I worked at DIRECTV as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Professional work environment. Some great people to work with in all departments - Sales Ops, Field Services, Supply Chain, Customer Care, Analytics and IT. Had one manager that spent extra time training me and helped enable project success. Lots of challenging work.

Cons

Overly political. Difficult to get promoted. Too process oriented. Long release cycles lead to missed requirements in UAT stage. QA department is useless. Worked with one of the most diabolical managers in my career who purposely tried to sabotage one of my projects - they are no longer with the firm. Had another manager who used his team for the purpose of self aggrandizement. Challenging marketplace as future subscriber growth will be limited as competitive pressures from streaming persist.

    I worked at DIRECTV full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Can't really think of one positive

    Cons

    5 am morning meetings once a week, lack of integrity from the leadership, having a "no school policy" for employees (why wouldn't a company want their employee to extended their education, poor communication skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the "no school" policy. It's not cool to drop out of school.
