Directv is a great place to start, but not a great place to grow.

Pros

Free DIRECTV, decent benefits. The health plan is great. It's a good place to start off your career. The managers in our department are laid back and are great with letting us take time off.

Cons

It's hard to get promoted. A lot of hiring is done from outside of the company. There doesn't seem to be a lot of respect towards young employees working hard to make the company better.

Advice to Management

Start promoting from within. Try to change culture of a company. A minimum of positions should be filled with people who are already directv employees. Employees should be encouraged to apply, not threatened.

    Pros

    DIRECTV is the best entertainment in the world, being a part of the Revolution is rewarding accross all platforms.

    Cons

    You cannot expect to join the team and expect to become the boss immediately. As with all career choices, time must be spent within the industry before this type of reward is available. You must learn your profession, especially the Satellite TV world.

    Advice to Management

    Train, train and then train some more. Technical training is not something learned in a short period of time, CSR's and Technicians must be dedicated individuals with a technical background with the expectation to make DIRECTV their choice for a career.

    Pros

    Great people, fun atmosphere, technologically challenging

    Cons

    No sick days. Only PTO days which are used for vacation + sick days.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back sick days. Not having sick days means people come in to work sick and infect everyone else around them.
