I worked at DIRECTV full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

This is a good place to get a start on your career. I started at a low level, low skill, hourly job and worked my way up through the ranks to a position that fit my university education. Management is pretty good throughout the organization. Benefits are great.

Cons

Pay is low for the industry and low for the size of the company. Nepotism seems to be a global issue throughout the organization. If you aren't connected be prepared to show your true value. Actual skill will eventually be rewarded but you must be patient.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees fair wages and be mindful to not pay subordinates higher salaries than their direct superiors.

    Pros

    Great benefits
    wonderful working enviorment
    good career development opportunities

    Cons

    senior leadership is almost never an internal hire out of a call center except in Denver
    pay is low compared to national average and isn't always tied to performance across business units/locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the call centers for managment opportunities. Schooling isn't everything, good people may not have the degree you are looking for, look at their performance and experience

    Pros

    Decent benefits with free DIRECTV is a plus.

    Cons

    Expectations are set high there is a lack of work life balance. Being constantly told what you are doing wrong. Everyone is working in silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head out of the clouds.
