    Pros

    Bonuses, free subscription, incentives, cool break room, fun co-workers, and benefits. They always have some type of give away every month.

    Cons

    Business policies are always changing and so does your schedule. This is a highly stressful job. They only care about metrics.

    Advice to Management

    The product needs to be improved so that less customers will call in irate. Also needs better scripts to assist customers

    I worked at DISH as a contractor

    Pros

    Liked the company and the services. The real dish employees had a pretty good gig.

    Cons

    Had to work for one of the regional contractors, Starwest Satellite, how they keep the contract I will never figure it out. Terrible management, good people, turnover rate to the point of not even bothering with names.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone that is worth having the contract for the Northwest and give it up. Might be easier on the thousands of people that have the system and keep a few customers in the process.

    Pros

    it is a great place for the most part. The work can be stressful but the training and sales bonus were awesome. Trainers were amazing.

    Cons

    I need an exception on my schedule temporarily for health reasons but even though other employees who had spent less time there got an exception, I never did. I was forced to leave the company after wracking up a couple thousand in doc bills trying to cope. Insurance sucked.

    Advice to Management

    Do not show such favoritism to some who can't work a specific day for a couple of weeks when others are literally suffering medical issues and truly need the help. I recognize hr tried to help a little but more could have been done. It was wrong to fawn all over me as a great employee but leave me no choice but to leave.

  8. Great job for people with common sense, and trouble shooting skills.

    Pros

    I love the 4 day work week, being by myself all day, and being reviewed individually as a tech with stats.

    Cons

    Selling smart home items. The management is constantly harrasing employees about selling extra stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the overbearing pressure of selling smart home items. Reward those who do it but leave good tech alone who still do a good job.

    Pros

    Working here at dish has been awesome! After a few changes last year the team has come together. Upper management and supervisors have been working closely with associates to increase employee engagement and teamwork. The changes have impacted our metrics in a very positive way.

    Cons

    The only bad thing about working at dish is the inability to address tenure employees for performance or behavior. Once you need to get on their case for performance, you face accusations of having favoritism or discrimination. These associates then tend to run to HR and complain about these things yet their performance continues.

    Advice to Management

    Please find a way to address these type of employees without getting into legal issues. No matter how hard others try to talk bad about dish, this company will always be the best place to work at.

  11. Love it here
