A Business Analyst's view of Dish

Current Employee - Business Analyst  in  Denver, CO
Current Employee - Business Analyst in Denver, CO

I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

For the most part, Dish provides a challenging, fast paced and collaborative environment. There are many lifelong learning opportunities due to a large variety of projects and people involved (i.e. a variety of ethnic and age groups with a variety of skill sets). There is a feeling of excitement and anticipation as new employees are being hired and new projects are being considered (e.g. how are we going to use the broadband spectrum).

Cons

There is still some co-worker negativity and resistance to change, although this is changing with the addition of new employees/management. Some long time employees seem to have been pushed up into management without the necessary skill sets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to work on rewarding and promoting based on performance. Review mid-level manager skill sets (e.g. ability to praise, encourage and enable). Continue to improve and promote teamwork (e.g. between business and IT). Continue your efforts in making Dish a desireable and fun place to work.

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Englewood, CO

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I work in Service. Good management, training, great opportunities for growth. You get enough training to get you started and are not handheld. You are encouraged to think for your self and to come up with out of the box solutions.
    Great people to work with. Flexible work environment. Free Dish TV service

    Cons

    I really have no cons. I have read the recent articles where people are said to get pay deductions if they tip over 15% on a covered meal however compant policy clearly states up to 15% gratuity. If you over tip, don't put it on your expense report and only claim the 15% and there will not be a deduction. You can't fault a company for your lack of following policy. The finger print thing is security used with an RFID badge to ensure the person carrying the badge is really you.

    Pros

    DISH appreciates and rewards talent and hard work. If you are the type of person that doesn't let obstacles get in your way and has a drive to succeed, you will succeed here. There are many opportunities to learn different areas of the business and people frequently move from department to department getting more experience. Experience is valued along with education. Fast paced and a lot of change mean you won't get bored. Job security and opportunity for advancement if you are hard working and willing to push yourself.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment can be challenging. Department silos exist and can be a hinderance to the smooth flow of information. Human resources hasn't always been employee friendly but that is beginning to change. Benefits and compensation could be better. The high deductible medical benefits are certainly not top of the line. Compensation is below average unless ou have a manager that knows how to push through the obstacles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fair compensation should be a focus. We have continued to use the same performance appraisal and compensation process and unless you have a management team willing to fight for fair pay, you are likely to make less than industry average. Continue to communicate honestly. If you want your employees to put the customer first you must continue to put the employee first. The culture shift needs to continue, it has been positive thus far.
