    I worked at DISH full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent pay.
    Some Overtime.
    Decent benefits.
    Some computer work; data entry. Not on my feet the entire shift.

    Cons

    This office is a smoking establishment, so be prepared to breathe cigarette smoke all day, every day.

    Extremely high stress. You are expected to do the work of 2-3 people; you're expected to be exceptional. If you're the average employee, that makes mistakes, you're head is going to be on the chopping block every day you show up for work. Especially when upper management visits to inspect the office and warehouse.

    Current Employee - Intern in Denver, CO

    I have been working at DISH as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The location of Denver, CO is obviously a huge plus and all the interns are housed in a long stay hotel where they can get to know each other well. The corporate headquarters is located on a beautiful campus right next to a golf course. My superiors were generally interested in my learning and the benefits I would take away from the internship experience.

    Cons

    Not all interns are created alike, with some schools receiving more salary compensation than others.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    DISH offers unparalleled opportunity for career growth; in my time with the company I've been promoted several times and encouraged to take on projects that have challenged me and allowed me to improve my competency within my field. DISH recognizes and rewards great performance.

    Cons

    DISH at times seems to view their employees as an expense rather than an asset; the benefits plan includes significantly high premium and out-of-pocket costs, though costs are lower than I would be able to find via the government's healthcare exchanges.

    I have been working at DISH

    Pros

    I earn good money and I have so many opportunities to learn new things. I applied for and got a new position internally after only a year with the company. There are countless training opportunities and management encourages me to learn new things and to tackle new challenges. The 401(k) has a generous match, the company contributed to our profit sharing this year and there is tuition reimbursement and an employee stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    The medical benefits aren't great, but I think most company benefits changed this year. 2 weeks paid time off is not competitive in today's work environment. Not centrally located.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the paid time off policy and consider either allowing telecommuting or open an office that is more centrally located for those that don't live in the extreme southeast metro area.

    I've been with DISH for a little over a year now and I am completely satisfied with my job. The people are fantastic and very helpful.

Management keeps us engaged and we are very well informed.

    Cons

    Benefits and PDO time could use some attention.

    Keep up with the improvements, it is making a difference!

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Never a dull moment - my favorite job I've ever had by far. Culture of employees who really care about being the best. I moved into a completely new job role here during my second year of employment - and after working hard for several years, ended up being recognized as a high performer inside and outside the company - a true entrepreneurial opportunity that I would have never been able to experience at another company. More recently, our CEO/President Joe Clayton is helping DISH become the company I've always wanted to work for.

    Cons

    Still lagging in certain benefits and time off. Sharing of rooms when travelling (for employees below VP level)!!! Fairly cumbersome legal/contractual process when working on agreements with suppliers. No corporate procurement cards for travel or other expenses.
