    I worked at DIRECTV as a contractor (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.

    Advice to Management

    Try to better understand how managers treat your employees.
