Pros

The internship provided great access to upper management and afforded me a real opportunity to make a difference in the company.

Cons

None for the internship, but heard a lot of complaints from full-time employees about how they didn't have nearly the visibility they had thought they would coming out of the internship.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the internship program, none. It's fantastic.

    Pros

    I met some great people in the short time I was at Dish, nice technology, but the company is as cheap as they come. The benefits and PTO are a joke (seriously a joke, single person and my benefits were costing me $145 a month with a super high deductible and high co-pay) and the pay is horrendous, completely sub par for college educated people with experience.

    When the founder/owner is referred to internally as "cheapo Charlie" that should've been my first red flag. If you travel, they make you share hotel rooms with complete strangers! Ridiculous!

    The pay is in the bottom ten percent of the telecommunications industry and the turn over is very high. After taxes, health care and the forced 3% 401K contribution, unemployment pays more!

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are far, far below industry median. The company could care less about the turn over, they just replace you. No value in their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people a liveable wage! So many people at Dish are living paycheck to paycheck! Come on Charlie, you're worth 8 Billion dollars, share the wealth a little, your people work hard for you!
