    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - excellent office location. most iconic area in NYC. tough to handle at Christmastime with tourists, but the abundance of food and sights in the area makes it worth it

    - strong Fortune 100 company, soon to be Fortune 10 company pending the completion of the AT&T transaction

    - strong, youthful culture in many groups

    Cons

    - from a purely industry perspective, Pay-TV is on the decline and it remains to be seen how DTV can compete with Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc.

    - the impending AT&T acquisition will strengthen the company as a whole, but might make certain roles redundant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the course and keep an open and honest dialogue with your employees regarding the AT&T deal.

    Don't cut back on excellent employee benefits (401k, pension, free premium TV service)

    Interview Details

    It was very brief, waited for about 5 minutes in the lobby. Two interviewers, trading off questions. Situational based questions, how do you react to certain situations etc. very nice people, didn't take the job but only because I received better offer. I would have been fine accepting the position.
