Pros

Descent benefits and compensation if you're a permanent employee

Cons

Miserable work place for contact positions, ripped, humiliated and no future, you can stay up to six years on a contract and never get a real permanent offer despite promises for employment after a few months...

Advice to Management

DIRECTV Software engineering is a corrupt organization, If you are with the Vietnamese gang in the management, you're all set, otherwise you'll get screwed up... It is an organization in which your contribution and the value you bring to the company doesn't count, what matters is the relations, you can literately do nothing and grow if you're with the gang, or you may stay flat despite great work....
