    I worked at DISH full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good 401 k compensation.Profit sharing. 4 day week schedule. After 8 hours of work, considered OT.

    Cons

    Even as a technician, you are expected to meet sales quota selling Tv cleaner, speaker, etc. This was not a part of the job description when you first get hired. But to maintain as a technician IV , this was an expectation. And if you don't meet the standard, you will be terminated.

    I worked at DISH full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture at Dish is evolving towards a positive environment. They are working towards a resource-managed projects to share resources across different disciplines.

    Cons

    The benefits still lack in value. Responsibilities and project timelines are not feasible; unfortunately this sets up the project and members of the project for potential failure.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have suitable managers in place with the necessary background for managing technical teams.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work at DISH's corporate headquarters, and my experience has been great! The culture gives people a lot of responsibility, the access to senior management and executives is second to none, and corporate employees can actually see their impact on the company. It can be an intense work environment - expectations are high and you should expect to be busy, but the experience and learning opportunities are great. The level of responsibility that people get at DISH is what makes it so exciting and such a unique place.

    Cons

    Yes, you will be expected to be at work by 9 - but honestly, is that such a hardship?

    Advice to Management

    Improve the benefits so they are on par with other companies of similar size.

    I worked at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We took incoming calls and handled orders for new service contracts. Required little to no work creating sales leads, they called our office. Professional environment with lots of attention given to developing employees. Commission based pay offered opportunity to earn a ton of money really quickly (best week was about $2600) and constantly promoting internal employees to many positions.

    Cons

    Although no longer mandatory, lots of overtime is requested during busy times of the year. Extremely strict policies on clock-in clock-out that can be punishable by relinquishing large amounts of pay. Extremely strict policies on following their rules during sales calls, punishable by relinquishing some or all commission for the week, or immediate termination. Required to sell products like 1.5mbps DSL internet when available.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing dedicated employees for matters that don't impact the direct performance of their duties.

    Pros

    Good place to work, can move up with hard work and commitment. Not for everyone, results driven. Pay based on education and results.

    Cons

    Work hours not flexible. Hard to break into executive management. Management overworked at times due to limited resources and ability to make decisions
