highly politicized environment where honesty and openness is at a premium

Director (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at DIRECTV

Prosgreat people, excellent benefits, collaborative environment, strong sense of corporate identity and an army of committed team players willing to work all hours to achieve a goal or fix a problem.

Consempire building at senior management level, lack of integrity (limited to an isolated group/individual) driven by the "blame game", nepotism, ego-centric management style which discounts the input value of employees and teams and leads to stifling of creativity, you are either "in-the-click" or you are nowhere and will go nowhere.
