I have been working at DISH full-time (more than an year)

Pros

DISH is truly a company under transformation. This is a company that recognizes that there is a path to be a better company tomorrow than it was yesterday, and it is willing to take risky internal and external steps to get there. This is an unbelievably rare quality among large corporations and thoroughly under appreciated. It is a place where I believe the best idea has a better-than-average chance of coming to fruition. Moreover, I have found the culture to be the fairest I have participated in. It is a tough place to work? Yes -- most environments that expect high achievement are.

Cons

DISH needs to continue address the the various policies drive needless resentment among employees and thwart the company's need to attract and retain the best talent possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management has truly been working to listen more to employees in 2012; it's impacting engagement for the better -- keep it up in 2013.
Continue your willingness to address out-dated, or less-than-productive policies; expect more from managers when it comes to employee development and coaching.
Finally, stop being penny wise and pound foolish. Recognize the policies that irritate employees have a hard cost in terms of productivity and resentment.

    Pros

    great pay if you jump through every single hoop and dont have bad luck with customers who call in bullcrap trouble calls on you.

    Cons

    if a customer damages or alters their system, if they disconnect something/get a new tv or if the equipment goes bad or any such thing like this... they will call dish.. dish will build a trouble call.. which gets your paycheck docked.. matters not at all if it was in ANY way your fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees right (not saying more, just saying right). Train CSR reps not to build bullcrap trouble calls just to avoid the service call fee fight with the customer. This simple step will stop HALF your turnover rate.

    Pros

    its in Denver, loved living back in Denver

    Cons

    HR is out of control and use constructive criticism you give in reviews to your employees as weapons against employees

    Lack of accountability or performance measurement. Focus is on minutes in the building instead of results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage HR and make them support the teams as opposed to working against them

    Stop being yes men to Charlie when his ideas are not the best corse
