Pros

Great pay without a college degree Choose your own schedule 4 weeks of training Sales Comission Bonuses based on your scores Health, Dental, Vision 401k (company matches up to $1500/year) Stock purchase (15% discount off market price) Free DISH Service (America's Top 250 normally 69.99, we just pay tax which about $3/mo.) One-on-One time with coach to help improve ourselves

Cons

They offer optional time off a lot, if you aren't careful you won't have a paycheck large enough to cover expenses. Talking all day when you are sick is tough

Advice to Management

Keep a closer eye on your employees. If you notice that an employee has a sore throat or has lost their voice, offer to give them time off of the phones for training. Little things like that make a big difference to us.

    Dish is a fortune 200 company without a clue

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Free satellite television, the building is nice, clean and there is a cafeteria on the premises.

    Cons

    The management is terrible! The work load is completely unrealistic. Employees are currently expected to work mandatory 50 hour work weeks, and can be pulled in on weekends (no questions asked). The company preaches their values all the time and even goes as far as making employees carry a card with them that lists the companies values. If you don't have the card on you, they will write you up. I have seen so many talented employees leave dish for jobs that pay half as much just to get away from the company. (Even the management is unhappy there and we have had 4 managers leave within the last two months.) There is no incentive to move up in the company because the higher you move up the closer you get to the problem.

    Advice to Management

    The people you hire represent your company, if they are not satisfied with their work place they will tell others how poorly they are treated. Dish has a reputation of being a sweat shop. You can not push your beliefs onto your employees. If you want them to be salespeople for your company treat them better. Employees that enjoy their work; are more productive, more likely to talk positively about the company and in turn become great salespeople.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Co-workers are the only reason worth working there.

    Cons

    No recognition, they dont accurately job descriptions, no company structure and poor communication internally, people hired for management positions have no management experience and the company does not work to build management skills, company does not care about employee safety (massive snow storms closed all government operations and state offices including schools) DISH still required employees to show up and threatened to write up anyone late to work or anyone who called out because of the weather.

    Advice to Management

    Structure, create some! Care more about employee safety, hire people with skills that can do the job.
