.
