    Pros

    DISH Leadership is an extension of my own family. Constant growth and opportunities for promotions is done consistently. People are very driven, energetic and overall good place to work.

    Cons

    Benefits is a drag. Deductible is high. Pay is fair. Culture is great.

    Advice to Management

    FIx the benefits so we can get something that is worth the money. We can afford to if we really tried.

    Pros

    Good pay, education benefits( $5k/year), friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    A lot is expected, to some this is a con, but you will get the experience of having a lot of responsibilities very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Put some effort into correcting people's mindsets, this is a great place to work.

    Pros

    I LOVE coming to work every day because every day is new and challenging. I used to work for a company where I would sit around and watch youtube all day because of how dead and slow it was. When things were busy it was great, but once you got into your groove it was very boring without any challenge. Dish is not like that. I have not had a single day where I did not have at least 8 hours worth of work to be done. Yes it is stressful. Yes it is difficult. Yes it is challenging. If you want an easy job where you don't have anything to do, Dish is not the company for you. Dish will provide a great pay but in return they ask you to not only do the job you were hired to do, but to be the best at it. People like to say they "give their all" or they "like a challenge", working for Dish will prove if you are all talk or if you really do believe that. DIsh is certainly not a company for everyone as well. I really appreciate just how honest this environment can be, and yes that means you do have to wear a thick skin. However, that honesty, at times can be hard to hear, drives me to be better every single day. When I do exceptional work, I receive praise. When I don't live up to the expectation I receive honest and direct feedback. If you are the type that can not handle honest and open feedback and use it as a tool to be better, this likely is not a great company for you. Again, many people say they like honest and open feedback, but this company will hold you accountable to see if you really do want that or if you are just using a catch phrase.

    Cons

    I am not in love with the benefits. Yes I am covered if something does happen to me, but it is expensive. I was spoiled with my wife's benefits as they would have been considered "phenominal" by anyone's standards. Dish has a medical plan that is pretty middle of the road. For where I live, it's cheaper and better than the marketplace, but I do expect more out of a company this size. I also am not a fan of how time away from work is treated. I would prefer to have just a set number of paid days that I can take for any reason, personal or otherwise. Instead there is paid time off and sick time. Paid time does not carry over year to year (frustrating) and 40 hours of sick time does. With this structure, I feel obligated to take all of my paid time off each year, whether I want to or not (not going to throw it away) and I will make sure I only have 40 hours of sick time to carry over...so again whether I need to or not, I will take sick days. In previous employment enviornments I have found that providing a more flexible time away from work plan, the employee's tend to be happier, more productive and less deceptive about why they need time off. Many studies do show that work forces do benefit from a flexible time away from work plan.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see a complete overhaul of our benefits program. I addressed most of the concerns in the "cons" section. Also, in the last 3 years I have heard "we need to trust our management team to manage". We have spent a substantial amount of money investing in the development of our management force, yet I have not seen much in the way of cutting down the beauracracy and red tape of approvals to get anything done.

    Pros

    Leadership was decent. Didn't have to buy tools or uniforms. Training was good and wasn't too rushed. Room for promotion

    Cons

    Expected to sell products and do the installations. The pay kind of low for the work that you are expected to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push sales, work on the metrics. The metrics are very skewed against the technician. Kind of unfair

    Nothing is bad here because everything is great. Like I said before, everyone should work here because it's so much fun. You work hard and make money
