Current Employee - Satellite Technician

I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Free DirecTV, decent benefits, LOTS of overtime

Cons

Never know when you are going to get home. The company expects 16 hours of work to be done in 8 hours by efficient techs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your techs better, they are the foundation of the company, you break the foundation it all crumbles.

    Former Employee - IT Principal Analyst in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at DIRECTV full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked with some amazing people. All employees get free DiRECTV. The overall benefits were good.

    Cons

    I worked with some horrible people. Constantly shifting organizational structure, no real advancement benefits, Sr. management were the only ones being promoted, less than cost of living wage increases, horrible HR department. Although it is one company, the business units exist as separate entities, which makes it difficult to have any uniformity in procedures and processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. They are he ones who ultimately drive your success. Be fair and impartial. Just dint take the word of the manager blindly.

    Pros

    Great company benefits and awesome product.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, and more politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop caring about your own department and start working as one company instead of numerous small departments/companies only looking out for yourself.
