Pros

If you want to be in the entertainment business, many positions at Directv offer exposure to television networks, content producers and sports leagues. The work/life balance was good and you get free tv. There are a lot of good people working at this company and it is as much a technology company as it is a television company. The current CEO was there for a year before I left and I was impressed by the positive cultural shifts he was able to make in such a short time.

Cons

There is a very top down approach and constant restructuring, which means layoffs of good people. It really depends on your boss if you have a good experience here. A large portion of the staff is hired on contract, which was bad for employee morale because they are not allowed the same privileges as the full employees.
