Former Employee - Material Planner in Englewood, CO
Former Employee - Material Planner in Englewood, CO

I worked at DISH full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Free satellite TV (although it's actually REQUIRED for employees to have it)

Cons

Very oppressive atmosphere. Upbraiding employees in public is common. Workload keeps increasing for salaried employees to get "free" overtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set a course and stick to it; quit changing direction all the time. Start treating employees fairly and with respect. Promote people who know their jobs rather than those who can push their employees to get more work from them.

    I worked at DISH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good breakfast burrito in the cafe at meridian. Fellow employees work incredibly hard and are also suffering in the company. Many good employees wasted by a bad company.

    Cons

    *crickets* ... ok... well this would be too short to hit the 20 word minimum if I listened to momma.
    The pay was low.. hours were long... management populated with pointy-haired bosses.
    The environment is one in which you will be used up, and when finally the last bit of utility is beat out of you they will fire you.
    They automatically fire 10% of the workforce yearly sometimes a higher percent and if you're here long enough you're either:
    1) drinking the koolaid of management and have learned to treat employees poorly or
    2) you're on the list to be fired.
    If you're lucky you quit and find a job elsewhere before this happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. You're part of a poisonous environment and before the last shreds of humanity and/or skill in management are wasted out of you, go find a job where you can use your talents for good instead of evil.
