Pros

If you are good at Sales, you can make a decent salary.

It's better than being Unemployed

Cons

Treated like a machine rather than a person.

Constantly threatened with the possibility of losing your job

Long hours, mandatory overtime, no paid holidays

Frequent schedule changes

If you have children, make sure there aren't any emergencies! You will receive an "Occurence" (essentially a write up) if you have to leave work early for a sick child, etc.

If you have a bad week and don't meet your metrics they will actually deduct money from your pay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that you have actual living, breathing humans working for you, who have families that they would like to see more than once a week. Treat people with respect and empathy and it will go a long way. Employees that feel valued are more inclined to work harder and go the extra mile.

    Pros

    It's a job. You get paid for working there. Joseph Clayton and his managers micromanage you to death. There are fingerprint scanners so they know where you are at at all times.

    Cons

    It's the meanest company to work for in America. Senior management will yell at you and berate you in front of other employees if you do something wrong. They have no morals here. Working conditions are terrible. It is like prison!! Why work here, when you can work for one of the top 100 best companies to work for in America.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are people and we have feelings. Please listen to us!! We're begging you!

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

    Pros

    I really can not think of any pros to working for Dish unless you are under 30 and included in the directors circle of friends.

    Cons

    Dish doesn't want to pay for the knowledge of their employees. If a person has a Computer Science degree they will steal your knowledge on recordings then train it to others, but never pay you even a the salary you are worth. (unless you are under 30)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give up the playground bullying and put the people that deserve it in the positions deserved instead of your out of the office playmates!
