Pros

Some people who work there seem kind and easy to get along with.

Cons

Employees are treated like children - with the badge system (where you are not allowed to leave the building without swiping your badge in order for management to track hours), the core hours (employees are penalized if they enter the building after 9:00 am, regardless of how dangerous the weather conditions may be), and the fact that lunch has to be taken between 11:30-2:00 pm no matter what, I'm pretty sure inmates at a minimum-security prison are allowed more freedom than DISH Network employees. Employees are encouraged to eat lunch at their desk in order to "work through it", and forget about using the computer for personal reasons during lunch break - the surf control blocks any and all sites (God forbid employees spend five minutes looking at their bank statement during work hours). In fact, to get access to many sites that need to be used for legitimate work reasons, employees must go through a ridiculous chain approval that begins with the VP. I can summarize the culture with one word, "negative". My advice to anyone considering on embarking on a career at DISH Network - RUN AND SAVE YOURSELF!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have faith in your employees - you will only attract and retain the best and the brightest if you treat people like adults. Take a look at how SUCCESSFUL companies treat their employees - perhaps if you adopted some of their practices, your company wouldn't be on the verge of going out of business.

    Pros

    Opprotunities to go home early if it is slow
    Tends to be pretty busy, so the days go by fast
    Many different schedules

    Cons

    It never fails that every day you are getting repremanded for something (even the best employees).
    Very low base pay, expensive benefits with horrible coverage.
    The training leaves a lot to be desired. Tends to be a sink or swim kind of environment.
    The metrix that is used to determine bonus pay makes it nearly impossible to bonus.
    Extremely micro-managed.
    95% of calls are from irrate customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not my place to give advice.
