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 have been working at DISH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always hiring Customer Service Reps

    Cons

    Does not promote their coaches to management positions. They prefer to hire outside the company for their management positions and the last time they did that, well lets just say it did not work out. Their solotion to replace the outside manager that did not work out, try to find someone outside the company again. They have several coaches that they use for managers when they need them, but when it comes time to promote, they choose to go outside. This is bad management and leads to poor morale for the site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your current employees. You do not need to go outside the company, you have qualified applications in front of your face. They seem to work fine when you need them to fill in as MIC-Manager on Duty, but when you need to hire a manger, you don't think they are good enough.
