Terrible Company to Work For

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Englewood, CO

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

ConsEmployees 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 Senior ManagementHave 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
