    I worked at DIRECTV full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have a strategy and design teams that are reinventing the digital entertainment landscape. Amazing talent, collaboration and guts. The real deal, folks.

    Cons

    DIRECTV is a white knight battling for what's right for TV customers, but the content rights landscape is really tricky. With their reach and clout, they will prevail on behalf of all the people paying good money for good TV.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Don't give up. Don't settle. Fight the good fight, and keep the team tight and strong.

    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong company that's not going anywhere. Good benefits. High morale. Strong senior leadership. Competitive pay. Complimentary DIRECTV. Currently undergoing major building renovation to modernize work environment, meeting spaces, cafeteria, and gym.

    Cons

    Long commute (for me). Competitive industry with increasing competition. For me, not a clear path of growth opportunity (my co-workers have been around for over a decade in same position).
