    I don't use their health plan but overall the benefits package is decent. They allow you add money to a card that they match I believe that covers deductibles which is always a plus.

    Pay was okay, but under average. Reimbursement policy was very unacceptable. I paid for a lot of things out of my own pocket in order to avoid the hassle of the bureaucratic crap you had to shovel through to get something done.

    With Obamacare now around, medical benefits have become stripped and empty. Be aware of your options whether through the company or on your own.

    401K and tuition reimbursement are good, the best benefit is the discount on service, saves you about $100 a month.

    Horrible health insurance and very expensive high deductible

    Best thing is the free dish programming, stock purchase program, and the 401k company match. The worst is the expensive health insurance and high deductibles.

    Medical and Dental are incredibly costly. Thankfully I am in management, but for a front line hourly employee with a family it just isn't afordable.

    Dish offers a very comprehensive benefits package including 401k matching, full insurance, and discounted Dish TV.

    Free TV Service still requires $$ unless you want a 10-year old model Receiver with no special features. Health insurance is super-basic and the deductible is ridiculously high. Special Events and promos are geared toward 9-5 office people not the off-shift people (btw no shift incentive for working 2nd shift or graveyard) 401k is matched only 50% and only up to $1500 annually. Vacation time does not carry over to the next year.

    Best: The 401k is a fifty-cents-to-the-dollar match to employee contributions up to $2500 per year and the profit sharing has added a big boost to my retirement savings. Free top-of-the-line TV service is another great benefit.

    Worst: The medical insurance is terrible. There is only one option and it carries a $2500 deductible and costs the employee about $100. This is potentially ruinous if you're a low level employee. No sick pay until your second anniversary and less vacation time that many other large companies.
